Did you catch these Easter eggs?
Warner Bros. dropped a vintage-style poster Tuesday for Ready Player One, director Steven Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of Ernest Cline’s bestseller.
Like its geek-friendly, pop culture reference-laded namesake, the movie version of Ready Player One will be chock full of Easter eggs for movie buffs, gamers, and ’80s aficionados to enjoy. 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.
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.
Check out the slideshow below to see what we discerned from the new poster:
It’s game on when Ready Player One — starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Mark Rylance, and Simon Pegg — hits theaters March 29.
