Ready Player One Set Photos & Videos Highlight Retro Pop Culture

Ready Player One movie is now filming

As his career has progressed, Steven Spielberg has displayed a mastery of the historical drama genre, delivering Oscar contenders such as War Horse, Lincoln, and Bridge of Spies. But as most film fans know, Spielberg is essentially the godfather of the Hollywood blockbuster, establishing himself as a filmmaking force with works like Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial. His upcoming adaptation of the novel Ready Player One is seen by many as Spielberg returning to his roots, since he described the film as "a big rockin' adventure movie." For longtime fans, it will be nice to see him back in that wheelhouse.

Spielberg has commenced principal photography on Ready Player One, and last month some set images illustrated how the director was going to portray the dystopian future of the source material. Now, more photos and videos have emerged on social media, placing a spotlight on the project's retro pop culture element with street graffiti that's sure to conjure up feelings of nostalgia.

ComingSoon rounded up a collection of tweets taken from the Birmingham filming locations, which include looks at Spielberg directing members of the cast. You can check them all out below:
