Stephen Spielberg made an appearance at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday to premiere the very first footage from his new movie “Ready Player One”, an adaptation of Ernie Cline’s sci-fi nostalgia filled book.
When the novel for “Ready Player One” shot up on the best sellers list, fans had immediately been anticipating a movie adaptation and their wishes have come true.
Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan as Wade, a young man who prefers to mentally live in the Oasis, a massive virtual reality internet. When the Oasis’ creator dies, he starts a worldwide treasure hunt for control of his massive company and Wade, along with several other people, devote their life to the game. A game that is solely based on their intimate knowledge of popular culture. If you look closely enough at the trailer, you will see some familiar faces/objects by the likes of; the Iron Giant, Back to the Future, Nightmare on Elm Street and so much more.
The trailer shows a big race at the end which isn’t featured in the novel, meaning Stephen is going to be putting his own little spin on the story and we’ll see a more drastic turn compared to the book.
Watch the Ready Player One trailer here:
Ready Player One premieres March 30th, 2018.
