After its world premiere at SXSW drew mostly positive reactions (as well as giving Steven Spielberg the “greatest anxiety attack” ever), Ready Player one is just about ready to hit theaters worldwide, and Regal Cinemas has some exclusive collectible tickets for the first two weeks it plays at IMAX theaters under the Regal name.
Regal Cinemas tweeted a promotional graphic showcasing the two exclusive collectible IMAX tickets that feature artwork inspired by the film.
The first collectible ticket features the iconic DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future. The second collectible ticket involves some of the film’s main characters donning their OASIS VR goggles:

10 Characters Gary Oldman Could Play In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Recently, Gary Oldman teased that he would be interested in a role in a Marvel film. Having won an Academy award this year for his role as Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, there is no doubt that Oldman is a masterful actor. He is no stranger to the big budget blockbuster world either, with memorable turns as Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, the human villain Dreyfus in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films. It would serve Marvel Studios well to add him to their ranks.
An actor of Oldman’s caliber could easily fit in anywhere within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He could pull off a number of supporting roles, such as Sue and Johnny’s father, Franklin Storm; a new take on a minor X-Men foe we’ve seen before, like William Stryker or Bolivar Trask; a somewhat older version of a legacy character who passes his mantle on to a younger hero, such as Nova or Quasar; or even another Elder of the Universe to join The Collector and The Grandmaster. However, in lieu of just signing him up for anyone and everyone, we decided to determine the ten characters he might be best suited for, in case Marvel Studios decides to make the call.
One last note before we begin, this list not only includes characters Marvel Studios already owns the rights to, as well as Spider-Man characters that Sony could potentially lend them for a solo Spidey film, but we’re also including characters currently owned by 21st Century Fox. If the proposed Disney/Fox deal goes through, Marvel will not hesitate to incorporate the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and all of their villains into their universe. With this now being within the realm of possibilty, there’s no reason not to include these characters on this list. Also, there are so few characters that Marvel has owned all this time that they have yet to introduce in their universe, whether it be in film or on television, so there are actually far more Fox-owned characters that make more sense for this list.
So, without further ado, here are the 10 Marvel roles that we think Gary Oldman should play in the MCU…
