Check out the first official trailer of Ready Player One, the upcoming science-fiction movie adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, T. J. Miller, Mark Rylance, and Hannah John-Kamen:
READY PLAYER ONE
Are you ready?
“The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.”
Looks good, but let’s hope the film will develop a real story and not just rely on visual effects to wow moviegoers… because from the trailer I feel like this is going to be another “Sucker Punch“: all visual effects and no real substance…
A new poster has also been unveiled:(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
The film will hit theaters on March 30, 2018.
