New READY PLAYER ONE Poster Confirms One of My Fears

The new Ready Player One poster is gorgeous, but it confirmed a worry that I had since the adaptation was first announced. Based on the poster, they weren’t able to get all the licenses referenced in the novel including some that relate directly to the climax of the book. With any adaptation of a story, there will be changes or omissions and licensing that many different properties would have been impossible for pretty much any studio. Don’t get me wrong, I still think this movie is going to kick ass, but I was really hoping to see Ultraman fight Mechagodzilla on the big screen and not that Skeletor lookalike and the Iron Giant. I must admit that the Iron Giant is a rad replacement though.
