‘Ready Player One’ Prep, 80s-Style
A recent MoviePilot article shared 6 classic 80s films that will help prepare those getting ready for Ready Player One when it hits theaters in March. Each of these films are undeniably some of the most popular films of the decade.
“The overwhelming number of TV shows, movies, video games and music referenced in Ready Player One covers decades,” according to MoviePilot.
“But the film’s real heart is in the ’80s. To get ready for the film’s release, we’ve gathered all the ’80s movies that are essential to the book’s story – these are the films you need to see to get you prepared for Ready Player One.”
The six films included: The Goonies, Back to the Future, WarGames, TRON, Ladyhawke and Blade Runner. However, the publication did state that there are countless other influences that run rampant throughout the film.
“To be fair, there are hundreds of references to films in the book, so, not all of them will make it to the movie,” according to the report.
“These six titles serve as a good foundation to get you ready for the film, but they are only the tip of the iceberg.”
