Ready Player One Trailer: See Steven Spielberg’s First Sci-Fi Adventure in Years


Tucked among all the superhero offerings today at Warner Bros.’ big Comic-Con panel was the trailer for Ready Player One, which welcomes director Steven Spielberg back to the sci-fi genre over a decade later. Based on the Ernest Cline novel, the movie casts Tye Sheridan as a virtual-reality player who’s intent on finding a hidden fortune left by game guru Mark Rylance. Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, and T.J. Miller co-star in the movie, which will be out next March (even as Spielberg currently shoots a new film, The Papers, that will come out even earlier this winter). Will Spielberg find the virtual-reality setting to be as high-stakes and murderous as Jessica Fletcher once did? Stay tuned!
