Following its first official teaser this past December, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ready Player One.
The upcoming film is taken place in the year 2045, and follows Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), an unlikely hero in an expansive virtual reality universe dubbed OASIS, where he and anyone else can be whomever they want, however, they must protect their online lives from the evil Innovative Online Industries (IOI) company that wants to control OASIS and monetize it.
In this latest clip above, details about a war over the OASIS’s future is revealed, as shown in sequences with fights occurring in both the virtual and physical worlds. Additionally, more of the film’s best pop culture easter eggs are provided, as the trailer’s title Come With Me, is set to a slow cover of “Pure Imagination” made famous by Gene Wilder in 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Also starring Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance, Ready Player One hits theaters Thursday, March 29.
For more upcoming films, the ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ IMAX trailer is all-out monster mayhem.
