Ready Player One

Ready Player One
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenwriter: Ernest Cline, Zak Penn
Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Release Date: March 29, 2018

Ready Player One is pure madness. Steven Spielberg‘s latest film is an unrelenting barrage of pop culture references that will leave you broken, battered, and barely alive. It may be narratively thin, but the visuals are just so beautiful you won’t even care what’s going on. And as crazy as it sounds, the film manages to have some nice layers to it.

There is also a great underlying message that almost gets lost in the chaos, but somehow, Spielberg is able to bring it all together and give us one spellbinding feature of nostalgia. Check out my full review of the film below.

Ready Player One

It’s hard to believe just how many references director Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s Ready Player One made it into the trailers. But the source material has always been chock full of Easter Eggs, so we always knew we would get some sort of goodies. The trailers that have already been revealed teased the idea of a world where gamers can interact with notable vehicles like the Batmobile and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. There are also characters like the Iron Giant, Chung-Li from Street Fighter, the first Gundam, and more.

And now, as the ultimate tribute to all things geek, Warner Bros. has dropped the latest poster for the film that honors the great artist Drew Struzan. And as you might have guessed, it too has plenty of Easter Eggs to look for. Check it out below.
