Rush 2112 t-shirt spotted in latest trailer for Ernest Cline and Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One film

Ready Player One is the critically-acclaimed, 2011 sci-fi book from author, self-described seventies/eighties protonerd and Rush fan Ernest Cline. Ready Player One makes several references to '80s pop culture, with particular attention to cult films, classic arcade video games and music. The book contains several references to Rush including a particularly significant one involving the band's 2112 album. A film adaptation of the book directed by Steven Spielberg and with a script by Zak Penn and Cline is currently slated for release on March 29th. The latest trailer for the film was released earlier today and sharp-eyed reader Starscream2112 spotted a Rush 2112 t-shirt being worn by one of the characters at about the 44-second mark as seen in this screenshot (if you blink you'll miss it). This, along with Tom Sawyer being prominently featured in the film's first trailer, bodes well for the possibility of seeing more Rush featured in the film, including the prominent role played by 2112 (fingers crossed!). You can watch the latest trailer for the film below or at this location, and learn more about it at the official website or on Facebook/Twitter.
