Ready Player One

Warner Bros. has been revitalizing itself this year with fan-favorite titles like The Lego Batman Movie, Kong: Skull Island and Wonder Woman. What does the studio have in store for the future? We found out at its Comic-Con panel today.

Ready Player One

Ernest Cline's science fiction novel, suffused with pop-culture references, became an instant sensation when it was published in 2011. Screen rights were sold even before the book was published, so to call the movie adaptation highly anticipated is an accurate description.

In San Diego, director Steven Spielberg took the stage first.


The first trailer was screened. Watch it below.



A motion title treatment was also revealed.


Spielberg acknowledged a big influence on the movie.

Ready Player One, starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen and Ben Mendelsohn, will open in theaters on March 30, 2018.


Blade Runner 2049

A hologram of Jared Leto opened the next portion of the panel.

A range of titles were first displayed, including The Flash: Flashpoint, Suicide Squad 2, The Batman and Wonder Woman 2, before a big new star appeared.
