Steven Spielberg is a very busy man. He’s recently finished shooting Ready Player One for release early in 2018. While that film is in post-production, he’s making The Papers with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, which is due out around Christmas.
Now we’ve got our first look at Ready Player One, via EW.
The movie is based on Ernie Cline’s novel. Here’s the synopsis: ‘In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines—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 always been so desperate to escape.’
Tye Sheridan, TJ Miller, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg and Olicia Cooke star. It’ll be in cinemas during March 2018.
