THR: Ready Player One is tracking for a sluggish $35 million-plus debut over three-day weekend. [RDYP1]   Antibody on Mar 08, 09:40

Nooooooooooo! I want this to be a blockbuster so badly! (My favorite book) {nm}   Wilderness_Journey on Mar 08, 09:41

Hmm, I was worried about that. Our polling numbers have been weak and I thought, they can't be right, gave them basically no weight. {nm}   RollingThunder on Mar 08, 09:47

it just looks like a sprawling mess from the trailer {nm}   slipping jimmy on Mar 08, 09:48

Me too. I am about to finish the book myself. Loved it, and it's hard to believe with Spielberg at the helm this won't be huge.    tatoufan on Mar 08, 10:07

he hasn't had a big-budget hit really since War of the Worlds {nm}   slipping jimmy on Mar 08, 10:18

The heavy focus on Final Fantasy/Tron Legacy/Warcraft esque CGI sequences might be turning off audiences, that number points to GFB's only . {nm}   notfabio on Mar 08, 10:31

Maybe but GFBs are a big group and would include a lot of former gamers (now dads who will take their family).   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:11

I mMeant Olive Cook's character is important and in the book. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:13

But The Post, BFG, Bridge of Spies, Lincoln were not blockbuster films but they were all very good films and well received.   tatoufan on Mar 08, 10:36

his historical movies were at least about something. i don't know what this one is about other than nostalgia porn {nm}   slipping jimmy on Mar 08, 10:57

A nostalgic porn with a kid vs {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:17

A nostalgic porn with a kid vs the new world orish {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:18

Sorry. It's a nostalgia porn adventure film with a poor, geeky, loveable teenager vs the new world order for everything. Classic Spielberg. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:22

Jaws, E.T., Raiders, Jurassic Park, Close Encounters are classic Spielberg. none of them were about a geeky teen v. new world order {nm}   slipping jimmy on Mar 08, 11:39

True, maybe it's not classic SS, but to me it just seems like a perfect story for him. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:53

1st trailer awesome... 2nd trailer WTF is this?? Whoever cut the 2nd should be fired. {nm}   Baron_Darcon2017 on Mar 08, 10:27

Agreed, the second trailer is not as good as the first. It's confusing if the story is new to the viewer. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:32

In the end, it should help sell a lot of VR headsets and make VRChat more popular. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 08, 11:44

V: “Ready Player One is on pace to open to between $45 million to $55 million over its four-day opening weekend.   Antibody on Mar 08, 16:18

I'm not target audience, I'm sure, but imo book was almost unreadable and the trailers look like a pile of nonsense. {nm}   Bronzey on Mar 08, 17:18

Can anyone explain why tickets haven’t gone on sale yet?   MiyazakiFan on Mar 08, 18:17

I know I'm in the minority (and I grew up in the 80's), but the book was absolutely horrible. {nm}   Chondog on Mar 09, 05:07
