San Diego Comic-Con 2017: First Trailer for Ready Player One

The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One has debuted.

The futuristic tale, based on Ernest Cline’s classic book, introduces us to Wade Owen Watts, who puts on a VR headset and enters the OASIS, where a digital Easter egg left by the late James Halliday leads to a worldwide contest to find it first.

The trailer is packed full of 80’s throwbacks and references, with the more eagle-eyed of you out there sure to have a field day spotting them all.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg and TJ Miller. It is due to be released on 30 March next year.
