Ladies and gentlemen! I present to you the new trailer for Steven Spielberg's feature film adaptation of Ready Player One in all its epic glory!
Once again I was completely blown away! I knew that this trailer would give us an even better look at what this movie will entail and I knew it would be awesome, but I didn't expect the feelings that this new trailer would bring out in me. I'm just overwhelmed with joy and excitement!
I absolutely loved the book that this film is based on and I'm completely ok with the fact that this movie looks like it's going to be different than the book in many aspects. I expected that would be the case, and as long as the spirit of the book and the characters are prevalent throughout the course of the film, I'll be happy. Judging from this trailer they definitely accomplished that! Of course, seeing some of the scenes from the book brought to life for the movie is so freakin' cool as well! I think this movie will at least live up to my expectations.
I'm just so excited about this movie and I can't wait to see it. I wish I could just watch the whole movie now. I think I'm going to have to read the book one more time before the movie is released to tide me over and keep my excitement contained because I feel like I'm about to explode.
Watch the trailer for yourself below and experience it for yourself! When you're done watching tell us what you think!
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..
The film also stars Tye Sherida, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn and T.J. Miller, and Simon Pegg. It's set to be released on March 30, 2018.
