After the fiasco that was the collection of Ready Player One posters made to look like those of classic 80s movies earlier this week, the film’s promotional campaign has just about redeemed itself with this corker.

You can read the synopsis for Ready Player One here:

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse.  But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance).  When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.  When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Joining Tye Sheridan (X-Men: ApocalypseMud), Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying GirlBates Motel), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One – A Star Wars Story,Bloodline) and T.J. Miller (DeadpoolSilicon Valley), with Simon Pegg (the Star Trekmovies, the Mission: Impossible movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of SpiesDunkirk) round out the cast. Directed by Spielberg from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, Ready Player One was produced by Spielberg, Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah; with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman as executive producers.
