With this first trailer, we get an introduction to Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), a teenager just trying to survive in the dismal future of 2045 by submersing himself into the OASIS, a digital realm of infinite possibilities. If you have read the book, you will recognize plenty of the scenes teased. If you have not, well, why not? The book, which also boasts its own easter egg, is a fun ride and there is plenty of time to read it before Ready Player One releases on March 30, 2018.
Watch the trailer below and get ready to dive into the OASIS and join Watts’ digital avatar Parzival on the hunt for James Halliday’s (Mark Rylance) fortune!
From Warner Bros:
In 2045, the planet is on the brink of chaos and collapse, but people find salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he promises his immense fortune to the first person to discover a digital Easter egg that’s hidden somewhere in the OASIS. When young Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) joins the contest, he finds himself becoming an unlikely hero in a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical world of mystery, discovery and danger.
