Break Free! Ready Player One is an upcoming sci-fi film directed by Steven Spielberg. It is based on the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline of the same name. The novel and film are full of 1080’s and 1990’s pop culture references. The film is set in a dystopian future in the 2040’s where the world is facing social problems, environmental, and economic stagnation. In order to escape the harsh reality of life, people turn to the OASIS, a virtual reality simulator. Players enter the OASIS  through visors and haptic technology such as gloves. The story follows a young man named Wade Watts who enters the virtual world five years after the creator of OASIS, James Halliday, passed away. After Halliday passed away, his will was made public. His will stated that he had left an Easter egg inside the OASIS, and the first person to find it would inherit his entire fortune. While playing, Wade discovers one of the three keys pointing to the treasure, and thus his misadventures begin. The movie trailer has an abundance of pop culture references.

The Ready Player One Trailer includes appearances of Harley Quinn, Deadpool (or Deathstroke), Iron Giant, The DeLorean from Back to the Future, Freddy Kruger, Duke Nukem, Lara Croft, Dizzy from Gears of War, Christine (The car from the 1983 film Christine), a motor bike that looks like its from Tron with the lights around the wheels (complete with an Atari logo on it) but it is styled more like the bike from the 1988 sci-fi film Akira, the van from The A-Team, the Interceptor from Mad Max, the monster truck known as Bigfoot, the F1 Machine from the video game Rad Racer, and so many more.
