Warner Bros. Pictures has released the explosive full-length trailer for Stephen Spielberg’s upcoming blockbuster Ready Player One. Check it out here!
Recently we expressed why Ernest Cline’s film adaptation of Ready Player One is one of our most anticipated films of 2018. The trailer begins with Tye Sheridan’s Wade Watts navigating his way through the bleak trailer towers of Columbus Ohio in 2045 before escaping the dystopian landscape into the virtual reality he calls home. As well as being visually stunning, the Oasis throws you head-first into the action and the struggle between good and evil.
Just like the book, the trailer bombards you with wave after wave of pop-culture references from the 80s and early 90s, from Blade Runner to Dungeons and Dragons. But of course, as the tale is set in 2045, sci-fi fantasy characters and settings that are relatively new to us now, are a source of nostalgia to characters playing in the future.
On the front lines in the battle against Ben Mendelsohn’s army of Sixers, we see Overwatch’s Tracer, Street Fighter’s Ryu, and Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft. Spielberg’s choice to include these characters introduces a whole new generation of fans to Cline’s creation and seeing them fight side by side against the threat of evil left us yelling with excitement at our screens.
This trailer is a feast for the senses and leaves you gripping the edges of your seat as Wade and his comrades-in-arms fight tooth and nail for freedom, along with the help of some unexpected friends.
