In a special live event broadcast from the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Austin, Texas, author Ernest Cline debuted the first trailer for Ready Player One.

Ever since we found out that Cline's popular science fiction novel Ready Player One was getting an adaptation by Steven Speilberg way back in 2015, we've been waiting for this very moment. OK, so that moment will come in March 2018. But for now, the new trailer for the film is here.

Earlier this year we got a small peek into the world of 2045 Ohio, 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. The film also stars Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and T.J. Miller.

Check out the trailer below:

Wow. The trailer includes more scenes from the OASIS, an epic soundtrack, and more insight into Wade's life. We're ready to go.

Prior to the trailer's release, Warner Bros. also released a new poster for the film. Cline pointed out similarities to another Spielberg film.

Ready Player One will be in theaters March 30, 2018.
