* Ready Player One is a #1 hit in theaters
* Epic action flick takes a deep dive into pop culture nostalgia
* Great gift ideas for fans of the film (and book)
It’s official: Ready Player One is a hit. Steven Spielberg’s ode to retro nostalgia opened last week (to glowing reviews, we might add), and gamer geeks the country over are already taking to the web to list all the pop culture references throughout the film. With tons of Easter eggs hidden in almost every scene, this action film offers a host of hidden gems for fans to discover.
If you have yet to watch the film, Fandango is currently running a promotion that gets you a free exclusive poster with every ticket purchase. Check showtimes and theaters and claim your offer here.
If you liked the movie, are a fan of the original book or just eager to learn more about the beloved series, you’ll want to check out these awesome Oasis-inspired gift ideas.

2. Ready Player One IOI Notebook

3. Ready Player One 3D Lenticular Coasters
This nostalgically rad lenticular coaster set features four different movie designs (Parzival, Art3mis, Aech, the High Five), and comes with the Ready Player One logo on the back of each. The smart 3D design really helps the logos pop.
4. Iron Giant Vinyl Vinimates Figure – Exclusive
