Ready Player One is out in theaters, and admirers are basking in all of its easter egg celebrity aloof in time for the appropriately timed three-day weekend. While Steven Spielberg was able to animate a artistic atom into the blur that actomed it to angle on added than abandoned authentic nostalgia, there is no abstinent that the absolute angle of Ernest Cline’s atypical and the consecutive Spielberg blockbuster is its affluence of cine references, video bold easter eggs, and pop ability mages to all things ‘80s (and in the film’s case, ‘90s too). The blur ability be set in 2045, but it’s acceptable to apperceive that the approaching is aloof as bedeviled with Gen-X and Millennial ability as we are today!
In that vein, we actuality at Den of Beatnik will attack the fool’s ignment of aculation every distinct nod, sutout, and blithesome beam to alarmist ability that has been blimp into the absolute seams of this unapologetically aberrant cine (*NOTE: Cine and not the book). Granted it will be about absurd to get them all in the aboriginal p, so if you apprehension that we absent anything, let us apperceive in the comments area below, or bawl at me on Twitter, and we’ll advance correct.
Witut added ado, imilate the advertence guide! Also, aloof a head’s up, actomed the sprawling attributes of the film, we are aculation the easter eggs by mediums, characters, and added approximate separations that will advance to some overlap, but will pefully accomplish this easier for you to abstract (especially if you’re attractive for article in particular). Now get out your amber bunnies, because we’re about to accept an easter egg t!
- In the aperture montage of what you can do in the OASIS, the aboriginal absolute admiration appears to be Batman aggressive Mount Everest. But not aloof any Batman… it’s Michael Keaton’s Batman from the Tim Burton archetypal of 1989!

- During the aperture montage, amid the avatars bushing up the OASIS aperture terminals Z traverses is the aboriginal RoboCop from 1987.
- Additionally during this sequence, commenter David Thiel spotted the Cyclops from Ray Harryhausen's The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958).
- Aback we accommodated Aech on Planet Doom, he* is apparent announcement Freedy Krueger into amplitude brand coins. To be specific the Freddy Krueger aboriginal played by Robert Englund in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
*(We shall afterward accredit to Aech in the OASIS as “he,” and in the absolute apple as “she,” as the appearance seems to appee to be approached in both realities.)
- Additionally apparent accepting gutted on Planet Doom is a cameoing avatar as Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies.
- Aback James Halliday and Ogden Morrow are alien via anamnesis in a columnist conference, the film’s soundtrack plays Tears for Fear’s “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” which was memorably acclimated in the TV cine Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999), which for Apple cultists and computer belief junkies is the adopted biopic on Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Bill Gates. This is absurd to be a accompaniment as a bi-weekly abridgement in Wade’s van asks if Halliday is “Bigger Than Jobs?”
- Added appropriately for the era this cine evokes, it was acclimated acutely in 1985's Absolute Genius starring Val Kilmer.
- Not abandoned is Halliday’s basic eyes of his burial in a Brilliant Trek themed church, but his casket is absolutely the exact aloft one (complete with abate markings) that Spock is jettisoned into abeyance in from Brilliant Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). Altugh personally, we were sad the blur did not charm the novel’s adaptation of this scene, in which Halliday presides over his own burial (both as anatomy and parishioner) from a agenda amut of the set of Heathers (1988). A adolescent Winona Ryder and Christian Slater were additionally in attendance.
- Halliday’s OASIS alter-ego Anorak looks uely wizard-y, like Merlin or Gandalf. However, the way the blur animates his abounding atramentous apparel in the blur seems carefully evocative of w Don Bluth drew such apparel on Nicodemus in The Secret of NIMH (1982). It suld be acclaimed Bluth and Spielberg afterwards partnered for An American Tail (1986) and The Land Afore Time (1988).
- Parzival’s agent of best is acutely Marty McFly’s DeLorean from Aback to the Future, admitting it has been retrofitted to accommodate the red-light barbecue scanner from Knight Rider (1982). In the book, it additionally has the Gstbusters (1984) attribute spray-painted on the door, but alas Sony allegation not accept capital to contribute. This is additionally the sole BTTF reference in this area (just so you apperceive we aren't crazy!). For the rest, amuse annal bottomward to the Back to the Future subsection.
- As if you bare to be told, that is the queen Tyrannosaurus Rex from Spielberg’s absolute own Juric Park disturbing up the track.

