Dean on the Scene at AwesomeCon 2018. Ready Player One was just released in theatres last weekend and the Ready Player One Time Machine is here! Check out my interview with its creator, Jon Miller of NJ Time Machine. Go to facebook.com/njtimemachine for more information on the Ready Player One Time Machine!
In a dystopian future, most people try to escape their pitiful real lives by entering a cyberworld called The OASIS. When the OASIS’ creator dies, he sets in motion an Easter egg hunt with the winner gaining his fortune and complete control of the OASIS.
Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) and four fellow gunters (Easter egg hunters) team up to beat corporate monolith Innovative Online Industries (I.O.I.), fronted by the slick Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) – who has hundreds of experts behind the scenes, feeding him information and taking hits in the games – to the prize.
In 2045 the world is 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.
The SDCC 2017 trailer for Ready Player One is unique. Enjoy.
