Holy. Shit. We are so ready.
Steven Spielberg just unleashed an incredible blast of nostalgia at Comic-Con, unveiling the hotly-anticipated trailer for his Ready Player One. Not only does Freddy Krueger make a brief appearance (yes, Freddy in a Spielberg film!), but so too does the Back to the Future DeLorean and even The Iron Giant!
Nostalgic reminders aside… this looks AMAZING.
In the book, written by Ernest Cline…
“In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines–puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win–and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.”
The cast includes Tye Sheridan, T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, Hannah John-Kamen, Olivia Cooke and Ralph Ineson.
Look for it on March 30, 2018.
