New Ready Player One Poster is Here, and It’s So ’80s

Fans of Ernest Cline‘s book Ready Player One have been sitting on the edge of their seats for the movie adaptation. It has one of the greatest directors of all time sitting behind the wheel, and the more footage that gets released the more hype they all get. They haven’t had as much luck in the poster department, with the first one coming under fire for the freakishly long leg of the character. This new poster is much better and looks like it was ripped from the 1980s. It looks like a Drew Struzan poster, only with real people instead of art — which is exactly the look this movie should be going for.