Cooper (the half-crazed charlatan w uced the 1933 masterpiece), the Kong architecture walks on his duke and best resembles Peter Jackson’s Kong from the 2005 remake. Spielberg teamed with Jackson for 2011’s The Adventures of Tintin.
- Additionally on the t clue is a neon, diized argent cup, which is a replica of the silvercup acclimated at the end of the aboriginal Highlander blur from 1986. This was brought to our absorption by commenter Chris Procter. Additionally fun fact, in the book, Art3mis' admired blur is Highlander.
- Additionally during the race, we aculate that the OASIS’ New York cine amphitheater is screening Jack Slater III, which is the activity cine franchise-within-an-action-movie activate axial Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Activity Hero (1993).

- Aback we are alien to Aech’s worksp, we are actomed a aberrant afflict of references. And the cine stuff, alone, includes the Iron Behemothic (obviously); the U.S.S. Sulaco bead address from James Cameron's Aliens; the Eagle 5 amplitude RV from Space (1987); an ED-209 from RoboCop; the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986); and the Extravehicular Activity Pod from 2001: A Amplitude Odyssey (1968).
- The XI clothing commercials addictive Wade Watts in the Stacks feels like a subtler answer of the backbreaking commercialization of Coke and Eastern business in Ridley Scott’s Brand Runner (1982).
- Not absolutely a reference, but Ralph Ineson is his absolute own easter egg for anyone w saw 2016’s adept The Witch. Seriously, Hollywood appoint this man more, and if you’ve apparent The Witch, see it again!
- In Halliday’s agenda amut of a anamnesis about himself and Og, he leaves a mive adumbration about activity “backward as fast as you can, absolutely put the pedal to the brand like Bill and Ted.” This is acutely a best gnarly advertence to the timey-wimey Bill & Ted’s Excellent Chance (1989).
- Aloft advertent the Copper Key, Anorak/Halliday refers to Z as “padawan.” This is a nod to w Jedi accredit to apprentices in the Brilliant Wars prequel trilogy. See George, at atomic Steven isn’t blank them!
- The Holy Hand Grenade is aboriginal seeded for its amazing third act acknowledgment aback Z and Aech go spping. This is acutely the weapon of best for the best pious (and rabbit-infested) of knights from Monty Pytn and the Holy Grail (1975).
- The aboriginal avatar to abase over “rock star” Parzival is addition dressed as Michael Keaton’s Beetlejuice about 1988. Check out the video bold area to ascertain some of the others.
- Art3mis* became the beatnik collection of anybody (of every gender) aback she terrifies Z by accepting a chestburster from Alien (1979) abort her Goro suit. She additionally allegation be a fan of that franchise, actomed her weapon of best that is appear later…
*(From this point on we’ll mostly accredit to “Art3mis” as “Artemis,” because that cardinal is ridiculous. And to be fair, Arty agrees in the Ready Player One novel.)
- The adulation of Halliday and Og’s lives, Karen Underwood, goes by Kira aback she meets Halliday. This is her admiration to a appearance in The Dark Crystal (1982).
- Z refers to Kira as Halliday’s “rosebud.” This is a advertence a little alfresco the wheeluse of Ernest Cline’s bowling alleyway arcade novel, but appropriate in befitting with Spielberg w is calling aback to Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane (1941).
- Aback Nolan Sorrento aboriginal approaches I-R0k, he accomplish out of a comatose martian address from the archetypal War of the Worlds about 1953. Acknowledgment be to commenter Jon Sleeper for actuality eagle-eyed, there.
- Aech additionally has a affiche from the aboriginal Mel Gibson-starring Mad Max (1979) in his barn as Z gets accessible for his big date.
- Aech additionally has a urance that says “Cocktail & Dreams” in neon, aloof like the one in the abrrent Tom Cruise movie, Cocktail (1988).
- Parzival's accouterments of best is that of Peter Weller's appellation appearance from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Aloft the Eighth Dimension, a absolutely bonkers 1984 blur that additionally starred Jeff Goldblum, Ellen Barkin, John Lithgow, and Christopher Lloyd. If you haven't apparent it, do so. Depending on w you ask, it's allotment of a aggregate cosmos with John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China.
*Also a fun actuality our contributor Delia Harrington acicular out is that Ernest Cline's aboriginal blueprint calligraphy (before he went on to address Fanboys) was an advised aftereffect to Buckaroo Banzai. It was apprehend by Harry Knowles w helped best Cline as a writer. (Knowles additionally is actomed as addition w helped apprehend aboriginal drafts of teh atypical Accessible Player One in the book.)
- During Z and Arty’s candied (and visually stunning) dance, Wade goes the abounding cine beatnik and selects the song “Stayin’ Alive” from Saay Night Fever (1977). And he completes the admirable debility of it with the bubble disco brawl attic that John Travolta already huffed across.
- Already IOI crashes the party, Arty reveals her weapon of best that she uses througut the film, an M41A Beating Rifle that Sigourney Weaver fabricated so bad in James Cameron’s Aliens (1986).

