Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One has a release date, and we’ll see it in time for Christmas 2017.
Specifically the movie will release on December 15, 2017. While some may feel a summer release is more fitting for the type of story it is, you know Spielberg will nail the sentimentality that the ending of the story brings. He really is the perfect person to direct the movie that’s a gushing love letter to his output of the 80s, and as someone who has read the book numerous times I can’t wait to see it.
With Lucasfilm moving Star Wars Episode VIII back to the traditional May release date in 2017, the only major competition Ready Player One will face is one of the Avatar sequels. But since it seems like no one even remembers, or cares about, Avatar it probably won’t be such a big deal by then.
