Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Adaptation Release Pushed to 2018
Briefly: This is exactly what we expected, and it's good to see Warner Bros making a smart move. WB has shifted and pushed back the release date of Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One adaptation from its original slot in December 2017 to spring of 2018 - specifically March 30th, 2018. This is mainly because Disney recently changed the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII (being directed by Rian Johnson) back to December 15th, 2017 (from May) - which was the exact same day that Ready Player One was originally set for release. It's always hard to tell whether Spielberg will make his release anyway, but this is just a big sigh of relief because there would be no point in seeing WB and Disney go head-to-head with these two massive sci-fi / fan-oriented projects. I'm excited to see both Star Wars and Ready Player One - three months apart.

I thought the book kinda sucked so not too upset about this, minus the fact that I always love a good Spielberg.

Uh-oh! I am not so sure who this will pan out. I know people love the book, but I am not so sure how a live action adaptation will transfer.

I hope they don't eff it up man. It was a fun read, but so many licenses to obtain to bring it to fruition...seems like a monumental task.

As long as it's cast well, and Spielberg can bring that 80's vibe.....I am very in

Couldn't finish the book -- hopefully Stephen can get a decent screenplay written and with his skills can turn this into something worth watching, although I'm not holding my breath. Starting to feel a bit like Robopocalypse....
