Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One moves away from Star Wars!


Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. It was only a matter of time before Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernie Cline's Ready Player One moved off of its announced December 15th, 2017 release date once big bad Star Wars Episode VIII moved in on that space.

It'd take a lot to force Steven Spielberg to move a sci-fi fantasy adventure film away from any date, but when it comes to Star Wars you just kind of have to get out of its way.

THR's Borys Kit says they've moved to March 30th, 2018, which gives them a little more time to get the movie prepped, filmed and, more importantly, finished in post.



I gotta say, I'm getting a ridiculous amount of glee watching the date-shift scramble post-Star Wars moving from May 2017 to December. Just shows how much of a juggernaut that franchise is, especially since this one will be the continuing adventures of Rey, Finn, Poe and BB-8!

Don't fret, though. There's more than enough room for Star Wars and awesome Spielberg adventure films. Man, it's a good time to be a geek!
