This new Ready Player One poster (and trailer) is pure eighties nostalgia


The eighties were the halcyon days of the spectacular, family-friendly blockbuster. And if you're of a certain vintage, those nostalgic memories are sure to come flooding back upon viewing this awesomely retro new poster for Ready Player One.

Movie colossus Steven Spielberg adapts Ernest Cline's dystopian novel the story of the virtual reality world known as the OASIS, and the fortune hidden within. Anchored by Tye Sheridan's treasure-hunting hero Wade Watts, the poster is clad in an air of 1980s classics like Tron. It also offers pride of place to Ben Mendelsohn's corporate baddie Nolan Sorrento, Simon Pegg's Odgen Morrow and Olivia Cooke's Art3mis.

Even so, it's the pop culture icons lurking at the bottom that steal it: Back to the Future's time-travelling DeLorean, Lara Croft, the Iron Giant and more. Are you geeking out right about now?

And the goodies don't stop there: here's the new trailer for Ready Player One, which is released on 29th March.
