Ready Player One Teaser Trailer

Get ready to get your “Game On” as Warner Bros. and director Stephen Spielberg release the teaser trailer for the upcoming film Ready Player One. View trailer below.

In the year 2044, the world has been gripped by an energy crisis from the depletion of fossil fuels and the consequences of global warming, causing widespread social problems and economic stagnation. To escape the decline of the world is facing, people turn to the OASIS, a virtual reality simulator accessible by players using visors and haptic technology such as gloves. It functions both as an MMORPH and as a virtual society, with its currency being the most stable in the real world. It was created by James Halliday who, when he died, had announced in his will to the public that he had left and Easter Egg inside OASIS, and the first person to find it would inherit his entire fortune and the corporation. The story follows the adventures of Wade Watts starting about five years after the announcement, when he discovers one of the three keys pointing to the treasure.

Oh wow….that’s was pretty awesome. I’ve read of this book (the book was written by Ernest Cline), but I never picked up the book. However, after seeing this trailer, I might have to. I was actually quite surprised to see so many iconic film pop culture references in this trailer (i.e. The Iron Giant, Freddy Kruger, and the DeLorean, etc.). In addition, the movie is being directed by Spielberg and the cast, which includes Tye Sheridan, T.J Miller, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, and Mark Rylance. All in all, this looks incredible. Ready Player One is already on my “most anticipated movies” of 2018. Can’t wait!!!

Ready Player One  opens in theaters on March 30th, 2018
