There’s certainly been plenty of mockery of the film’s latest poster, where you could easily be mistaking Tye Sheridan for Stretch Armstrong with ‘that leg’.
Thankfully the terrific new trailer for ‘Ready Player One’ directed by Steven Spielberg is far more pleasing on the eye, as we’re plunged deeper into the vast virtual reality of the OASIS, with this latest sneak-peek making glorious use of Van Halen’s Jump.
Also starring Mark Rylance, Ben Mendelsohn and Olivia Cooke, ‘Ready Player One’ debuts in UK cinemas on 30th March 2018.
‘From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.
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.’
