It’s fair to say that over the past couple of weeks there has been some unfair negativity surrounding Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’, most of it stemming from the recent posters that paid homage to classic films which weren’t well received by some people.
Fans of Ernest Cline’s book are also worried about how well the material will have been adapted, with some big changes already noticeable in the trailers. Worried fans should now put their doubts aside if the first reactions are anything to go by! Yesterday’s (not-so) secret screening at SXSW went down a storm with it’s audience (if their tweets are anything to go by), and the film and it’s director received a standing ovation.
If we weren’t already excited over here at JUMPCUT, then we certainly are now after reading these!
