For those who haven't read the book, the story takes place in a future where resources are low and everyone pretty much spends their time in a virtual reality game called the Oasis.

The Stacks in the movie look just how they were described in the book!

Our hero, Wade Watts, is on the hunt for a hidden easter egg in the game that—legend has it—leads to a huge fortune.

Pop culture references from the 20th century are strewn throughout, in part because the creator of the Oasis was obsessed with it.

But the trailer had some surprises, even for die-hard fans of the book. Like this Iron Giant appearance!

Or what looks to be Freddy Krueger and Duke Nukem:

It looks like the movie will have a TON of pop culture references from the 80s and 90s, way more than what the book had.

If it belongs to Amblin Entertainment or Warner Bros., keep an eye out for it. There's the DeLorean from Back to the Future!

Ready Player One comes out in 2018, and we are READY.
