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

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage Series

Published

on

It looks like Luke Cage is the latest Marvel Hero to get canceled.

Netflix announced they would be canceling the series just a week after canceling Iron Fist. “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and the streaming service said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

The second season had Luke Cage embracing his fame after the events of Defenders until Bushmaster played by Mustafia Shakir shows up to claim Harlem. Bushmaster wanted control of Harlem’s gangs, something that not only puts him on Luke’s to-punch list, but also in the crosshairs of Mariah (Alfre Woodard,) who has consolidated her control of Harlem and isn’t interested in interlopers. Fortunately, Luke isn’t without backup, as Misty Knight (Simone Missick) has a bright shiny new robot arm to beat up goons with.

Luke Cage was one of the best shows on Netflix, its sad day that creative difference between the higher-ups means no show for the fans.

Showtime released the official trailer for their limited dark comedy series, Black Monday.

Created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl), who will serve as executive producers and showrunners, Black Monday also boasts Emmy nominees Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Superbad, Future Man) as executive producers; they also directed the pilot.

“It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.”

Cheadle plays a fast-talking, cocaine-toting stockbroker who declares in the trailer, “I am black Moses and I am going to put the ‘brother’ in Lehman Brothers,” while Rannells’ character declares, “I’m gonna become the biggest swinging dick on Wall Street.”

The trailer, soundtracked by Lil Wayne’s “Uproar,” captures the excess that comes with a healthy market and the dramatic fall from financial grace that arrived on Black Monday. The series’ pilot, directed by Rogen and Goldberg, premieres on Showtime on January 20th.
