Yes we’re all really excited about Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, and yes the new trailer is brilliant – but we can’t concentrate on all that when there’s another issue staring us right in the face.
That issue is Tye Sheridan’s freakishly long leg.
Fans were confused at the new poster for the movie, in which Sheridan’s character Wade Watts has one monster leg, and one normal one.
Some questioned how it managed to sneak past the marketing execs:
How did this happen in the Ready Player One movie poster? That looks weird, right? Did Steven Spielberg himself make it? And everyone around him was just like "looks great boss. His leg doesn't look weird all." pic.twitter.com/Q7OKvbJ4WM

While others used the opportunity to get in some pun-tastic one-liners:
I can't take Ready Player One seriously with the leg in that fucking poster. Someone got paid for that shit. lol

So, Ready Player One poster. Leg has to be intentional. Right?

My housemate's girlfriend saw me giggling at the READY PLAYER ONE poster and, having seen nothing else about it, went "Is Player Two his leg?"

Based on the debut novel of the same name by Ernie Cline, Ready Player One is set in a dystopian world where almost everyone spends their life in a virtual reality systems known as OASIS.
In the OASIS, players can visit any world imaginable.
Mark Rylance (Dunkirk, The BFG) as OASIS founder James Halliday, who left behind a huge pop culture Easter egg hunt in the alternate world before he passed away. Whoever finds the three hidden keys will gain control of the entire system.
Wade then teams up with another competitor Art3mis, played by Olivia Cooke (Me, Earl and The Dying Girl, Bates Motel), to find all the keys before a corporation, run by Ben Mendelsohn’s (Rogue One) evil character Nolan Sorrento, is able to take over.
But honestly, no one can care about that at the moment because we’re all wondering if Tye’s long loooong leg will be starring as a character itself in the film.
Cue plenty of running in circles.
