Ready Player One Hits $400 Million At The Box Office

Last week we reported Ready Player One had hit $300 million at the box office in its first week of release.  Well the Steven Spielberg directed movie based on Ernest Cline's novel is still taking the box office by storm.

The Warner Bros. release has now taken $398 million at the box office worldwide and domestic sales (U.S.) sees the movie breaking the $100 million mark.  These figures don't include Monday and Tuesday sales which when added will most definitely see Ready Player One over $400 million at the box office.  This is after only two weeks, so with at least another week on release we are likely going to see it close to taking half a billion dollars at the box office. 

Not a bad run and it will see the first Steven Spielberg movie since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008 to hit the half a billion mark.  That movie took $786 million worldwide with a budget of $185 million.  Ready Player One's budget we've been told is around the $175 million.

The Ready Player One movie is on course to be Steven Spielberg's sixth biggest world-wide grossing movie sitting behind War of the Worlds which took $591 million in 2005.
