Following its March release and taking in over $582 million at the global box office, Warner Bros. Pictures is slated to drop the home release of Ready Player One later this month.
As usual, the Blu-Ray/DVD release comes pack with tons of bonus materials that fans should enjoy!
First, here’s a brief about the movie, if you’ve yet to see it. The film is based on the Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which is set in 2045, where the world is on the brink of choas and the world’s economy is largely credited to a expansive virtual reality universe called the OASIS. The world’s creator has died and left behind a digital Easter egg within the universe, and anyone who finds it will own the entire company.
The home release will feature a number of featurettes, which will play into Ready Player One’s video game inspiration. We don’t have specifics about the bonus content, but from the titles, we assume that we will see explorations of the film’s use of special effects and sound design.ALSO SEE: Lena Waithe Discusses Gamer Memories, “Ready Player One” Movie

We hope Steven Spielberg is featured, with some commentary about the film, how it was made and more, though it doesn’t make mention of him.
