READY PLAYER ONE - IMAX® Trailer & Poster

Along with a new IMAX trailer for Steven Spielberg’s READY PLAYER ONE, comes a IMAX Poster -the film’s FIRST poster revealed, actually. And while I cannot relate to “loosing oneself in video games”, I can wholly relate to loosing, or taking refuge in TOYS to escape the mundanity of “real life” :) But then again, nothing could necessarily justify the elongated right-leg seen in the movie poster! Maybe they were paying “homage” to “Mr Fantastic” (of “Fantastic Four”) and his stretchy body-parts, no? Yes? Maybe-so?

"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."
