By now you’ve seen all the trailers and eagle-eyed viewers have pointed out all the cool pop culture characters in the extended clips. Batman, Superman, The Iron Giant, Chucky, Freddy Kreuger, Joker, Harley Quinn, Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft, Street Fighter’s Chun-Li, Battletoads, Gundam, King Kong and Mach 5 from Speed Racer are just a few. If you’re a gamer or a fan of all things geek, Ready Player One should already be high on your must-see list of 2018. Here is your chance to win double tickets to an early screening of Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated film in Cape Town (Cavendish).
Steven Spielberg has turned Ernest Cline’s bestselling novel into a virtual-reality fanboy geek-out. Thankfully, the first reactions to the new film have been very positive:
Went into READY PLAYER ONE skeptical as hell. Came out largely as a joyous convert. I have a handful of issues with the structure and characters, but it improves on the book in important ways, the action is riveting, and I really bought the humor. #readyplayerone

#ReadyPlayerOne is classic Spielberg fun! What a blast, can't wait to see it again. Rewards repeat viewings. Tons of great references, visuals and heart. So kick ass it blew the speakers!

READY PLAYER ONE feels like Spielberg watched a ton of Luc Besson movies and decided to outdo them. In terms of pure spectacle, it’s the most astonishing thing he’s done. Never underestimate Steve. #SXSW
