As we previously reported, Spielberg’s highly-anticipated sci-fi epic, Ready Player One premiered at the festival on March 11th.
Spielberg was in attendance for his film’s big night (and this surprise screening), but not all was hunky-dory as far as the screening’s technical aspects.
Apparently, the film’s sound cut out during the film’s climax. The film was then rewound, but the sound cut out again — at the exact same point. So on the third go, the theatre switched from Dolby surround sound, to old-school stereo (obviously not as good) and apparently things then went off smoothly (minus the better sound, of course).
Ready Player One is directed by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg, written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline (based on his novel) and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke and Oscar-winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies).
Official Synopsis: “When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.”
Let’s hope all of the kinks are worked out prior to the film’s wide theatrical release on March 28th, 2018!
