Watch Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One" trailer

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 17:05:48 +0000

Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Warner Brothers released the first official trailer for Steven Spielberg's futuristic adventure flick, Ready Player One, on Sunday.

The clip, loaded with nods to previous sci-fi classics, including King Kong, Back to the Future, and Lord of the Rings -- and even the 1989 romantic comedy Say Anything -- is set in Columbus, Ohio in the year 2045, where a boy, Wade Watts, escapes his dull life by jumping into a virtual universe called the OASIS.

The world's creator -- who has since died, reveals an Easter egg hidden within OASIS that, if found, will earn the user his half-a-trillion dollar fortune and total control of the universe.

Meanwhile, Van Halen's 1984 hit, "Jump," plays underneath.

Ready Player One -- starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance -- is slated to open March 30.
