Ready Player One Extended TV Spot and Contest
Warner Bros. has released an extended movie TV commercial and a contest for Ready Player One (2018). The Ready Player One promo features almost all new footage from the film. There are pieces of footage in the extended commercial that fans of the book, on which the film is based, that will make those people smile, especially the footage from the third act of the film. Elements of the film have certainly been aggrandized from their book incarnation.
The Ready Player One contest is based on the central contest in the book, the hunt for the three keys, and the prize, billions of dollars and control of the OASIS. The contest offers three prizes for three lucky winners. The special part of the prizes is that they will be valid until 2045 (that’s 27 years), the date the book and the film takes place in.

- Jade Key: Spotify – Win codes for 27 years’ worth of Spotify Premium.
- Crystal Key: Lyft – Let Lyft take you where you need to go until 2045.
Ready Player One‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Ernest Cline, “The film is set in 2045, with the real world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But people have found salvation in the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday died, he left his immense fortune, and total control of the OASIS, to the first person to win three keys, unlocking the door to a digital Easter egg he hid somewhere in his seemingly infinite creation. His challenge launched a game that gripped the entire world, but after five years the scoreboard remained tauntingly empty…until now.
An unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan)—under his avatar name, Parzival—finally conquers the first contest, instantly becoming a celebrity…and a target. Ruthless corporate mogul Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) proves he will stop at nothing to beat Wade and take over the OASIS, and suddenly the virtual stakes are all-too-real. Ultimately realizing he cannot win alone, Wade joins forces with his friends—now the High Five (Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki). Together, they are hurled into a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.”
