A little behind the time on this one, but I'm really digging it. Started the movie last night for intro. Just bought the Art of Ready Player One...

Anyone else into this? Did you read the novel? The concept art and fan art is amazing

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure "Ready Player One," based on Ernest Cline's bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon. 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 (Mark Rylance). 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 (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger. Spielberg directed the film from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The film was produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah; with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers. "Ready Player One" stars Tye Sheridan ("X-Men: Apocalypse," "Mud"), Olivia Cooke ("Me and Earl and the Dying Girl," "Bates Motel"), Ben Mendelsohn ("Rogue One – A Star Wars Story," "Bloodline") and T.J. Miller ("Deadpool," "Silicon Valley"), with Simon Pegg (the "Star Trek" movies, the "Mission: Impossible" movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance ("Bridge of Spies," upcoming "Dunkirk"). Behind the scenes, three-time Oscar winner Spielberg ("Schindler's List," "Saving Private Ryan") reunited his creative team from "Bridge of Spies," including Oscar-winning director of photography Janusz Kaminski ("Schindler's List," "Saving Private Ryan"), Oscar-winning production designer Adam Stockhausen ("The Grand Budapest Hotel"), Oscar-winning editor Michael Kahn ("Saving Private Ryan," "Raiders of the Lost Ark") and Sarah Broshar ("The Post"), and costume designer Kasia Walicka-Maimone ("Moonrise Kingdom"). The music is by Oscar-nominated composer Alan Silvestri (the "Back to the Future" films, "Forrest Gump"). Warner Bros. Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, and Amblin Production, a De Line Pictures Production, a Steven Spielberg Film, "Ready Player One." Slated for release on March 30, 2018, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.... MORE

Release date: March 29, 2018 (USA)

I had read the novel before the movie came out and I prefer the movie. The novel is good but there's an awful lot of coincidences in it. It's a great idea but not a great book, in my opinion. The movie, on the other hand, makes some changes to the novel that improved it a lot. The DeLorean is missing its Ghostbusters logo in the movie though and I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan so that was disappointing. But other than that, and the lack of Spielberg references in the movie, the movie is better in pretty much every way.

I'm usually like that too. I was wondering if the movie was better. With the characters it would seem the movie had to be better.

Never read the book. Watched the movie. Way too much going on. Couldn't make sense of half the pop culture references. Fantastic visuals and sound. Decent acting.

That's the beauty of it. You don't have to understand all the pop culture references. If you don't understand one, don't worry. There'll be another one along in a second. It's a movie that features the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the DeLorean time machine, Batman, Joker, Harley Quinn, The Arkham Knight, characters from Halo, the Overlook Hotel, Chucky, Mechagodzilla, King Kong, Mad Max's Interceptor, Prince's Purple Rain costume and the Firefly ship from Firefly/Serenity. Plus hundreds more. There's something for everybody.

Cyberpunk cities concept art feels like the 'Stacks' from this movie, just more 'urban' vs rural/trailerpark

In describing the Stacks, Steven Spielberg described it as "essentially a vertical trailer park".

The Stacks are a type of refugee shanty villages that were constructed on the outskirts of most major cities during the rise of the global energy crisis.

The Stacks are named due to how the dozens of trailers and similar mobile living quarters that make up the spaces are stacked on top of one another in "stacks", held together by metal beams, pipes and makeshift girders. They were created to save space, labor, and resources. This cheap construction caused the over crowded homes to become a breeding ground for theft, murder, molestation and other heinous activities.

The top level or "roof" of each stack is blanketed with a patchwork array of old solar panels that provided supplemental power to the units below. A bundle of hoses and corrugated tubing snake up and down the side of each stack, supplying water to each trailer and carrying away sewage (although not every Stack is reported to possess such luxuries). Very little sunlight make it to the bottom level (known as the "floor") and the ground between the stacks are clogged with abandoned cars and trucks that have to be cleared away by construction cranes before a new stack can be created.

Steven Spielberg on why the story of 'Ready Player One' matters over the special effects

Bill Goodykoontz, USA TODAY NETWORK Published 6:00 a.m. MT March 23, 2018 | Updated 1:48 p.m. MT March 28, 2018

It's the story, stupid.

Steven Spielberg is far too polite a person to put it in those terms, but that's certainly the refrain that rang through a recent lengthy interview with the director of "Ready Player One."

