Ready Player One – Official Trailer

Warner Bros. Ready Player One is coming to theaters 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.

Spielberg directed the film from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The film was produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah; with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.

“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,” upcoming “Dunkirk”).

  1. Let’s see – of the new cameos we’ve got in this trailer that I’ve noticed, there’s (in no particular order):

    1) Tracer from Overwatch
    2) An RX-78 Gundam (maybe the Mk. 2)
    3) King Kong (I’d assume they got Kong instead of Godzilla, except one of the recent Super Robot Wars games got both Godzilla and Mecha-Godzilla so they may still be on the table. Maybe in place of Ultraman?)
    4) Parzival might be using Max Rockatansky’s sawed off shotgun
    5) Chocobo’s being ridden into battle (from the Final Fantasy series).
    6) Chucky the Killer Doll (I mean, we’ve got Freddy, so why not).

    Anything else I missed?

  2. Someone’s posted an excerpt from the book on Facebook, and after reading it, I’m feeling glad that the warnings of Filers made me decide that I had other things I wanted to read a lot more.

  3. The book is good – the plot line uses VR instead of visa-versa. But the movie looks true to the book – looks like Spielberg hit the mark.
    It is a classic good vs evil, with some YA thrown in, but please give it a go.
