It’s all about virtual reality!

Based on a book written by Ernest Cline in 2011, Ready Player One is the story of a young man called Wade Watts, who uses a computer programme called Oasis, for fun.


It’s set in the future!

The film takes place in the American city of Columbus in 2045. The city looks scary and run-down. No wonder Wade wants to escape into his computer game.


It looks amazing!

From what we've seen of the trailer, we wish we could pop those virtual reality goggles on and have a wander around the Oasis!


There’s some recognisable cars from old films and TV shows!

In the trailer, there’s a glimpse of the Batmobile, The A-Team’s van and the Delorean from Back To The Future. Awesome!


The storyline looks fantastic too!

Oasis creator James Halliday leaves a message offering a trillion dollars and ownership of the virtual world to anyone who can solve his puzzles – that's where the fun begins!


Hang on, isn't that...

Chun-Li from Street Fighter? Yes, it is. Well spotted! 


When's the film out, then?

Ready Player One won't be released until 30 March 30, so you'll have to make do with this amazing trailer instead. We can't wait!
