Home Release Of Ready Player One Is Going To Be Perfect For Catching All Those Pop Culture References. Check Out These Extra Features.

ready player one 3d home release blu ray


My favourite movie of the year so far is the Steven Spielberg adaption of Ernest Cline's epic story, "Ready Player One."  It's one of those movies that has to be watched more than once mainly because there are so many popular culture references packed into the two hours and nineteen minutes.  Thankfully, due to the imminent home release of "Ready Player One" we will be able to pause the movie whenever we notice one of those references.

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc of “Ready Player One” will feature Dolby Vision HDR that dramatically expands the colour palette and contrast range and uses dynamic metadata to automatically optimize the picture for every screen, frame by frame.  If you own a 4K TV and player, then you are in for a visual treat.

It's not just the visual that gets the extra special treatment as the 4K Ultra Blu-ray and Blu-ray discs of “Ready Player One” will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theatre environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar. Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

So expect a visual and audio experience that will make you feel you are right there in the Oasis.

Now, what about the extra features?  We've got the info and listed below:

In the meantime we've included the observations we found from the trailer that we posted during the build up to the theatrical release of the movie.  Look out for these when you watch your home release of "Ready Player One."  Let us know how many you find and which one is your favourite.

Look out for the bike that scrapes across the ground. It boasts an Atari logo and we were informed by Paul Weller on our Facebook page that the bike is in fact Kaneda's bike from Akira.

Back to the Future is featured in the trailer. Check out that Delorean retro fitted from Back to the Future II.

And here's a quick glimpse inside the Delorean complete with time circuits. Check out the dates.

Check out that glorious Competition Pro Joystick. I had one of those.

Ready for the race, or is it a battle? Someone got the pre-order exclusive F1 car by the look of it.

Feel a lot safer with the Iron Giant on my side. Steven Spielberg says he has a significant part.

Freddy Kruger in the dream? Or nightmare?

It has a Minority Report feel

Heroes are a plenty in this world. Harley Quinn and Deathstroke are not joking around.

Fancy a game of Trackmania anyone?

This guy doesn't look friendly

Be a superhero on a giant mechanical scorpion in 2045. The future seems glorious. Or is it?

In the shot with all the vehicles, look to the right. You'll see the A-Team van and what appears to be Christine next to it.

I think that's Lara Croft leaning up against Christine.

Is that Mad Max's Interceptor vehicle in the chase scene?

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
