Spielberg’s up to something, and I like it.
If the initial trailers for Ready Player One (here and here) were designed to tap into our sense of nostalgia wrapped up in futuristic sci-fi eye candy, then this new 2-minute cut is meant to show us that it’s actually about something, thematically and emotionally. Previous teasers were cool, but this one gave me chills (the hypnotic “Pure Imagination” cover sure helped). And it’s almost here.
Ready Player One, based on the best-selling phenomenon by Ernest Cline, hits theaters on March 29, 2018.
