Gaming cultures collective head exploded this afternoon as the trailer for Steven Spielberg’s next foray into blockbuster film making – Ready Player One – made its much anticipated reveal at San Diego Comic Con and man – you talk about a geeks dream come to life. Have a look for yourself:
Based on the novel by Ernest Cline it takes us into the not so distant future where VR is the only solitude left in an overcrowded, nasty looking Columbus Ohio. Lots of horror references scattered throughout the trailer. Give it a look and see if you find them.
Spielberg describes the film as “the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time about a decade I was very involved in, the ’80s, and a flash-forward to a future that is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not.”
Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts star. Have to wait till next spring for the good though. This one hits theaters on March 30, 2018.
