New Ready Player One Trailer Promises Another Epic Spielberg Blockbuster


At an event today in Austin, Ernest Cline and the crew of the Ready Player One debuted the film's second trailer. The trailer opens with Wade Watts (played by The Tree of Life / X-Men: Apocalypse star Tye Sheridan) saying that he got his name because his father thought that it sounded like a superhero name. But for now, the first trailer for the film is here. Here, we learn about the hunt for the egg that will take place inside the virtual world of the OASIS. Check out the new Ready Player One trailer below!

Based Ernie Cline's debut novel, Ready Player One is set in a dystopian world where nearly everyone spends a majority of their time in a virtual reality system known as OASIS, where players can visit any conceivable world (allowing the book to mash up an incredible number of '80s pop culture references). With the new footage, fans were given a better look at the world of OASIS, as well as some blink-and-you'll miss it moments from the film.

Earlier this year we got a small peek into the world of 2045 OH where Wade Watts (played by X-Men Apocalypse's Tye Sheridan) escapes his bleak world through the OASIS, a virtual world where he joins an elaborate treasure hunt. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday.

Warner Bros. Pictures has now released a new trailer for Spielberg's adaptation that, like the Ready Player One San Diego Comic-Con teaser from this past summer, is packed with shiny visuals, as well as cameos by famous "80s and '90s pop cult icons that reside within OASIS".

Ben Mendelsohn also stars in the movie along with Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller and Hannah John-Kamen.
