People’s shocked reactions to the visual super mess that is “Ready Player One,” are honestly, to me, a little baffling. After years and years of untold nostalgia style revisiting — new Star Wars movies, riffs on the 80’s in Robot Chicken and Rick and Morty, and a Blade Runner movie where a new Blade Runner meets and old Blade Runner — we can’t be too shocked that a movie that is all nostalgia such as “Ready Player One” exists. Although I’ll be honest — this batch of posters is really, really a new step in just… pure badness. We’re looking at posters that are fewer homages, and much more bad photoshops of the z grade looking video game characters put into movies we enjoy a lot more than this one.
Blade Runner, Breakfast Club, The Labyrinth, Rambo, Beetlejuice, Back to the Future — all absolutely inexplicable messes. Check them out below! All images courtesy of SlashFilm.
What do you think? Will this weirdness be enough to stop people from watching it, or are we all about to be toppled silly by the unholy power of Spielberg? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
