Get ready to enter the OASIS as Steven Spielberg brings Ernest Clyne's epic, sci-fi fantasy nostalgia-fest of a hit novel to the big screen.
Set in a dystopian 2045, Ready Player One sees the young Wade Watts (Mud and X-Men: Apocalypse star Tye Sheridan) escape the bleakness of the real world though a virtual-system called the OASIS - a pop-culture wonderland where you can race around in classic vehicle's like the Back To The Future DeLorean or the 1960s Batmobile, battle with Freddy Krueger and Jurassic Park's T-Rex, and inhabit the worlds of your favourite movies, games and TV shows.
When James Halliday (Mark Rylance, The BFG), the creator of the OASIS dies, he creates a treasure hunt to find an Easter Egg in the OASIS, with the winner getting control of his digital wonderland.
Wade sets about trying to find this Easter Egg, facing tough competition, not only from fellow gamers, but from the wonderfully named villain Nolan Sorrento (Rogue One's Ben Mendelsohn) and his evil corporation IOI.
Once again the groundbreaking Spielberg breaks new ground, upping the ante of visual effects and motion-capture technology to create an immersive world that you'll be desperate to play in.
Ready Player One opens on Friday 30 March.
