We first mentioned the movie Ready Player One six years ago in our review of the Ernest Cline novel here at borg.com. Warner Bros. kicked off San Diego Comic-Con with director Steven Spielberg showing the first teaser trailer for the movie. The audiobook, read by Wil Wheaton and currently available free here at Amazon with an Audible sign-up, has been a huge hit with fans, almost taking on a life of its own. We saw the second trailer last December, and the Easter Eggs started to pile up.
Iron Giant, Freddy Krueger, the Back to the Future DeLorean. Lots of references for gamers in particular. Warner Bros. released the third and likely final trailer for the film this weekend. VR is the theme this time around.
Ready Player One stars X-Men: Apocalypse’s Tye Sheridan, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, Killjoys, Tomb Raider, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Game of Thrones, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Hannah John-Kamen, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Ben Mendelsohn, Star Trek and Star Wars’ Simon Pegg, and Bates Motel’s Olivia Cooke.
Here is the third trailer for Ready Player One, with a little help from Willy Wonka:
It’s almost here. Ready Player One is in theaters March 30, 2018.
