Ready Player One's First Teaser Is Filled With Pop Culture Icons

Inside his, Wade suits up in his Oasis gear, ready to dive into the game. There are flashes of the different environments: a futuristic dance party, Wade hanging out with the Iron Giant ("The Iron Giant is a real player in this story", Spielberg said), Wade racing around in the DeLorean from Back to the Future as he avoids wrecking balls, and fighting Freddie Kruger.

Helmed by Steven Spielberg and starring the likes of Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance and Simon Pegg, this sci-fi adventure film looks set to be another massive hit for the legendary director.
