‘Ready Player One’ Featurette: See The Future

A featurette for Ready Player One has come online, featuring some new footage, clips from classic films, and Steven Spielberg talking up Ernest Cline‘s novel. Check it out below.

Synopsis: 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.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

  • I’m cautiously optimistic.

  • the girl/boy

    It’s in fashion. That or dad-bods. I don’t f*cking know anymore.

  • I’ll be seeing it at least 3 times.

    Unless it sucks. Then probably only twice. So Spielberg better not disappoint!

  • William Dhalgren

    You’re probably dying to see this, huh?

  • Poppity⛄

    I see shades of Tron: Legacy with the kid walking into the building with 80s music playing and the girl/boy (I couldn’t tell) putting on the helmet. Take on Me is the way to go, I must say. 😀
    Don’t think I’ll catch this but I’m sending happy vibes to Duke for it.

  • My body is ready.
