I guess it was only a couple of weeks ago that I showcased some posters from the upcoming film “Ready Player One”. Those were “Homage Posters” and quite a bit of fun so if you missed those please click HERE so you can see them. These new posters for the film reveal the various Avatars that the cast becomes when in the RPO realm so check them out below right after the Official Theatrical poster. Enjoy.
The Premise: In the year 2045, much of Earth’s population centers have become slum-like cities due to overpopulation, pollution, corruption, and climate change. To escape their desolation, people engage in the virtual reality world of the OASIS (Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation), where they can engage in numerous activities for work, education, and entertainment.
Wade Watts is a teenager from Columbus, Ohio who frequents the OASIS and attempts to win “Anorak’s Quest”, a game created by the recently-deceased creator of the OASIS, James Halliday, in search of its Easter Egg. The winner is to be granted full ownership of the OASIS and Halliday’s $500 billion fortune. While Wade works with several friends from the OASIS to discover Anorak’s treasure, Innovative Online Industries (IOI), an evil corporation lead by CEO Nolan Sorrento, employs a number of Sixers to try to discover the treasure first and seize control of OASIS for themselves.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already noted, this property eludes me for the time being but I have enjoyed the posters up above and those that I shared with the homage ones that I linked you to. The more I see about this one, the more I am getting interested in it since so many friends have said its a wonderful read. Maybe I will get this tome for my Kindle since I’ve been using that a lot these days. Okay, now its back to a whole pile of other things to do. See you next time.
