Thanks to those lovely folks over at EMPIRE we’ve got our first look FINALLY at Ready Player One gunters At3mis face to face with Parzival.
If you missed the trailer that was revealed at SDCC, never fear, we’ve got you covered:
We EVEN have a detailed breakdown of the myriad of easter eggs hidden within the trailer that you may haven’t noticed, but our crew of hardcore Gunters (DOWN WITH I0I!!) caught:
Anyhow, Ready Player One the film is being adapted by Steven Spielberg from the original book by our pal Ernie Cline, and it couldn’t be happening to a nicer guy. If you’ve never read the book, do yourself a favor and fix that RIGHT NOW. An ode to all things 80s, “RP1” is a retro futuristic gamer’s adventure with the bestest soundtrack ever. No really, you can even listen to Ernie’s official companion spotify channel while reading.
The big news today is that EMPIRE released the first image of Tye Sheridan as Wade “Parzival” Watts and Olivia Cooke as Art3mis meeting face to face:
Speaking to EMPIRE, Cooke says the experience was something approaching a virtual dream come true. “It felt like pure adventure,” the Me And Earl And The Dying Girl star tells us. “It was Willy Wonka, it was Indiana Jones. When you’re a kid wanting to be an actor, the idea of working with [Spielberg] sounds absurd. It was surreal.”
Starring Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Wade Owen Watts aka. Parzival, Ready Player One centers around a video game contest wherein the contestants are forced to compete for the inheritance of the creator of OASIS – the massive online simulation that serves as the playing ground for the competition. Littered with dozens of pop culture references that served to define Cline’s original novel, the first Ready Player One trailer debuted back at San Diego Comic-Con this year. However, as said teaser did not feature an appearance by Cooke as Art3mis.
Ready Player One is set to hit theaters on March 30th, 2018 after a push back from an original release date of December 2017.
