Movie Homage Posters

On March 6th, 2018, a new series of posters for Ready Player One were released. In this case, the posters were designed to pay homage to famous movie posters that are associated with blockbuster entertainment from the 80s and 90s but using characters and imagery from Ready Player One. These include such films as The Matrix, Blade Runner and The Breakfast Club (examples below, respectively).[10]
