It's Back to the Future in Spielberg’s Insane New Film

Steven Spielberg’s new film has a trailer, and for the eagle-eyed it boasts appearances from the likes of The A-Team, Freddy Krueger and Lara Croft, as well as a host of other icons from the past.

One of the highlights from the recent San Diego Comic-Con event was the spectacular new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s retro sci-fi adventure adaptation of Ready Player One. It’s full of the most unlikely cameos and pop culture references from the 80s, and has got fans speculating about who else will turn up in the film. Here’s the trailer below.

Tye Sheridan (recently seen as Cyclops in the latest X-Men film) stars as Wade Watts, a character who lives in a futuristic shanty town known as The Stacks. His only escape is a virtual reality world and from the moment we see him step into the alternative universe he is surrounded by well-loved characters made famous on the big (and small) screen.

We know exactly what we are in for when we see The Iron Giant stride into show, and from then on it’s a breakneck journey of relentless “Is that who I think it is?!?” cameo-spotting.

We catch a glimpse of the DeLorean car used by Marty McFly in the Back to the Future series, as well as the likes of Lara Croft, several DC Universe comicbook heroes (including a possible appearance by Batman and Harley Quinn) and the motorcycle from Akira.
