There’s just over a month until Ernest Cline’s love letter to the 80’s and nerd culture, Ready Player One arrives on the big screen courtesy of the source for most of that nostalgia and culture, Steven Spielberg. Set in 2045, Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is one of the millions who basically live in the OASIS, a VR world where everything and anything is possible. The creator of OASIS, James Halliday (Mark Rylance) dies and leaves a video message detailing a final challenge; he’s hidden three Easter Eggs in the world of OASIS and the first person to find all three will inherit his fortune and his company. An evil corporation led by Ben Mendelsohn is determined to find the eggs by any means necessary to control and exploit OASIS for their own greedy ends and the war between the corporation and the regular nerds is on. The movie is jammed to the gills with characters and references to pretty much every movie, TV show, anime, video game and comic you can imagine and it all builds to what looks like may be one of the most insane final battles in movie history. The movie is out on March 29th and you can check out the final trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
