The battle for the real world starts in the virtual.
The first Ready Player One trailer was all about the shock and awe of seeing all the different licensed properties on one screen. The second, gave us a back story of the world which we will be dipping into. This newest trailer is all about the fight. And we get to see that the battle doesn’t just take place in the virtual world, but in the real (well, as real as a movie can get) world as well.
The official synopsis,
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. 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 decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
