Ready Player One coming to a home cinema near you in August
Warner have announced the UK release of Ready Player One for 6th August on DVD, Blu-ray1, 3D Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray. A digital VOD release is scheduled for release a couple of weeks earlier on 23rd July.
In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spend their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the OASIS to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—known as the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world.
The Blu-ray releases of the film will include the following extras:
- Game Changer: Cracking the Code
- Effects for a Brave New World
- Level Up: Sound for the Future
- High Score: Endgame
- Ernie & Tye's Excellent Adventure
- The '80’s: You’re The Inspiration
The DVD release will just contain the last one of those.
4K owners can take advantage of both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound, the latter of which is also available on the 3D Blu-ray.
