Steven Spielberg’s READY PLAYER ONE Debuts Spectacular First Trailer July 23, 2017 “There’s nowhere left to go. Nowhere, except the Oasis.” Jaw dropping first footage from the highly anticipated adaptation includes the Delorean from Back to the Future, Freddy Krueger, the Iron Giant and more. Based on the bestselling book by Ernest Cline, READY PLAYER ONE 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. READY PLAYER ONE lands in Irish cinemas March 2018.
