Ready Player One is taking the cinema box office by storm and has reached $300 million in its first week.  Warner Bros. will be pleased.  China has falling in love with Ready Player One with takings sitting at $143 million, that's almost half of the takings overall making the movie Warner's best performing movie in that part of the world.

Ready Player One is currently Spielberg's best performing movie since The Adventures of Tintin in 2011.  That movie took $374 million worldwide and Ready Player One is knocking on that door in just one week.  Here's the box office numbers for Spielberg directed movies since 2008:

  • The Post - $169m
  • The BFG - $183m
  • Bridge of Spies $165m
  • Lincoln - $275m
  • War Horse - $177m
  • Tintin - $374m
  • Crystal Skull - $787m

The encouraging numbers for Ready Player One will make the sequel that author of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline spoke about in a previous interview more of a reality.
