When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.
In the final battle scene when the rest of the avatars join in the fight, Parzival is seen holding a boom box above his head, which may be a reference to the '80s film Say Anything... (1989), where John Cusack holds a boom box to show how much he loves his girlfriend. This scene has also been referenced in The Simpsons (1989) and many other pop culture outlets. Say Anything was also one of the movies the High-Five clan could've chosen when trying to figure out what movie Halliday went on his date.
Get ready for the feel, the real of real. X1. No pain, no gain.
Samantha "zeroes out" in the IOI war room, and a frame later is seen exiting the IOI main lobby at the same time her replacement is suiting up and logging into the OASIS.
The studio logos at the beginning of the movie run slightly faster than normal.
