Tye Sheridan & Olivia Cooke Debut 'Ready Player One' Footage at Comic-Con!

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the Steven Spielberg directed movie Ready Player One and it's filled with loads of pop-culture references.

Presenting his new film Ready Player One, Spielberg spoke about the challenges of adapting Ernest Cline's book about a dystopian future where humans take refuge in VR after the world is destroyed by global warming.

Here's a synopsis: Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. But, Steven Spielberg not only had a talent search.

"It was like the most awesome flash-forward and flash-back at the same time", Spielberg said. The trailer shows a look inside the world of Oasis including colors, lasers and pop culture references.

Presenting his upcoming sci-fi film at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday, the acclaimed director addressed what has recently been a recurring topic for him.

New Bank of England £10 note revealed, watch how it is made
The new £10 note follows the polymer £5 note, which has been in the middle of controversy due to its manufacturing process. The Bank of England has praised the new notes for being waterproof and having enhanced security features.

"I grew up watching and studying the films of this man and the student", for its part, said Ernie Cline.

Citizens can live an entire virtual-reality life inside the OASIS, complete with schools and currency.

"And you can do anything in that world-anything you can possibly imagine".

The silver lining is that the screenplay for "Ready Player One" was written by Cline himself, who has stated he was largely influenced by "The Last Starfighter" and "WarGames". From Disney's The Iron Giant to seeing players fight the King of Nightmare, Freddy Krueger - Ready Player One is shaping up to make 2018 a very entertaining year for movies.
