I'm still flabbergasted that this movie is actually real and is coming out soon. Ready Player One directed by Steven Spielberg is so batshit crazy as a concept that it's either going to be a massive train wreck or something amazing. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground on this one.


Today they debuted a new poster that is very much in the Spielberg/Struzan style although I don't think the legendary Drew Struzan actually did this one. It's good enough to be one of his, but I don't see his distinct signature anywhere.


UPDATE: This is the work of the great Paul Shipper whose work you might know from those awesome Scream and Shout Factory Special Edition Blu-Rays. For years he's been the heir apparent to Drew Struzan and I guess he's finally arrived if I even questioned whether or not this piece was a Struzan! Check out more of his work here!

That's a way better poster than the previous one, which features star Tye Sheridan with a Go-Go Gadget extra long leg that you can't unsee once you see it.

I still have no idea if this is going to be great or awful, but if there's one thing I've learned in all my years being a movie geek it's that you never, ever bet against Steven Spielberg.
