The official poster for Ready Player One has arrived and it’s an epic look at posters from the past. Something that could have fallen through a portal from the 1980s and landed intact. Not only is the film a love letter to that decade, now the poster takes the baton and runs with it.
It has soo many references to pop culture of the last two decades of the 20th century. From Space Invaders to The Iron Giant via monster trucks!
The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense 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. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
