When Ready Player One Came to Birmingham (UK)

Ready Player One Featurette

It’s not everyday that Steven Spielberg comes to Birmingham but Warner Bros seems to really love the city as in the summer of 2016, Ready Player One came to town.

The set was spread over areas of Digbeth and the Jewellery Quarter. Both locations transformed into an apocalyptic world as part of the main storyline. I do always find it funny how Birmingham and Stoke on Trent are often used as these ‘apocalyptic’ backdrops. I wonder why..

Courtesy of Bruce Smith who just so happened to be passing on the day of shooting. We have some incredible behind the scenes images including a car chase, the van that H, Artemis, Daito, Sho and Parcival use to escape IOI in an epic scene. In addition, we have some images of Hannah John-Kamen and Lena Waithe’s stunt double amongst the action.
