The book that pulled me back into reading over a year ago, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, is being adapted for film. The first trailer just appeared on the internet and at first glance it did a great job capturing the world as it’s described in the book.
Without giving away any spoilers, the story is about a teenager in a futuristic setting where everyone is connected to a virtual reality called “Oasis”. This alternate world is where the population’s daily activities take place until one day a treasure hunt of epic proportions changes everything.
There’s been a lot of hype surrounding this movie since it was announced that Steven Spielberg would be directing it and I can’t wait to watch it later this year. In the meantime, check out the book if you haven’t already.
Ready Player One is due to come out on 30 March 2018 in the UK, US and Australia.
