Steven Spielberg has a habit of making films that stick with us. This next entry from him seems to be another film with that potential. Based on the short story of the same name Ready, Player One seems to be as timely as it is epic.
Set in the near future in an America which is facing a massive problem of over-population, young people are escaping to a virtual reality world called the Oasis. As explained in the trailer, one can be anyone they wish in this virtual world. The trailer boasts some eye-popping visuals and some Easter eggs of some famous characters (look closely for Harley Quinn, Deathstroke and the Iron Giant).
I am going to go on record and say that this film not only perform well at the box office, but be critically well accepted at the same time. After all, we live in a world where people want to spend more and more time in a virtual world and less time among the living. You can view the trailer for yourself below:
