Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One (Movie Trailer)
The film is based on Ernest Cline’s novel — a book that’s been recommended to me many times as one of the best depictions of virtual reality and gaming in fiction. (Sorry, I still haven’t read it!)
One of the story’s main elements is a virtual world called OASIS. What we see of OASIS in the trailer might not feel terribly visually distinctive, but it certainly looks fun and flashy, throwing together a hodgepodge of pop culture references.
Spielberg discussed the film at Comic Con, where he described it as “the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time about a decade I was very involved in, the ’80s, and a flash-forward to a future that is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not.”
