Warner Bros. Pictures has released both a new commercial and featurette for “Ready Player One,” the upcoming Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel scheduled to open March 30th.
Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen and Ben Mendelsohn star in the film which is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse.
People have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance) who dies and announces that he’s leaving his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS. The contest soon grips the entire world.
