Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One opened up the highly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures panel on Saturday to a hyped up crowd. Spielberg took the stage with book author Ernest Cline, co-screenwriter Zak Penn and some of the cast.
With them they brought the first teaser trailer for the film and it totally slayed! Expect to see tons of 80s callbacks such as Iron Giant, DeLorean Time Machine, Akira motorcycle, and Freddy Krueger in the film about virtual reality.
Here is the official IMDB synopsis for the film:
When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
Watch the trailer below!
It’s safe to say the crowd loved it too, judging by some of the initial tweets!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
