'Ready Player One' Gets First Official Trailer

December 11, 2017


This is the first official trailer for the film adaptation of Ernest Cline's 'Ready Player One.' It looks intense. Some of the things I recognized from the book, but a bunch I did not. Of course I don't have the best memory, so I may have just forgotten them. Or maybe I never actually read the book -- now I'm questioning everything. Am I in the OASIS? "And choosing to spend your time in a virtual reality cubicle?" Okay so I'm not in the OASIS, we know that.

Keep going for the trailer.

Thanks to Rocky and Dave L, who agree we need the OASIS now so I can pretend the real world doesn't exist.

    Columbus, Ohio, 2045?

    Oh, Facebook....Also, Ben Mendelsohn is excellent in everything.

    I loved loved loved the book and read it several times. I'm dreading the movie being a CGI shlock-fest though. With all the 80s references and vibe and whatnot, it would be better if it was directed in the style of an 80s movie. I'd love to see a cheesy, static-filled opening sequence with cheesy, synthesized, cheesy music playing like on Stranger Things. But, it's gonna be big-budget and schlocky I'm afraid.

    Huge fan of the book. I plan to watch the movie as a tribute to the book. Any fan would know they can't make the movie exactly like the book. There is no way the could get all the rights to all the references in the book.

    I'm really curious to see how they handle the whole re-enactment of the movie War Games. Will they cut it completely or try to actually redo some scenes from that classic???

    Pretty sure it's going to be 99% CGI schlock. Also pretty sure it's going to include a lot of "cameo" appearances by about 1000x more pop culture references than were even in the book. https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/upl...

    I enjoyed the book, but this movie has me cringing just with the preview.

  • Kelly

    Then don't watch it. I loved the book. Treating the movie as a tribute to the book not a recreation when i watch it. There are too many references for the to be able to get the rights to make it like the book.

  • Draco Basileus

    Everyone get your "Pop Culture Marketing" bingo boards ready! This movie is going to be rife with gross product placements that weren't in the original book.

    For shame, Spielberg, for shame.

    And I'll still probably pay to see it in 3D...and buy the UHD version when it comes out...God I'm such a whore for this stuff.

    I'm so glad it didn't end up being a product placement simulator.

  • Jenness

    The entire book was just product, music and video game placement really. I'm just wanting to see how true they are to the book which I loved, despite it's pro-atheism.

  • Kelly

    If you're expecting it to be true to the book. You haven't read the book. There's no way they could get all the rights to make the movie exactly like the book. I'm a huge fan of the book. Read and listened to the audio book several times. And I'm still looking forward to the movie.

    Decided to watch the movie and go in viewing it as a tribute to the book and not a recreation of it.
