Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel Ready Player One is really close now – so close that we now have a “final” trailer.
Complete with a haunted take on Willy Wonka’s Pure Imagination, we knew that the movie would be jammed with pop culture Easter eggs that’ll have those people who make lists going nuts, but now we see even more of them – plus, Mario Kart reference!
If you’re not up with the story, Ready Player One is set in 2045, where a virtual reality experience called OASIS is all the rage. Its creator has just died, but he’s left behind a video that teases of an Easter egg being hidden somewhere in the vast virtual world. Find it and his massive fortune – and control of OASIS – will be yours. The superheroically-named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan, aka the X-Men’s Cyclops) is the one to find the first clue, and the race to unearth the egg intensifies dramatically.
Ready Player One hits Australian cinemas on March 29. Here’s that trailer…
