Nostalgia is at the Heart of these Fan-Made Posters for ‘Ready Player One’

Ernie Cline’s best-seller Ready Player One is set to hit the big screen at the end of this month thanks to Steven Spielberg, and personally, I’m pretty excited. The internet, however, hasn’t been so kind to the film, with many people taking issue with the vast amount of fandom inspired references shown in the trailers so far, particularly from Amblin products.

I think it’s safe to say the movie’s success depends on how it utilizes its many pop culture references. If done right they could end up creating a future cult hit in which fan obsessively hunt for the many, many Easter eggs we are bound to get, but of course, if handled clumsily it could be a giant mess. But no matter how you feel about the trailers so far, we doubt anyone will find much fault with the following fan-made posters which pay homage to some of our favorite films of all time including The Matrix, The Goonies, Lost Boys, The Iron Giant, Rambo, Risky Business, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Bullitt, The Breakfast Club, and Beetlejuice to name a few.

Let us know which one of these posters is your favourite and what other classic posters you would like to see recreated.
