Ready Player One Gets A New Movie Poster

There's a new trailer out for Steven Spielberg's film adaptation of Ready Player One, a pop-culture encyclopedia in narrative fiction form. Either way, Ready Player One is expected to set geek tongues wagging, what with its open embrace of gaming tropes and endless nods, winks and references. Hidden in the Oasis is a easter egg left by its creator that grants whoever finds it half a trillion dollars and control of the Oasis game. The Iron Giant, who appeared in the film's San Diego Comic-Con trailer, can be seen again here, and fans of the hit online shooter "Overwatch" will be surprised to find the game's most popular character, Tracer, in this trailer running into battle alongside Chun-Li from "Street Fighter".

The nostalgia factor is set on high in the new trailer for Ready Player One. Cline pointed out similarities to another Spielberg film. Seeing Spielberg direct this film is such a dream come true for every geek out there. You can watch the first official-trailer below.

Trade for Gordon may help M's land Japanese star
Gordon hit.308/.341/.375 in 158 games for the Marlins in 2017, although he has never played the outfield in the major leagues. He's under contract through 2020, earning $10.5 million this coming season, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020.

So how many Easter eggs did you catch in the Ready Player One trailer? With this in mind it would be reasonable to wonder whether Sheridan's leg in the newly released poster is just a bitter graphics artist getting one last laugh at Warner Bros. expense or actually a mysterious clue that hints at something else. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). The hero, a poverty-stricken teenager named Wade Watts (played by Tye Sheridan, who recently played young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse), has a more distorted and very blue OASIS avatar - which goes by "Parzival", his OASIS username - while the avatar of presumably Art3mis (Olivia Cooke from Bates Motel) resembles a red elf creature.
