The Ready Player One trailer has arrived, and it’s far more promising than that poorly Photoshopped poster that hit the internet yesterday.
Even more exciting? In conjunction with the trailer release, author Ernest Cline announced during a Facebook livestream that he is hard at work on a Ready Player One sequel.
Please don’t be called Ready Player Two. Please don’t be called Ready Player Two.
Revealed Cline, “It’s true. I can’t talk about it too much, but there’s no better inspiration for a writer to return to a world they’ve already worked on when they’re watching Steven Spielberg bring that world to life.”
You can watch the official trailer below. Hopefully it’ll tide you over until Ready Player One hits theatres on March 30, 2018.
From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.
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” stars Tye Sheridan (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Mud”), Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Bates Motel”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One – A Star Wars Story,” “Bloodline”) and T.J. Miller (“Deadpool,” “Silicon Valley”), with Simon Pegg (the “Star Trek” movies, the “Mission: Impossible” movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” “Dunkirk”).
