The folks over at Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s pop culture odyssey. Jam-packed with easter eggs, the chill-inducing footage is set to a cover of “Pure Imagination,” from 1971’s ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.’ Check it out below.
Based on the novel of the same name 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.
