This new stunning Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new movie ‘Ready Player One’ will make your day.
The film, based on the novel by Ernest Cline, stars Tye Sheridan as Wade Owen Watts, a teenager in the year 2045 who spends his time in the virtual reality world the OASIS, searching for a hidden Easter Egg which would bring him half a trillion dollars in riches if found.
The trailer begins with Wade introducing himself, explaining that his father picked his name for him “because it sounded like superheroes alter ego.”
Both of Wade’s parents died when he was young, leaving him in a futuristic version of Columbus, Ohio. “Sitting here in my tiny corner of nowhere, there’s nowhere left to go,” he says. “Nowhere except the OASIS.”
The OASIS, Wade explains, is “a whole virtual universe” where people come “for all the things they can do, but… stay because of all the things they can be.” “It’s the only place that feels like I mean anything,” he explains.
The OASIS was the brainchild of James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who has recently died and is promising total control of the virtual world, described as “the world’s most important economic resource,” to anyone who can find the Easter Egg.
The movie stars Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Hannah John-Kamen, Lena Waithe, Win Morisaki, Ralph Ineson, Letitia Wright, and Philip Zhao and directed by Spielberg based on a script from Zak Penn and Cline.
The movie hits the cinemas on March 30, 2018.
