Chucky Appears in the New ‘Ready Player One’ Trailer!

When the first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One hit out of Comic Con earlier this year, we were super excited to spot Freddy Krueger in it. The film, an adaptation of Ernest Cline’s bestseller, will be loaded with nostalgic callbacks, and wouldn’t ya know it, another slasher icon is along for the ride.

In the brand new trailer that just dropped today, killer doll Chucky is spotted! This will be the first time Chucky has appeared on the big screen since 2004’s Seed of Chucky!

Check him out at the 2:14 mark!

Ready Player One arrives on March 30, 2018.

“The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.”

Spielberg directed from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The film was produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah; with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Mud”), Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Bates Motel”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One – A Star Wars Story,” “Bloodline”) and T.J. Miller (“Deadpool,” “Silicon Valley”), with Simon Pegg (the “Star Trek” movies, the “Mission: Impossible” movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” upcoming “Dunkirk”).

    Well, Cult of Chucky was projected on some theaters, so he has appeared more recently in the big screen, haha.

    • John Connor

      I don’t get why Cult didn’t get a Fathom showing like Jeepers Creepers 3.

      Although I’m grateful it didn’t because I really enjoyed seeing it for the first time at home where I could pause at various times just to let whatever cool-as-fuck moment sink in.

      • Saturn

        Probably because Don Mancini isn’t part of a certain Hollywood club. Thankfully.

      • DeadFuck

        Fuck Jeepers Creepers

      • Luca Vasto

        in some countries Cult has had a fathom showing, for example in my country, Italy (i saw it in theater) and in France, Japan, Australia and New Zeland the movie has had limited release. But i agree with you, chucky deserve more respect. i haven’t seen yet Jeepers Creepers 3 but everyone who saw it said to me that the movie is terrible 🙁

        • John Connor

          Jeepers Creepers 3 was good, not great.
          The problem with it is that it felt like a setup, a mere bridge to another.
          Not bad though.

          • Luca Vasto

            oh good 🙂 when the movie will be released in my country (probably only in DVD) I will definitely watch it. Creeper is a very badass monster 😉

          • John Connor

            It definitely still has the badass factor the first two had.

          • Luca Vasto

            good 😉

    • Luca Vasto

      Unfortunately Chucky franchise has always been mistreated by the terrible Universal Pictures, my hope is that Mancini
      will be able to take away the rights to Universal and maybe give them to
      Warner, New Line or Lionsgate ….
      However, in
      my country, Italy, Cult of Chucky was released in theaters for the
      Fantafestival in Rome and I went to see it and I’m happy, Cult of Chucky
      is amazing.

      • John Connor

        How is it mistreated by Universal when they’ve put out nothing but phenomenal entries all written/headed by Don Mancini?

        • Luca Vasto

          Relegating
          Chucky to releases only in festivals and immediately on DVD is shameful,
          a similar treatment is right for franchise like Hellraiser or Children
          of the corn which sucks. NOT for Chucky

          • John Connor

            So far its worked out wonderfully.
            Curse and Cult are phenomenal.
            As long as Don Mancini is in charge and practical effects dominate over computer-generated then Universal is doing more than right by the series.

          • Luca Vasto

            Undoubtedly the last two
            chapters are amazing, and for this reason Universal should make sure
            that this franchise returns to have a good distribution (theatrical
            release worldwide), in these years that are made stupid mockumentary,
            ridiculous ghost story and many horror films that do not deserve distribution is wrong to distribute chucky movies with this mode.
            Chucky is an icon like Freddy, Jason, Michael or Leatherface, deserves a serious distribution. As
            I said this saga is not like that of Hellraiser (thank God), then, with
            the next chapters or Universal begins to distribute them as the first
            five chapters or it is better that the rights pass to another major.
            My personal opinion of course 😉

            PS: sorry for my bad english 🙂

  • Nathan Michael

    I am still scared by this movie. I just don’t get much from the book in it. It’s definately going to be some shoehorning of the plot because there’s no way they could put a quest for 3 keys , 3 gates and the key in one movie

    • Justin McGill

      I was about to say something similar. Not that I have any hate against the visuals or cast.. but of the trailers I am just not “feeling” the book in any of it.

    • Chance LeBoeuf

      The book doesn’t even give much to work with to begin with so References: The Movie seems pretty faithful. All Ready Player One was was a poorly written slog of pages the author used as a platform to sport his expansive nerd knowledge.

  • Tony

    Lol what a Stupid Movie.I can only see Chuckys Silhouette for exact one Second.

  • This looks so much better than the first trailer

  • I don’t get all the hate, you know critics are going to tear this shit apart for the CGI so why don’t we all just appreciate that a movie attempted to give us a fantasy roster we always dreamed of having in an action movie? Yeah it probably is a huge cash grab, but it still looks entertaining. It might even age gracefully if it becomes a cult success.

  • gjk2012 .

    Probably the only time you will see Freddy and Chucky is in the few seconds of the movie that appeared in the trailer. So people shouldn’t get excited just for that. People will get to see more of the Back to the Future DeLorean than anything else.

  • Papa_spoosh

    I want a movie about how hey obtained the rights to all of the characters they’re allowed to reference. Seems like a better story

    • gjk2012 .

      They got away with it because they semi darkened and darkened out most of the characters as seen in the trailers just enough so they don’t have to pay anyone.

  • DeadFuck

    Fuck this movie. I blame my generation. I feel like we didn’t do enough to stop it.

    • American Atheist

      Spielberg isn’t exactly your generation. He’s more like my generation and it looks like he’s desperate to make a movie based off of 80’s nostalgia. Hollywood is so pathetic and lazy.

  • American Atheist

    Who doesn’t appear in this trailer? Hollywood is desperate to throw anything in this clusterfuck of a “movie”.

    Spielberg needs to hang it up if this is the best shit that he can come up with. I saw the trailer at the theater and laughed and cringed at how awful it looks.

    • Saturn

      I wonder if they’ll chuck in Pennywise before release (I know the original tv thing was the 90’s, but the book was 86 so maybe they’ll do it).

  • Christopher Nickerson

    Have the book at home to read, but the two trailers for the movie have done nothing to make me want to see it

  • Rick-Taylor

    I feel this is another one of those trailers that give away the whole movie. The kid finds the literal easter egg, the guy who set up the quest isn’t really dead, etc.

  • Bart Crowe

    Why not just remove what little of the plot there is and just have a 145 minute parade of references? We can all hoot and holler at each piece of nostalgia as it goes by. Woo Baby! There’s Skeeter from Doug playing with Nickelodeon Gak! Hoo Doggies! Look it’s Waldo from Where’s Waldo playing WWF No Mercy on the N64 with Ghostface from Scream! Hot Diggity Damn! That’s Big Pussy from The Sopranos driving the A-Team Van!!!

  • Mark

    this will flop big time, the trailers make the movie look a jumbled mess and too hard to understand everything that is going on, I think it will put a lot of people off

  • Court

    Imagination Land: The Movie.

  • Luca Vasto

    “This will be the first time Chucky has appeared on the big screen since 2004’s Seed of Chucky!”

    that’s not true, Curse and Cult are not TV movies , they have appeared in the big screens of the festivals and for example Cult has been released in the theaters of some countries.
