READY PLAYER ONE
back to the Future!
Better brush up on your ’80s trivia before submerging yourself in Steven Spielberg’s action-packed ode to popular culture. Based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller, Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan as a teen living in 2045, where virtual reality is now used for everything from entertainment to teaching. He teams up with Olivia Cooke’s Art3mis for a treasure hunt set by the head of the VR company’s deceased genius (Mark Rylance), and the ensuing adventure is bursting with cameos from the likes of Freddy Krueger, the DeLorean and the Iron Giant. “I hope the movie returns all of us to the awesomeness of the ’80s,” Spielberg has said. Us too.
