Here’s What We’re Getting on the ‘Ready Player One’ 4K and Blu-Ray

One of the recent films we have a decidedly love-hate-love relationship with is Warner Bros.’s Ready Player One. Don’t get me wrong: for what the film is, it’s tremendously entertaining and well presented, and it certainly had a box office reception that reflected that. We’ve been waiting for news about the official home release of the flick, […]

Love or hate it, there is no denying the hold Ready Player One took on filmgoers.  Fans of the source material from Ernie Cline‘s Ready Player One book were torn, but the box office reflected that the average film goer wasn’t bothered.

WonderCon in Anaheim has steadily increased its major studio presence over the past few years, and in 2018 that meant Warner Bros.

The film screened back at South by Southwest (SXSW) and was pretty much the main movie discussed […]

Yeah so I personally am more than a little excited for Ready Player One, as you may have gathered from the numerous pieces I’ve done covering the ramp up to tonight’s premiere at South By Southwest (SXSW), and world opening on March 29th.

Ready Player One: The High Five Announce Hot Topic PopUp Experience, New Footage

Ready Player One really waited ’til the last minute to start to drum up more public… something… ahead of the Warner Bros. film being released next month.

Just a little bit ago, a brand-new poster for the upcoming Warner Bros. film Ready Player One was released, featuring a much-improved visage of the general feel of the flick.

This morning fans of Ready Player One were treated to a brand-new trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation by Steven Spielberg of Ernest Cline‘s novel for Warner Bros.
