The film adaptation of Ready Player One keeps getting closer. Here the second trailer of the new film by Steven Spielberg.
Ready Player One became a reference novel for anyone who grew up in the eighties, fond of video games, movies, comics and, in general, pop culture. The work of Steven Cline caused a stir in the publishing world and the film adaptation was only a matter of time.
According to the Verge it is set in a massive virtual reality world called OASIS, Ready Player One follows Wade Watts, a teenager who spends his time searching for three hidden Easter eggs left behind by the system’s founder.
As you know, this is the responsibility of Steven Spielberg himself and Warner Bros who now have released a new trailer today. In it we can see much clearer elements and the film seems to mix elements of the books with much, much, new content. This may not convince staunch fans of the literary work but because of difficulty in adapting according to what passages or licensing problems with multiple references, it seems a necessary evil.
In the film we can see Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Mark Rylance, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Hannah John-Kamen, Lena Waithe and TK Miller and will hit theaters next March 30, 2018. A date to mark for any fan of science fiction.
