While we got our first look at Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One earlier this year, not much was revealed about the film’s story. The latest trailer sets out to change that and, as with the previous trailer, is scattered with loads of Easter Eggs for eagle-eyed viewers to find.
Ready Player One is based on the novel by Ernest Cline and is set in a dystopian world (is there any other) where most people find themselves spending copious amounts of time in a virtual realm called the OASIS. It’s a virtual world where you can be anyone, do anything and truly be free.
The story follows Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) as he sets out to find a hidden fortune placed in the OASIS by its mysterious creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance). It’s a race against time as Wade tries to find the elusive treasure before anyone else can. There are cameos by various well-known game and movie characters in the trailer, including the Battletoads, Chun-Li, Tracer and the Iron Giant.
If the trailer is anything to go by, the film will be an amazing nostalgic experience. Ready Player One is set to release on the 30th of March 2018 and stars T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg and Mark Rylan.
