This one might not be on everyone’s radar, but it definitely should be! Somewhere within all-star director, Steven Spielberg’s busy schedule he has been able to crank out yet another seemingly masterfully crafted film. Ready Player One adapts the Ernest Cline novel by the same name. It seems that Warner Bros. is going all out on this flick bringing Spielberg himself out to talk up the movie before tonights SXSW premiere.
Those lucky enough to see the flick jumped on social media to give us their first thoughts. check out the Tweets below:
#ReadyPlayerOne is classic Steven Spielberg. It’s got the references, the ferocious effects and the great ‘80s soundtrack, sure, but also the charm, the heart, the humor and a fantastic Alan Silvestri score. I loved it & so did this #SXSW crowd. Be excited for it! pic.twitter.com/xwPOGwXDxd

I have sworn up and down for MONTHS #ReadyPlayerOne would suck.
It didn’t. It was great, it really was.

The premiere of #ReadyPlayerOne was probably the most inspirational experience of my life so far. From Steven Spielberg and the cast talking on stage to the audience to the movie itself. The whole thing was so magical and I’m so happy. I couldn’t ask for a better day.

Internet: #ReadyPlayerOne is going to be awful
Me: Why don’t we give Steven Spielberg, one of the best of all time, the benefit of the doubt.
Internet: No its going to be awful

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon. The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
