I'm excited to share this latest trailer for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One with you! It's called "Pure Imagination" and it's loaded some incredibly radical new footage that fans are going to flip over! This new trailer gave me the chills and filled me with so much joy and happiness. As you'd expect, there are even more awesome Easter eggs to point out and you can't miss a lot of them. For example, the T-Rex from Jurassic Park even makes an appearance and attacks! I love this!
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.
If you haven't read the book that this film is based on yet, you really need to. Don't wait for the movie. It's just too good not to read. I know there are some people that don't understand the hype behind this film, but if you read the book, you will understand that it is a love letter to geek culture, especially to those of us who grew up in the 80s.
The movie stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen and Ben Mendelsohn.
Ready Player One gets its game on when it opens on March 29, 2018.
