If you love 80s nostalgia and all things virtual reality then Steven Spielberg’s big screen adaptation of Ernest Cline’s cult novel Ready Player One is one movie you’ll have to check out.
The brand new trailer has just been released and it is out of this world. Check it out below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows the adventures of Wade Watt aka Parzival (Tye Sheridan) as he steps inside the virtual reality landscape known as the Oasis. There he seeks to win an astonishing prize left behind by the world’s creator James Donovan Halliday (Mark Rylance).
The new trailer packed out with awesome visuals and Spielberg really amps up its 80s nostalgia with a thumping electronica score along with the addition of classic tunes such as Van Halen’s ‘Jump’.
Lead performer Tye Sheridan appears to be doing a terrific job as Wade Watt/Parzival and he’ll have to contend with a major big bad in the form of Ben Mendelsohn’s corporate titan and purveyor of the status quo Nolan Sorrento.

Ready Player One is a visual feast for the eyes and will be released in cinemas on March 29, 2018.
