Are you ready for Ready Player One?

Comic-Con just wrapped up and fan girls and boys around the world are still processing all the new goodies that debuted at the con.  Chief among the sneak peeks was the official trailer for Ready Player One, the movie adaptation of Ernest Cline's 2011 novel/love letter to 80's pop culture.

If you loved Ready Player One the trailer does not disappoint.  If you also love the band Rush then you will be VERY pleased with the trailer.  Below the clip of the trailer you'll find a list of titles that are just perfect for wanna be residents of the OASIS.

If you haven't yet read Ready Player One you still have time to read the novel before the movie hits theaters.  The Steven Spielberg directed movie is set for release in 2018.

Welcome to the OASIS: A list for Ready Player One fans

As heavy with tech references as Ready Player One is with gaming references.






I know what you are thinking - an Adam Sandler movie, come on! Yes, this is not an Oscar caliber stuff, but hey, it does star Peter Dinklage.








If you liked Wade's voice you'll love Mark Watney's narration in The Martian.


If you like Wade's fight against IOI for the soul of the OASIS, try William Gibson's classic.

If you like Wade's relationship with his friends you'll like this movie. It doesn't hurt that it is also J.J. Abrams tribute to Spielbergian film-making.

Cline's follow up to Ready Player One, but not a sequel. Think The Last Star Fighter meets WarGames meets Contact.
