First look at Spielberg's nostalgia fest.

Ernest Cline's bestselling novel Ready Player One is riddled with nostalgia for '80s American pop culture, so who better to bring it to the screen than the director who shaped so much of that culture, Steven Spielberg.

Coming to UK/ROI cinemas March 30th 2018, Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, and practically every '80s property you can imagine.

The official synopsis reads:

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
