Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One gets a retro-style poster

Go Retro With The New Ready Player One Poster

A film based on popular science fiction book Ready Player One is nearing completion - and the film's promotional poster has already got our hearts racing. The new poster's stylish and classic, and doesn't suffer from the extended leg problem of the film's original poster.

A new poster has been released for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, and while the film itself promises to be filled with pop culture references throughout, Tye Sheridan's pose and the inclusion of the Delorean auto immediately bring back memories of the classic poster for the 1985 film Back to the Future.

Sheridan plays Wade Watts, a young kid living in the year 2045 when civilization spends most of their time in a virtual reality world called the OASIS.

Miller (Deadpool, Silicon Valley), with Simon Pegg (the Star Trek movies, the Mission: Impossible movies) and Oscar victor Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, Dunkirk) round out the cast. This new poster gives us a good look at some of the virtual reality characters and other supporting players in the film, including those characters portrayed by Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance. Bruce Berman will serve as executive producer. When Halliday dies, he leaves his vast fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.

Warner Bros Pictures has set a Thursday, March 29, 2018 theatrical release date.
