Steven Spielberg is no amateur when it comes to directing projects that both challenge him as a veteran filmmaker and push the medium to new boundaries. He has had dozens of success stories, in films that range across all genres and please all audiences.
His latest film, Ready Player One, looks like no exception. The film is set in a not-so-distant future, where people escape into virtual reality to explore their wildest dreams and imaginations.
The film is a novel adaptation and stars Tye Sheridan as a young kid that dives into this creative and wild world, which features cameos from The Iron Giant, Freddy Krueger and even Back to the Future‘s DeLorean. There’s enough Easter egg pop culture references to make even the grumpiest of video game and movie lovers smile.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how this film plays out, when it hits theaters next year.