Calling Spielberg the director of "Ready Player One" is true, but hardly definitive. How about the director of "Jaws," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," "Schindler's List," "The Color Purple," "Minority Report," "Munich," "Lincoln," "The Post?" And that's just a handful of his credits.

Spielberg is the most successful movie director in history. His films have made more than $4 billion, nearly twice as much as the next director on the list (Michael Bay, believe it or not). Critics sometimes deride his films as sappy and sentimental, yet audiences clearly relate to his movies.

Things To Do app: Get the best in events, dining and travel right on your device

"Ready Player One" is based on Ernest Cline's novel, about a futuristic world in which a virtual-reality world called the Oasis is just that for downtrodden people — a place where they can become whomever or whatever they want and forget their troubles in a dystopian society. A teenager, Wade Watts, who goes by Parzival in the virtual world, winds up competing against a greedy corporation for control of the Oasis. Whoever solves puzzles and finds an Easter egg hidden deep inside the game wins everything.

With so much to talk about with Spielberg during a recent phone call — "Ready Player One" and everything else — how do you start?

By asking about the weather.

Question: You did a lot of growing up in Phoenix. Did you ever get used to summer here?

Answer: I did. I got very used to it. I made most of my movies during summer vacation, so I'd be out there in 135-degree direct sunlight with all my friends making my little movies out in the desert. I got very used to it. The only bad thing that happened was one time I got terribly dehydrated and ever since that moment where I kind of passed out, I learned how to drink water. A lot of water.

Q: In "Ready Player One" anything is possible for the characters — and by extension, for you. How are you not paralyzed by choices?

A: Well, because all of the choices, especially the nostalgia, were always in second position to telling a terrific story about a huge competition between corporate greed and all the disenfranchised gunters (those searching to find the Easter egg) just trying to make something of themselves. So it was a streamlined, straight-arrow story out the front windshield of this racing vehicle called Ready Player One, this race car called Ready Player One. And I was very, very concerned that the cultural references, I only wanted them to enhance the story, but not upstage it.

Q: It would be easy to overdo it. Audiences would probably like it.

A: This was the bonus material, all the Easter eggs that keep popping up until we get to have fun identifying or at least having our friends tell us that they recognize what we perhaps missed. But the main thing is to keep your eye on that story, because it's the story and the plot of "Ready Player One," and ... the characters that become a team to rival a huge, greedy corporation trying to monetize and take over the Oasis, that was everything to me. That was my main focus.

Q: Obviously you started making this a while ago. But in the wake of the shooting at the high school in Parkland, Florida, and the reaction of some of the survivors, the story of young people rising up resonates.

A: Long before the tragedy at Parkland, we wanted to tell a story about young people who, when they put their voices together, there's no way to shout them down.

Q: That's something that's interested you for a long time?

A: I've always been interested in heroes who don't even know that they're acting heroically.

Q: That happens with Parzival in the film. Something that starts out relatively small gets a lot bigger.

A: Yeah, absolutely, I love that. From the littlest acorns great trees grow. And Parzival, or Wade Watts, is just such an acorn. He's a lot like me when I was his age (laughs). He's certainly an encyclopedia of cultural trivia. But he also really identifies with James Halliday (who created the Oasis), his hero. Halliday himself doesn't know he's a hero. That's another thing that Halliday and Wade have in common.

The real-life Ready Player One: Block made from shipping containers like 'Stacks' in Spielberg film

A block of apartments has been fashioned from 140 shipping containers, looking like a scene from a Steven Spielberg sci-fi movie, in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The New York design studio, Lot-ek, say it is a 'response to the post-apartheid generation's desire to repopulate the city's downtown through new models of urban living.'

The containers are reminiscent of the 'stacks' in Spielberg's film Ready Player One.

The movie, set in a futuristic Columbus, Ohio, features containers stacked up in the slum area of the city.

I love sci-fi, and what it inspires

The Electric State by Simon Stålenhag - Kickstarter Video

In 1997, a runaway teenager and her robot travel west through an American landscape where the ruins of battle drones litter the countryside, along with the trash of a high-tech consumerist society addicted to a virtual-reality system. Simon Stålenhags art book The Electric State was released by Free League Publishing exclusively to the backers of the kickstarter campaign.
