Ready Player One: Your Ultimate Guide To All The Pop-Culture References

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Ready Player One.

Steven Spielberg‘s futuristic adventure Ready Player One isn’t just an FX-heavy blockbuster. It’s also a visual encyclopedia collecting several decades’ worth of geek culture. 

Adapted from the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, the film takes place in the far-off year of 2045, when humans like hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) spend all their time in a digital virtual-reality realm called the OASIS. Within this world, they can freely indulge their obsessions with the movies, TV shows, and video games of the distant past … the “distant past” in this case being primarily the ’80s and ’90s. Almost every frame of Ready Player One is filled with one (and often many more) references to our collective pop-culture history. 

The Yahoo Entertainment team put together this list of the 80-plus references they spotted in Ready Player One. Check out the list HERE.

Ready Player One Book Sequel In The Works

In the wake of Warner Bros. Pictures releasing the second trailer for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming ’80s nostalgia odyssey Ready Player One, author Ernest Cline has confirmed during a trailer launch event that he is writing a Ready Player One book sequel with Steven Spielberg’s input! Those that have read the first book know that while that story gets tied up nicely, there’s certainly more directions Cline can go with the characters.

“It is true,” Cline confirmed of the sequel. “I can’t talk about it too much, but I can tell you there’s no better inspiration for a writer returning to a world they’ve already worked on when they’re seeing Steven Spielberg bringing that world to life. To get to talk to him and get his input, one of the greatest storytellers of all-time, and a storyteller that had a direct influence on my first novel, ‘Ready Player One.’ Wade carries a grail diary through the whole story to collect his clues about the Easter Egg hunt, and that’s because of ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.’ It would have been a different story if I had not grown up watching Steven’s movies. So to get to not only collaborate with him to bring the first story to life but to bounce ideas off of him for the sequel is the most gratifying thing that’s ever happened to me in my life.”
