V8 Pursuit Special in Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One

So it appears along with some other pop culture references, an incarnation of Max's Pursuit Special has made its way into Steven Spielberg's new movie 'Ready Player One' as it can be seen in a number of shots in the new trailer. And as a way to piss us Mad Max fans off, they crash the Black on Black again. The odd thing is that this is a bit of an odd version of the Pursuit Special as it seems to be an "In-between" version of the car as it has the full front end spoiler and the duel rear tanks. Here is the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiK2fhOY0nE

You can see her for about 2 nano-seconds of the whole trailer and, of course, she gets destroyed.. again... :lol:

That bike seems to be a cross between TRON and Akira.

You also missed the Gran Torino from starsky and hutch.

Sorry but the movie looks like... crap really.
A movie about the future, where people prefer to live in VR.
yawn

I didn't spot a Torino but I spotted the car from Christine and what's either Bigfoot 8,9, or 10.

That's the thing.
No. WB partially owns Mad Max. In my next video which will be about the Mad Max video game I'll be talking about the relationship of WB and Miller and what it means to the MM franchise.
