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 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.
