Steven Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One premiered at last weekend’s 2018 SXSW to an audience that was interested to see the legendary Hollywood director’s feature film. Check out a quick synopsis of the film below:
Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), [who] spends his days living in the virtual reality of the OASIS. After OASIS founder James Donovan Halliday (Mark Rylance) passes away, Wade is one of several to embark on a quest to find a hidden Easter egg within the OASIS in an effort to inherit Halliday’s immense fortune. The villainous Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) is also hot on the egg’s trail for his own interests.
Screenrant reports that while the movie received some criticism from the audience, reports are generally positive, and Spielberg has “the master hasn’t lost his touch for grand Hollywood spectacle”.
Ready Player One will premiere on March 29, 2018.
