039;Ready Player One' Trailer Shows Steven Spielberg's Tale About Virtual Reality

The first footage from Steven Spielberg's forthcoming thriller Ready Player One has been released onto the internet. His adaptation of Ernest Cline's wildly popular novel will have plenty of references, but hopefully, it'll have a lot more going for it than a trip down nostalgia lane.

While the trailer doesn't delve too deeply into Ready Player One's plot, it does showcase the film's incredible CGI and special effects work.

Released today at Comic-Con, the trailer for Ready Player One is absolutely insane. On his heels is Nolan Sorrento, Ben Mendelsohn's corporate apparatchik from rival tech firm IOI, who will do anything to win control of this property - including eliminate people in the real world.

That final scene, that big race, is not in the book. Sure, he's floundered a touch with the DOA The BFG and I can't say I was immensely taken with Lincoln, but it's this genre where his vision truly shines. In case it's not yet obvious, before watching this trailer I had little to no idea what Ready Player One was and without the synopsis above I honestly still wouldn't. John Williams was initially attached, but his commitment to another Spielberg film, The Papers, created a scheduling conflict.

If granted parole, OJ Simpson could be moving to Florida
The commissioners will hear arguments before deliberating off-camera to reach a decision, according to the board's website. Following his retirement, his celebrity status catapulted him to movie stardom and a cushy Brentwood, California, mansion.

What do you guys think of the trailer? I'm so excited to finally see something from this, and I still can't believe Spielberg is actually directing.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30th 2018 after getting pushed back from its initial December 15th date (to avoid The Last Jedi).

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse.
