Steven Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Final Trailer Is A Goosebumps-Inducing Spectacle

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the final trailer for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, a sci-fi action adventure based on the award-winning Ernest Cline novel of the same name. 

In the year 2045, much of Earth's population centers have become slum-like cities due to overpopulation, pollution, corruption, and climate change. To escape their desolation, people engage in the virtual reality world of the OASIS (Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation), where they can engage in numerous activities for work, education, and entertainment.

Wade Watts is a teenager from Columbus, Ohio who frequents the OASIS and attempts to win "Anorak's Quest", a game created by the recently deceased creator of the OASIS, James Halliday, in search of its Easter Egg. The winner is to be granted full ownership of the OASIS and Halliday's $500 billion fortune. While Wade works with several friends from the OASIS to discover Anorak's treasure, Innovative Online Industries (IOI), an evil corporation led by CEO Nolan Sorrento, employs a number of people known as Sixers to try to discover the treasure first and seize control of OASIS for themselves.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse), Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and The Dying Girl), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Mark Rylance (Dunkirk), T. J. Miller (Deadpool) and Letitia Wright (Black Panther).
