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.

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”).
