The Ready Player One Trailer Is A Smorgasbord Of Pop Culture References

Pictures' San Diego Comic-Con 2017 panel, to the delight of everyone who fell in love with Ernest Cline's best-selling 2011 novel of the same name. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS.

Back to the Future DeLorean's racing against Tron Lightcycles, the A-Team van, and Mad Max's Interceptor, with appearances from the Iron Giant, Freddy Krueger, Deadpool holding hands with Harley Quinn, and countless others, the trailer asks "Are you ready?". 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.

"It was like the most unbelievable flash-forward and flash-back at the same time", Spielberg said. He lives in the Stacks and calls his generation 'the missing millions.' Throughout the years, there has been one thing that he keeps close to his heart, and that's the world of OASIS, a virtual world where you can be anyone, do anything and live how you see fit.

He added that he thought they were going to need "a younger director" to helm the project, despite his own movies featuring heavily. But that isn't to say I don't get excited when he makes new stuff.

SNL Says Goodbye to Spicey with Melissa McCarthy's Best Moments

Steven Spielberg has predicted that this universe that he has created for the film is "the future that awaits us, whether we like it or not".

Citizens can live an entire virtual-reality life inside the OASIS, complete with schools and currency.

"Well, they let me get away with putting some of my own movies in this movie", Spielberg said, "and that could be identified as some sort of grand act of larceny or vanity or something like that, because so numerous iconic moments that were chosen by Ernie happened in the era of the '80s that I was very much involved in".

Ready Player One comes out in March 2018.
