‘Ready Player One’ was an awesome movie experience–in 2D and 3D–visualized for the silver screen by legendary director Steven Spielberg from the literary imagination of Spielbergian author Ernest Cline. And the critical success, as well as the box office success, naturally sparks the question:
Will there be a ‘Ready Player Two’ film?
The comprehensive success of the film supports the notion of a sequel. Yes. But it’s the Oasis and what this wildly imaginative virtual world has become since the events of the first film or book (insert your storytelling preference here) that really justifies the necessity for an IMAX-sized sequel.
‘Ready Player Two’ with a bonanza of nineties pop-culture references?
The virtual world needs the Carlton dance and Kelly Kapowski.
You’re not seeing things:
Steven Spielberg is now a hologram.
Part of the story in Ready Player One is the exploration of the line between reality and virtual reality (VR) in society in 2045, centered in Columbus, Ohio. Rest assured that this blog won’t just reveal spoilers for film and TV without a bold, unmistakable disclaimer. For this specific blog post, have no worries as there are no film or story spoilers here.
Having said that, the special hologram version of Mr. Spielberg is the latest spotlight of the continued blurring of lines between reality and virtual reality that’s existed in various forms for some time now. This cool tech in the video above–also utilized in the original Star Wars trilogy from back in the ’70s and ’80s with Princess Leia–is an example of VR that can live harmlessly in reality.
points coins would’ve been given to Steven Spielberg and the team at IMAX if they could’ve created and then broadcasted the beloved storyteller’s avatar that would live in the Oasis.
BTW – If you have not seen Ready Player One directed by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg in theaters on the biggest screen possible, then you should probably get on that ASAP with IMAX.
It’s time to put a new twist on Monday with some imagination…
Ready. Set. Go see Ready Player One!
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
Friday is finally here.
The only thing missing is a flashback. And with a certain low-budget, independent film now in theaters, it seems fitting to feature a movie trailer about a story that takes place in the future, yet is simultaneously defined by the past.
Ready Player One is now playing in movie theaters.
P.S. Steven Spielberg has done it again!
