Ready Player One trailer: Diving deep into virtual reality

There is just over a month to go until we get to see Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One novel and the final trailer for the film has now been released for you to pour over.

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.

Also starring in the film will be Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, and Lena Waithe with Ernst Cline and Zak Penn on screenwriting duties.

You can catch Ready Player One in UK cinemas on March 29th.
