There are non CG characters in this movie – let me show you them.
Previous trailers have been pretty Oasis heavy – this new one looks more at the real world. We get a look at cast members, and the stacks, instead of their VR counter parts.
I don’t have strong opinions on the book – it was decent entertainment while on an airplane, it didn’t change my life and didn’t ruin it. I don’t expect much beyond that from the movie version. It certainly looks pretty, and it definitely has every bit of nostalgic IP they could get their hands on. Whether a good story is amongst the video game characters and movie monsters or not shall be seen when it comes out.
