Spielberg debuts 'Ready Player One' footage

Ready Player One trailer revealed

Warner Bros. has finally debuted the long-anticipated first trailer for Steven Spileberg's adaptation of adaptation of Ernest Cline's sci-fi classic Ready Player One, and it dos not disappoint. The director unveiled a new action- and nostalgia-packed trailer for the film Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con to much excitement. The story follows Wade Watts as he searches for an Easter egg that will forever change his life and the world. Wade Watts joins an global scavenger hunt in the virtual world to track down three clues left behind by OASIS's founder.

The futuristic movie features such 80s icons as The Iron Giant, Freddie Krueger, and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. "I learned to become a storyteller from this guy ... his films are woven in my DNA", said the author, who mentioned the movie will be a huge breakthrough for showing the masses the power of virtual reality. And the footage delivered big, sweeping, pop culture fun.

"Ready Player One" readies for box office battle on March 30, 2018.




The cast includes longtime Spielberg collaborator Mark Rylance, Silicon Valley's T.J. Miller (sporting an E.T. T-shirt at the panel), Rogue One's Ben Mendelsohn, Hot Fuzz's Simon Pegg and Hannah John-Kamen, who played a First Order officer in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. When Halliday dies, he leaves his vast 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.

Spielberg called the film's world "a flash future that is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not". Hopefully this won't go the way of Ender's Game and with Spielberg at the helm, it seems silly to even think that way.
