Are You Ready?
Steven Spielberg's long-awaited cinematic adaptation of Ernest Cline's bestseller Ready Player One is now in theaters and the marketing machine keeps rolling along in high gear!

April 5 Update
RPO Music Available Now
If you’ve been as enthralled as us with the music powering the amazing Ready Player One adventure, be sure to check out two new releases from WaterTower Music, Warner Bros.' in-house music label for movies, television and games, Available now for digital download is the Ready Player One - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring the score from veteran composer Alan Silvestri spanning 22 tracks.
Director Steven Spielberg said of Silvestri's work on the film: "While all sorts of culturally iconic references populate Ready Player One, the score that Alan Silvestri composed is completely and intoxicatingly original. It’s bound together by multiple themes that identify plot and character and is infused by such percussive adrenaline and soaring strings that Alan has made Ready Player One appear to fly. I think his score is fantastic."
For his part, Silvestri notes:
An invitation to travel arrived just about a year ago, not just to a place, but to a time. Actually, to a number of times—primarily the year 2045, along with a few stops in the '80s. A rather detailed map had been drawn by Ernest Cline and the Captain of the voyage, none other than Mr. Spielberg himself. What could one possibly do or say? Pencil in hand, one firmly fastens one’s seatbelt, says 'Sir, Yes, Sir,' and prepares for the trip of a lifetime.
In addition to the current digital release, you can also pick up a double-CD version of Ready Player One - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on April 6.
If that weren't enough, WaterTower has also digitally released Ready Player One - Songs from the Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring 10 songs found in this pop culture dream of a film from the likes of Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Tears for Fears, Blondie, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Bee-Gees, The Temptations, New Order, Twisted Sister and Hall & Oates. There is one new recording found among the 11 tracks as well, and that’s the beautiful and haunting cover of “Pure Imagination” from Bryan Nguyen featuring Merethe Soltvedt. You may remember Gene Wilder’s take on the song as Willy Wonka more than 45 years ago.
