READY PLAYER ONE: STEVEN SPIELBERG IS DIRECTING THIS SCREEN ADOPTION OF ERNEST CLINE’S BESTSELLER - A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON
German release date: 5. April 2018
The movie is set in 2045 in a chaotic world on the brink of collapse. Yet the people find relief in the gigantic virtual reality world called OASIS, which the genius but eccentrical James Halliday (Mark Rylance) created. When Halliday dies, he releases a video, in which he challenges the users to find an Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.
That is the beginning of a battle, that keeps the entire world in check. A young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) finds the first signs, and he is already in a neck-breaking, reality-changing treasure chase through an equally fantastic and mysterious universe full of discoveries and dangers.
