READY PLAYER ONE - New Promo Spot Shows Batman on Mount Everest and Hi Res Nostalgic Poster Art
We've got some more Ready Player One goodies for you today! A new promo spot has been released that offers fans plenty of new footage including Batman climbing Mount Everest, more footage of The Iron Giant in action, and Chucky going ballistic.
I've also included high-resolution versions of those new posters for the film that pay tribute to classic movies of the past. These are much better versions of the ones we previously posted. The posters were inspired by The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Beetlejuice, Blade Runner, The Matrix, Labyrinth, Risky Business, Bullitt, The Lost Boys, Rambo, and The Iron Giant.
I've seen a lot of people giving those posters crap, but you know what? They were made all in good fun! It fits right in line with what this movie is about. I just assume the majority of the people who don't understand what is going on with this movie and are constantly talking crap about it, haven't read the book. If that's the case, and they consider themselves movie geeks, I hope they remedy that and read it.
I'm really curious to see how this movie does at the box office and what audiences will think of it. I really hope that it's a success, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, enjoy the new TV spot!
The film is set in 2045, with the real world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But people have found salvation in the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday died, he left his immense fortune, and total control of the OASIS, to the first person to win three keys, unlocking the door to a digital Easter egg he hid somewhere in his seemingly infinite creation. His challenge launched a game that gripped the entire world, but after five years the scoreboard remained tauntingly empty…until now.
An unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan)—under his avatar name, Parzival—finally conquers the first contest, instantly becoming a celebrity…and a target. Ruthless corporate mogul Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) proves he will stop at nothing to beat Wade and take over the OASIS, and suddenly the virtual stakes are all-too-real. Ultimately realizing he cannot win alone, Wade joins forces with his friends—now the High Five (Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki). Together, they are hurled into a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.
The movie stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen and Ben Mendelsohn.
Ready Player One gets its game on when it opens on March 29, 2018.
