Ready Player One does not open for another two months and today Warner Brothers has released a new featurette that not only celebrates the 1980’s, but embraces the decade in Spielberg style.
Ernest Cline‘s novel Ready Player One is coming to theaters at the end of March and although I have never read the book the movie itself looks to be a fun trip down the road that was the 1980’s. Director Steven Spielberg is bringing Ready Player One to the big screen and thus far all the trailers, TV spots and now this new featurette has me on board to see this movie.
Ready Player One opens in U.S. theaters on March 30th.
Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance
Official Synopsis for Ready Player One:
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.
