First 'Ready Player One' Trailer Debuts at Comic-Con Panel!

Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke pose at a photo call for Ready Player One before hitting the stage at the Warner Bros. panel held during 2017 Comic-Con on Saturday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

The co-stars were joined at the event by T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, director Steven Spielberg, and author Ernie Cline.

The futuristic movie features such 80s icons as The Iron Giant, Freddie Krueger, and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. You can see them all in the first footage from the film, which debuted during the panel.

“What made me want to tell the story more than anything else, was the kind of world 2045 gives to people, which is so dystopian,” Steven said during the panel (via THR). “People are leaving the country and all of a sudden virtual reality gives you a choice, gives you another world to exist in. And you can do anything in that world. Anything you can possibly imagine … that interaction between real life and virtual life, by the third act of this movie is virtual non-existant.”

Elizabeth Banks Apologizes for Forgetting 'Color Purple' in Remarks About Steven Spielberg

Elizabeth Banks was slammed by people on social media this week after she forgot that Steven Spielberg directed the iconic film The Color Purple while slamming him for not featuring female leads in his movies.

The 43-year-old actress and director was accepting Women in Film’s Excellence in Film award on Tuesday (June 13) when she made the remark. After someone in the audience called out the mistake, she kept on talking, something she addresses in an apology statement she just released.

“I went to Indiana Jones and Jaws and every movie Steven Spielberg ever made, and by the way, he’s never made a movie with a female lead. Sorry, Steven. I don’t mean to call your ass out but it’s true,” Elizabeth said during her speech.
