Starring an ensemble cast of young stars including Tye Sheridan (Jurassic World), Olivia Cooke (Ouija), Ben Mendelsohn (Force the Awakens) and T. J. Miller (Deadpool), Ready Player One is an adaptation of Ernest Cline's (who co-wrote the movie with Eric Eason and Zak Penn) novel of the same name. But when Halliday dies and his will reveals that he has hidden an Easter egg inside the game that will award his vast fortune to whomever discovers it, players take on a new role-"gunters", or egg hunters.
Based on the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, "Ready Player One" concerns the Oasis, a virtual reality universe that humans in the not-too-distant future come to prefer over living in the real world.
"It was like the most fantastic flash-forward and flash-back at the same time", Spielberg said. OASIS, at least in the projection of Wade's mind, is a mix of pop-culture references.
"I grew up watching this man's movies and studying them", said Cline.
The debut trailer for the film was this weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday, showing references to "Tron" and "The Iron Giant". He's STEVEN FREAKING SPIELBERG!
"And you can do whatever you want in this world, everything that you can imagine".
Citizens can live an entire virtual-reality life inside the OASIS, complete with schools and currency.
What I'm talking about is more along the lines of films that feature the gamers themselves, for example "Gamer", "Joysticks", "Noobz" and even "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over".
Ready Player One is one of the more intriguing movies of 2018.
Steven Spielberg has said will be have been delighted with the performance of this science-fiction film about a dark world located 30 years in the future, in 2045.
