In the newest trailer that premiered Sunday morning, we're introduced to a dystopian future in which the human population is at an all-time high, strangling the world's cities and forcing everyone to build up instead of out, creating precariously-crafted apartment towers that house the residents of the year 2045. Since then we've seen some photos, but others, the marketing campaign has been pretty low key. 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. While Wade works with several friends from the OASIS to discover Anorak's treasure, the corporate giant Innovative Online Industries (IOI) employs a number of players to try to discover the treasure first and seize control of OASIS for themselves.
The latest trailer for the movie offers the best look yet at the OASIS, with the most complete look at Sheriden's virtual avatar Parzival.
There's a good chance you'll find more than a couple of well-known characters from either games or movies in Ready Player One's trailer.
Steven Spielberg directs the '80s-themed adaption of the Ernie Cline novel. The film also stars Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and T.J. Miller. When Halliday dies, he leaves his vast 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.
