Gundam Makes Debut in 'Ready Player One'

Anime Movies Gundam Otaku

The latest trailer for Steven Speilberg's Ready Player One was released on December 11, 2017. While you've probably already noticed the iconic red bike from Akira, did you spot the RX-78-2 Gundam at 2:16 and again at 2:21?

The movie is based on Ernest Cline's best-selling 2011 novel of the same name. Set in a dystopian Earth where the only real entertainment is an immersive VR world called the Oasis, Ready Player One will be released in Japan on April 20, 2018.
