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.
Warner Bros. is making yet another big push for their dreamy Steven Spielberg film, Ready Player One. Based on the Ernest Cline novel of the same name, the film centers on Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) who has found the Easter eggs hidden by the late OASIS creator James Donovan Halliday (Mark Rylance). Whoever is in possession of the Easter egg will inherit Halliday’s assets, fortunes, and control over the Oasis. So as you can imagine, everyone who plays in the escapist world wants to get their hands on it.
Now a new “Dreamer” trailer goes further in depth in the story, while also offering fans another glimpse of the upcoming film. Check it out below.
Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One will hit theaters in a matter of weeks, but for those who got an early look at the film at SXSW, the result was a mixed bag of reactions. Some call it one of Spielberg’s best films to date, while others say it’s being overhyped.
It may be 2018 in Austin, Texas, but in one corner in the midst of SXSW, it’s Columbus, Ohio in the year 2045. That’s the setting of Steven Spielberg‘s new film, Ready Player One, based on the smash hit novel by Ernie Cline. The Warner Bros. media team transformed an Austin nightspot into the futuristic setting of the film for the interactive festival.
Ready Player One already promises to be one of the most entertaining films of the year. The Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel of the same name features an overwhelming amount of pop culture references that are all woven into a story about digital escapism and a revolution. But for those who may not be familiar with the novel, it’s hard to imagine what a world where “the limits of reality are your own imagination” would look like.
However, the latest trailer gives us another look at that world, while also squeezing in some new footage and a few more pop culture references. Check it out below.
