Wade Watts is ready to save the Oasis in the latest Ready Player One poster.
This poster is a do-over from the original poster. The first poster depicted star Tye Sheridan climbing the stacks with his leg stretched like Mr. Fantastic.
Peter Shipper is the artist behind this one-sheet, which pays homage to the work of Drew Struzan. Struzan crafted posters for Big Trouble In Little China, Blade Runner, Coming to America, and Back to the Future in an age with no Photoshop — and actor Tye Sheridan is thrusting his fist in the air with the zeal of Marty McFly.
Set 30 years in the future, the film finds the majority of the population taking refuge in a virtual-reality system called OASIS. It provides a nostalgic paradise after the rest of the world that has fallen to overpopulation, pollution, corruption — specifically ’80s nostalgia, thanks to the eccentric creator James Halliday’s (Mark Rylance) childhood affinity for the decade. When Halliday dies, he leaves his massive fortune up for grabs to whoever can solve the elaborate scavenger hunt he has hidden within OASIS, which is where our story begins. Tye Sheridan plays the plucky protagonist who is one of millions who embark on the scavenger hunt, while Olivia Cooke is the expert OASIS player Artemis, his foe and friend.
Steven Speilberg directs Ready Player One. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, TJ Miller, Lena Waithe, and Mark Rylance
Ready Player One is set to arrive in theaters on March 30, 2018
