Ready Player One’ Posters Hijack All-Time-Favorite Movies From The Past

Imitation is the best form of flattery, they say, and Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One appears to play by this rule. Based on Ernest Cline’s namesake bestseller, it’s set in an immersive virtual reality world in 2045 called the ‘OASIS’. Anything is possible here, even replicas of pop culture universes.

Spielberg’s reputation in the filmmaking business aptly calls for a throwback to well-loved blockbusters. Ready Player One’s new posters cleverly pay homage to classics, and sees avatar characters from the ‘OASIS’ standing in formation to mimic artworks from films like BeetlejuiceThe Goonies, and The Matrix.

The recreations aren’t just inspired by character poses; they even take on the retro posters’ typography and remix their taglines so that they’re relevant with the Ready Player One plot.

According to Instagram user Jeff Avery, a compilation of the artworks can be seen at Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. View some comparisons between them and their predecessors, and check out more on /Film, who has obtained the full collection.
