Ready Player One is ready to play March 29th!
Are you ready for Steven Spielberg's latest science fiction adventure READY PLAYER ONE to start playing in cinemas March 29th? Filled with 80's sf movies feel and hidden pop culture references it will see Tye Sheridan playing a boy named Wade Watts who is lost in the immersive virtual reality world known as The Oasis! Today, you can check out the latest character posters and a trailer for the movie which also has Mark Rylance, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and Olivia Cooke starring in the cast.
The movie is based on Ernest Cline novel

READY PLAYER ONE
is actually a big screen adaptation of a popular science fiction novel by Ernest Cline (who actually mentions Steven Spielberg in the very book the director is now helming) and it revolves around a young outcast named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan). In the near future, Watts escapes from his daily drudgery by logging onto an MMO game called 'The Oasis'. When the game's billionaire founder (Mark Rylance who worked with Spielberg two years ago in The Big Friendly Giant) dies, he offers players his fortune as the prize in an easter egg hunt within The Oasis and also the control over the entire Oasis. Watts gets in on the action then after five years finds himself facing off against corporate foes who will go to any lengths to get the money -- in both the real world and in The Oasis.

TONS OF CULTURAL REFERENCES
Alan Silvestri who composed the music in Van Helsing, Croods, Avengers, Captain America, Lara Croft, Night at the Museum and other films, is doing the score for this one and this is only the  third time Spielberg is working with John Williams in the music department. Some of the characters that the movie mentions in its numerous references includes heroes from Lord of the Rings, Tron, Akira, Iron Giant, Back to the Future, Tomb Raider etc.

    2. I'd say luckily. I have friends whose husbands play and the games get more attention than they do.

  4. So are Alan and John Williams both working on the score? Williams does a great job with movie scores. He has a sixth sense of how to time things to evoke an emotional reaction.

    1. No, Williams is not working at all due to scheduling conflict. This is only the third movie in Spielberg's career that wasn't scored by Williams
