As an admitted nerd, and cyberpunk slut, I didn’t think I would ever be ashamed of my desire to live in the Metaverse. Whelp, here the fuck we are.
First trailer for Ready Player One is here! And! It’s…okay? Maybe it was my own reading of RPO, or maybe it’s just an early trailer, but the first look at the movie casts Cline’s source material in a far more dystopic, gritty light than I pictured when reading the novel. I definitely pictured a more bubbly, 1980s, Hughes-esque vibe. You know, a coming-of-age-with-positivity-despite-staggering-adversity type world.
RPO, a shameless masturbation of 1980s and early 90s culture, and fusillade of fan service, is getting a movie adaptation. It’s coming courtesy of Steven Spielberg, and if you’re wondering how the book is going to translate, here’s your first look.
Ben Mendelsohn is a great actor, though I don’t know if he is well known. However, soon, the public shall learn the power of The Mendelsohn. Not only is the dude in StarWarRogueOne – A WarStar Anthology tale, but the dude has also landed the villain role in RPO.
Ever since Steven Spielberg signed on to adapt Ready Player One its development has taken off like a mofuckah. The latest bit of news regarding the adaptation is the casting of Olivia Cooke. I am not familiar with Cooke, but I’m going to go ahead and trust Steven and his Alien-Filled Entourage with the casting choices.
The long-in-development adaptation of Ernie Cline’s Ready Player One finally has a release date.
