Warner Bros. has dropped the first teaser trailer for Ready Player One during their Hall H San Diego Comic-Con panel, and it’s glorious.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, the big-screen adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel Ready Player One stars X-Men: Apocalypse's Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts/Parzifal, as well as Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and T.J. Miller.
Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.
Ready Player One opens on March 30, 2018.
