A new featurette explores Steven Spielberg's influence on pop culture.







Adapted from Ernest Cline's cult novel, Ready Player One draws heavily on the pop culture of the '80s, much of which was shaped by the film's director, Steven Spielberg, himself.

In a new featurette, Cline discusses Spielberg's influence on his book, while the director talks about his love of the book.

Ready Player One is in UK/ROI cinemas March 30th.


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.
