When Ernest Cline’s book was first published, ALL my friends implored me to read it. But sadly, I haven’t… yet. BUT with each subsequent trailer for READY PLAYER ONE, definitely makes me feel I need to carve out some time to read it. That said, a new trailer for Cline’s beloved novel has hit.
Check it out below!
If you’re like me, and no nothing about the book, here’s a quick rundown…
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.
With this trailer came a little bit on the plot of the movie, I was down to see this before, but man, definitely can’t wait now. My only worry? This opens March 30th… and I personally have a curse with movies that come out around the birthday. Let’s hope this one breaks the curse!
READY PLAYER ONE opens March 30, 2018
