We are inching closer to the marketing cycle for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of Ready Player One, and today Entertainment Weekly gave us the first look of Tye Sheridan, as the story’s hero, Wade.
Check out the image:
When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
This image definitely captures the image of the inside of the stacked mobile homes in Ernie Cline’s novel. Spielberg appears to have the visual side of the story down, what will be interesting is how he handles the pop culture references, which are basically the thread of the plot.
Along with Sheridan, Ready Player One stars T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Cooke, and new Spielberg muse Mark Rylance. It’ll be here March 30 next year.
