Ready Player One, the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, is getting turned into a movie by none other than Steven Spielberg, who is directing the film. As the movie’s March 2018 release date approaches, a new trailer, ‘Dreamer’ debuted this week.
Ready Player One follows the story of Wade Watts, an orphan whose life is centered around a virtual reality metaverse called Oasis. As it turns out, the creator of the Oasis has hidden a key which controls the entire metaverse, leading to a mad dash among users to find the key and assume control.
The latest trailer overviews the central conflict in the movie (as trailers these days always seem to do), and briefly explores the Oasis.

Set to debut widely on March 29th, Ready Player One has already seen preview screenings, and seems to be faring reasonably well with critics thus far, with Rotten Tomatoes reporting an aggregate score of 79% ‘Fresh’ among critics at the time of writing.
Author Ernest Cline previously confirmed that a sequel to the Ready Player One novel is in the works.
