READY PLAYER ONE Recreates 11 Classic Film Posters

If we’ve learned one thing from the internet’s reactions to teasers for Ready Player One it’s that the movie’s success depends on how it utilizes its many (many) pop culture Easter eggs. If done right they could end up creating an obsessively fun hunt for film-goers, but if handled clumsily it could have a worst landing than Humpty Dumpty. But no matter how you have felt about the trailers so far, we doubt anyone will find much fault with the new perfect posters for the movie, because they pay homage to some of our favorite films of all time.

The posters replace iconic characters from classic films with Ready Player One‘s OASIS avatars. These haven’t formally been released by Warner Bros. yet, they have only been spotted by fans out in the real world, making them maybe the best form of nostalgia for the film yet. Thanks to Imgur user RahulBhatia10 though we can see them now. They recreate famous movie posters from The Matrix, The Goonies, Lost Boys, The Iron Giant, Rambo, Risky Business, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Bullitt, The Breakfast Club, and Beetlejuice.

Ready Player One (Homage Posters)

At this point we all know far too well that nostalgia can just as easily sink a movie or TV show as make us fall in love with it, which is likely why some people have been skeptical about how Steven Spielberg will manage to successfully use so many reference in the movie. At some point they go from homage to lame. However if they end up feeling anywhere near as good as these posters look, this will be one memorable Easter egg hunt.

Which one of these posters is your favorite? What other classic poster would you love to see them recreate? Tell us in the comments below.
