    This is one of the best books I've read in a decade. I'm really hoping they do this right.

    I found this fan made movie poster based on an old NES ad.

    I'm excited too. Loved the book, also very high on my list of favorite books I've read in the last 5-10 years. Interested to see what sort of changes they're going to need to make since there is no way they'll be able to get all of the licenses to make a movie exactly how the book was, but if done well, it could still be great.

    I might read the book again before the movie comes out.

    Sounds like an audio streamer. "The Ready Player model One from Benchmark"

    I'm hoping the teaser looks like it looks because there's not more final footage complete yet. It looks a bit like a CGI mess. I'm not ready to assume the worst yet. Its in good hands IMO.

    23 Chapters into the book, one film won't give this interesting novel any justice. Similar to Stranger Things, childhood flashbacks to the 80s have kept me interesting in the overall story. Highly detailed, regarding the environments, games, characters, one film cant do it.

    The new trailer definitely looks better. I'm still really excited for this one. I'll see it in theaters regardless.

    Well saw an early showing tonight for free with Noah in a Dolby Cinema.

    I have not read the book, but found ther movie to be a very fun ride. The look and sound was pretty cool. It is Spielberg and it can be emotionally manipulative a nd preachy but still quite good and liked the message.

    When does it open wide? I don't want to battle the fanboys so I'll probably go early as possible on Saturday or Sunday after it opens. No Thursday opening day midnight showing for me.

    Yeah we got to see an early showing for free in the local Dolby Cinema I guess it opens Friday the 28th this week.

    Noah had several friends that were very jealous that he got to see it a week and a half early.
