Ready Player One Details Revealed

Published

on

Steven Speilberg’s live-action adaption of Ready Player One is almost here. The movie is based on the pop culture filled 2011 novel by Ernest Cline. In the book, an ex-genius tech CEO James Halliday sets up a quest for users of the OASIS to find all of the hidden keys to winning his fortune. Halliday’s love for the 80’s fills the Hunt for Halliday’s Eggs as players search the endless worlds to find clues.

Speilberg spoke to EW about life in the OASIS for characters.  “There are so many more compelling reasons to escape into the OASIS than exist in real life,” Spielberg tells EW “A lot of our movie is a comparative study: Which world would they rather spend their lives in — with all the distractions and complexities and perks of the digital world of the OASIS, or with the responsibilities of being a student or a parent living in real life? It’s real life versus virtual life. Which is more compelling?”

Olivia Cookes provided even further details on why people choose the VR world of OASIS in 2049.

“We’re starting to see people are more locked into their phones than looking up and interacting with people,” Cooke says. “In 2045, there is world famine, there is world war, and the cost of a plane ticket, travel, and of living life to a high standard in reality has gotten so exorbitant that the only form of escape for them is to log into an alternate reality. “

Tye Sheridan who plays Wade Watts also spoke about the difference between his avatar character Parzival and Wade.

“[Parzival] is a bit more confident than Wade. It’s a nice little contrast between who he is in the OASIS and who he is in the real world,” the actor says. “When we first meet Parzival, he wins the first race and his avatar becomes this celebrity within the OASIS. But [Wade] is an outcast and an underdog in the real world, and no one knows that he’s actually Parzival. It’s almost like a Clark Kent thing, where he’s someone super, but no one knows about it.”

Ready Player One 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

New Tomb Raider Shows Off Lara Croft’s Backstory

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. The film will feature a younger version of Lara Croft focusing on her first adventure as the Tomb Raider.

Warner Bros. has also released the officially plot:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.  Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class.  Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.

Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.  But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.  Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.  If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb.

Tomb Raider comes to theaters March 2018.

Kendrick Lamar Eyeing $40 Million Dollar Publishing Deal

Published

on

Kendrick Lamar is on top of the world right now. Not only did he perform at the CFB championship game, he also is slated to open up for the Grammys. 2018 is already starting out as the best year ever for Kendrick, but he can add to that with a new publishing deal.

According to Billboard, Lamar and TDE are listening to offers now that Lamar is done with his Warner Bros deal.

Top Dawg Entertainment, which manages the rapper-songwriter, is considering offers between $20 million and $40 million. The value would depend on the terms of the deal. One bidder has offered $28 million, a source tells Billboard, while another source cited a $23 million offer that included $11 million upon signing. Such offers would likely be for Lamar’s entire catalog, but the terms Lamar’s camp is seeking weren’t clear.

Last year, Kendrick had total album sales of 1.13 million units, as well as 2.63 million track sales, according to Nielsen Music. His album consumption units (album sales plus track equivalent albums plus streaming equivalent albums) tallied 4.135 million units.
