We got our first look at Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernie Cline's debut novel Ready Player One at Comic Con a few months ago, and now we're treated to a new trailer that gives us a better look inside the world crafted by the veteran filmmaker.
The film is set in 2045, where nearly everyone spends most of their time in a virtual reality system known as OASIS, created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.
The hero of the film, Wade Watts, enters the contest and begins a treasure hunt that takes him through a universe full of current and past pop culture references, sure to set off a treasure hunt itself in the YouTube comments section.
Enjoy the trailer above and look for the film to release in theaters on March 30, 2018.
