It used to be that you HAD to see certain movies in the theater. The new Dunkirk might be one of those movies. Director Christopher Nolan has an impressive track record. (Inception, Batman movies.) And the new Star Wars franchise and some action hero movies bring big audiences to the theater but every year, ticket prices get more expensive and fewer people go.
Well, Ready Player One is Steven Spielberg‘s intro back into the sci-fi genre after over a decade away. Based on the Ernest Cline novel, the movie casts Tye Sheridan as a virtual-reality player who’s intent on finding a hidden fortune left by game guru Mark Rylance. Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and T.J. Miller costar in the movie, which will be out in March of 2018.
Audiences at ComicCon lost their shit over this trailer. Spielberg + virtual-reality. That might do it, if this trailer is any indication. I’m there.