- Nolan aing pledges to about-face all the scols on Ludus (the OASIS’ educational planet that plays a aloft role in the book) into replicas of the aerial scols from John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club (1985) and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. However, Z tries to blooper Nolan up by allotment the aerial academy from Fast Times at Ridgemont Aerial (1982) and the academy in Animal House (1978).
- Aback attractive at the films James Halliday might’ve put on to “seduce” Kira, amiss cices accommodate The Fly (1986) and Say Annihilation (1989). So apparently these were VHS tapes in the ‘90s actomed the differing years?
- The appropriate best is of course, amazingly, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980). See Accessible Player One and The Shining annex beneath for a complete deconstruction of this arrangement in the film.
- Additionally amid the cine posters of added films Halliday watched that anniversary is Fireser (1984), which starred Spielberg angel Drew Barrymore. It additionally must've meant Halliday was on a Stephen King bang that week. Acknowledgment to @thegeekflux for spotting this one!
- The Overlook Amphitheater axial the OASIS additionally has a Acknowledgment of the Jedi (1983) poster, so it’s not all Kubrickian bottomward there…
- The abracadabra spell casting on the orb controlled by Sorrento and I-R0k is absolutely the exact aloft spell Merlin acclimated to transform Uther into the visage of his adversary in John Boorman's Excalibur (1981). It was alleged "Charm of Making" in that movie, and it actomed Uther to booty his foe's wife and in the activity ancestor the adolescent w would become King Arthur. Actomed that Z's name is a behemothic adulation letter to that blur (chech out the Parzival area for more), that makes this added cool. Also, acknowledgment to commenters Wil Dalphin and Tom Stephens for bringing this to our attention.
- During the final third of the film, we ascertain the fate of the OASIS depends on your ability with an Atari 2600. If you aces the amiss game, into the ice you go, which feels like it could be a nod to the “banishment” apparent in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), as Spielberg is a articulate adherent of Christopher Nolan and tse Batman movies. In that vein…
- While IOI fools are demography afresh arctic splashes, Parzival and Daito autrity Nolan earnest in a simulation-within-a-simulation. And Daito’s all-black clothing and silencer-adorned gun seems carefully evocative of the dream-within-a-dream iconography of Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010).
- Similarly, aback Wade leaves Sorrento’s faux-of, he rips off his face to acknowledge he’s absolutely Parzival in a beheld carefully evocative of Mission: Absurd (1996) and its abounding sequels.
- Faux-Daito additionally seems to accord a clue he is not really, able-bodied real, actomed a aglow amber burnish in his eyes, which seems like a sly nod to the admonition urance of replicants in the aboriginal Brand Runner.
- Aloft the absolute OASIS axis on Sorrento, the scene-stealing I-R0k quotes It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) at the exact amiss time to addition w is acutely a Mr. Potter type: “No man is a abortion w has friends.”

(The cine that Halliday maybe additionally suld accept put on for Kira, instead of The Shining.)
- During the third act uber-video bold activity the absolute cine is baseborn by “IT’S FUCKING CHUCKY!” And if you allegation me to explain that evil, -haired adulterated babyish is from Child’s Comedy (1988), like what are you alike accomplishing here?

(Alas 1990’s TMNT live-action designs would accept been way acknowledgment and added fitting). We’ve additionally heard Spielberg complaining a Gremlin got into a anatomy address of ILM, so we brainstorm they’re in actuality somewhere. Check out the Amateur and Misc. area for added cameos.
- Addition additionally at the end actuality is aation a Glaive from Krull (1983), a five-sided brilliant that additionally acts like a boomarang aloft occasion.
- Nolan Sorrento pulls the ultimate move and turns into Mechazilla from Godzilla vs. Mechazilla (1974). Alike cooler, it appearance Akira Iube’s “Godzilla March” affair from Godzilla (1954).

- The abundance and faux-egg aloft its bat in this fakeout allowance is additionally evocative of the abundance accession in the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin (1992), complete with a ruby-shaped egg that beckons the monkey Abu to his almost-doom. But as Disney didn’t ume to comedy brawl with WB on this, it is ue.
- Amid babyish Halliday’s decorations are statues of Godzilla and Robby the Robot, the closing actuality from the affecting Forbidden Planet (1956), which is a blur that had a abstruse aftereffect on Spielberg.

- Allowance 237 appearance a apparition that attacked adolescent Danny Torrance, and like with Aech, it additionally seduces his ancestor as a attractive adolescent woman afore axis into a ashen old woman (altugh she does not try to annihilate him with an axe). Additionally acclaim for the blur acquainted that Aech brand women, as best m-marketed blockbusters shy abroad from LGBTQ characters.
