Ready Player One Magic Eye prints revealed by RealD
Last night, RealD sponsored Warner Bros. Pictures‘ Opening Night Party at SXSW for the launch of the Ready Player One VR experience inspired by the film. Jump into the limitless expanse of the Oasis and immerse yourself in a host of Virtual 3D worlds, unlike anything you have ever experienced, at SXSW. Ready Player One is a love note to ’80s pop culture, and to celebrate this visually-stunning film, RealD partnered with Magic Eye to hit you with some very rad 3D nostalgia. RealD commissioned three original, highly-collectible Ready Player One Magic Eye prints, which debuted at the opening night party sponsored by RealD. Guests attending the VR installation at Brazos Hall will receive one of three posters as a parting gift while supplies last.
A limited print run of 4,000 each is sure to make these a prized collector’s item. Each print features a unique hidden key—Copper, Jade or Crystal—the same keys Wade Watts and friends, the High Five, are searching for in Ready Player One. Can you see the images in the Magic Eye prints below? Here are some helpful hints from Magic Eye:
MAGIC EYE® 3D INSTRUCTIONS: Place your nose close to your viewing device until the Magic Eye Image is blurry. Stare far beyond the image, as if you are looking at a sunset. Very slowly move away from the 3D image until you begin to see depth. Now hold still, try not to blink, and the hidden illusion will slowly appear. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes.
Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen and Ben Mendelsohn.
The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger..
A Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures production, the Ready Player One movie is being directed by Steven Spielberg, who is also producing alongside Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger. Bruce Berman will serve as executive producer. Based on Ernest Cline’s novel, the screenplay is by Cline and Zak Penn. Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future trilogy) will compose the music.
Ready Player One gets its game on when it opens on March 29, 2018.
