Comic-Con Ready Player One Trailer
Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One (2018) movie trailer from the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con International stars Hannah John-Kamen, T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Tye Sheridan, and Simon Pegg. Ready Player One‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Ernest Cline, “In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines–puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win–and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.”
This may be Steven Spielberg’s must ambitious film in years regarding technology and VFX on display. I am not familiar with the book that this film is based on. What I mean by that is – I have not read the book yet.
From what I have read and researched, Ready Player One has a rabid fan following. The book was first published in 2012 and
received an Alex Award from the Young Adult Library Services Association division of the American Library Association and won the 2012 Prometheus Award.
From what is in the trailer, Columbus, Ohio and presumably all of the United States, is over-populated to the point where people are literally living on top of each other in improvised ghettos called “Stacks.” “Stacks” look like Mega Blocks from Dredd expect completely unorganized with no rhythm or reason to their individual construction.
The short film La Caja de Pandora is very much like Ready Player One except it takes the Ready Player One concept one step further. The real world of La Caja de Pandora isn’t just run down like in Ready Player One, its nearly toxic. People stay jacked in all the time and have feeding tubes and catheters inserted so that they can live their lives on the inside of a computer generated world.
Ready Player One doesn’t seem to be grim and gritty like that. Instead, a world has been created via OASIS where the lack of realism in the computer generated effects makes sense. From that perspective, the CGI in Ready Player One is not just a plot point, its a tool.
Ready Player One also stars Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Kae Alexander, Ralph Ineson, Julia Nickson, Letitia Wright, Armani Jackson, Kiera Bell, and Jacob Bertrand.
Ready Player One‘s screenplay was written by Ernest Cline, Zak Penn, and Eric Eason.
