First READY PLAYER ONE Photo Has Emerged!

First READY PLAYER ONE Photo Has Emerged!”

Ahead of a big unveiling at San Diego Comic-Con next week, the Steven Spielberg-directed Ready Player One has unveiled the first photo from the adaptation. If you're not overly familiar with the source material, Ready Player One takes place in the year 2044, where reality is, ultimately, a very ugly place. It was originally scheduled to be released at the end of 2017 but was moved to avoid a clash with Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The movie also stars Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, TJ Miller, and Ben Mendelsohn.

In the photo, Wade has on his VR gear, including haptic gloves. Whoever solves the series of pop-culture quests will win the OASIS and its parent company Gregarious Games. It was created by the late James Halliday (played by Mark Rylance, an Oscar victor for Bridge of Spies), who left a series of pop culture puzzles for OASIS users.

Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. From the main plot line to little Easter eggs scattered throughout, Cline's book is a huge love letter to '80s pop culture. And so the race against the clock begins as the game could become locked away from its player or possibly made too expensive to play if acquired by the corporate IOI organization.
