The Iron Giant, the infamous Delorean, and probably a billion more references we either missed or later trailers will reveal. But it sure looks like Spielberg is attempting to elevate SFX cinema to a new level with this one.
“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.”
Oh sweet! We just noticed that the guys at IGN spotted no less than 16 Easter Eggs.
And BY THE WAY. Did you catch that second Thor Ragnarok trailer? Well, you did now. The 80’s have been revived. Good stuff. Like, the only super hero movie we’re actually looking forward to.
