Enter the Oasis in New Trailer for ‘Ready Player One’

New Poster!

Earlier this year, coinciding with San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled the first official trailer for Ready Player One – the upcoming Stephen Spielberg-directed adaptation of the popular Ernest Cline novel. While that trailer gave us a good sense of the bombastic virtual world of the OASIS, the latest trailer for the film goes a bit more into the story, while also working in plenty of science fiction and pop culture references.

With a screenplay written by Zak Penn (Alphas) and author Ernest Cline himself, Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Wade Watts – a teenager who sets out on an adventure to find an “Easter Egg” planted in the virtual world of the OASIS by creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance) following his death, which would guarantee whomever finds it half a trillion dollars and complete control of the OASIS.

In addition to Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts and Mark Rylance as Halliday, the film also stars Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One), Simon Pegg (Star Trek: Beyond), and T.J. Miller (Deadpool).

Check out the official second trailer for Ready Player One below, which features a slew of 80s pop culture references from Back to the Future to Voltron, all set to the tune of “Jump” by Van HalenReady Player One is set to release in theaters March 20, 2018.
