About Ready Player One
From Steven Spielberg comes the action adventure READY PLAYER ONE, the much-anticipated big-screen adaptation of the groundbreaking bestseller by Ernest Cline.
In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia know as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within the confines of this digital world, puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win - and confront the real world he's been so desperate to escape.
READY PLAYER ONE is being directed by Steven Spielberg, who is also producing the film with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn with Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance.
