Ready Player One is a movie that it based on the book of the same name by Ernest Cline. The story takes place in 2045 where people spend most of their time in a virtual world known as the OASIS. When the creator of this virtual reality dies, a video is released that challenges all OASIS users to try to find an Easter Egg that he has hidden within it; the finder of which will get all of his fortune. But, that was 5 years ago.
If you are interested at all in the 1980’s or just nerdy pop culture in general, then this movie is a must see. The book was one of my favorites of all time and I am hoping that this film can live up to it. It being in Spielberg’s hands makes me somewhat optimistic, as he directed a lot of the movies that this story revolves around.
Ready Player One comes out on March 29 to most theaters in Ann Arbor.
