  • Ready Player One trailer revealed

Comic-con teaser for Ready Player One. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

"It's the most incredible flash forward and flashback at the same time - to a decade I was very much involved in as well as a future that I think is out there awaiting all of us whether we like it or not", Spielberg said. Set in a dystopian future where people escape to a virtual reality network called the Oasis Wade Watts searches for an "Easter Egg" in the hope of winning a valuable fortune that will allow him to escape his impoverished life within "The Stacks".

"I grew up watching this man's movies and studying them", said Cline.

Anyone who loved Ready Player One the novel did so partly because of all the '80s pop culture references contained therein, but it would be impossible for the film to cover them all.

The 70-year-old director now sees VR as the opening of new possibilities, where humans are able to do "anything you can possibly imagine".
