‘Ready Player One’ is an upcoming sci-fi fantasy movie based on the award-winning novel by Ernest Cline and it could be the next big thing.
If you have absolutely no clue what so ever what this movie will be about, imagine Westworld mixed with a splash of The Matrix, but honestly still quite different than that.
The book is set in 2044 and gives the story of Wade Watts, one of the millions of geeks worldwide who live their life through plugged in to a realistic alternate-world Virtual Reality simulator called the OASIS. When the creator of the OASIS James Halliday dies, he leaves a video in his will that the billions in fortunes of the OASIS and the rights to the universe itself will go to the person who finds the meticulously hidden Easter Egg in one of the thousands of worlds in the OASIS. Upon searching for it, competitors must solve riddles from Halliday himself, many of which contain hidden 1980’s trivia questions. Wade Watts sets his eyes on finding the Egg along with millions of geeks, along the way he meets both friends and enemies and faces many trials and tribulations.
This book has everything from tragedy to funny moments and financial struggles. It’s a race between good and evil and a boy who’s a celebrity in one world and a strange unapproachable geek in the other – but nobody knows who he is.
