Unlike some filmmakers, the good news if you aren't a fan of Steven Spielberg's latest film, another one is right around the corner. Three-time Academy Award victor, Spielberg ("Schindler's List", "Saving Private Ryan") directed "Ready Player One", which is based on Ernest Cline's bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon ($10 at Amazon).

The book, and the movie recreating it, are about a virtual reality called the OASIS and one teenager's journey (Sheridan) to discover and Easter Egg there whose discovery will grant him a small fortune and control of the simulation.

Following the sneak peek from Comic Con, the new trailer focuses on the contrast between overpopulated Columbus, Ohio in 2045 - where Ty Sheridan's protagonist lives in "the Stacks", a towering city of mobile homes - and "the Oasis", a paradise of endless possibilities where society goes to escape. But for now, the first trailer for the film is here.

One person who is still missing from the film's trailers is Simon Pegg, who plays Halliday's best friend and co-creator of the OASIS, Ogden Morrow.


"Ready Player One" marks a return to Warner Bros. for Spielberg, who previously directed the studio's "Empire of the Sun", "The Color Purple" and "A.I".

Several times in Steven Spielberg's prolific career, he's released two films within a few months, like "Jurassic Park" in June 1993 and "Schindler's List" that December.

Ready Player One will be released in theaters on March 30, 2018.

Earlier this year we got a small peek into the world of 2045 OH where Wade Watts (played by X-Men Apocalypse's Tye Sheridan) escapes his bleak world through the OASIS, a virtual world where he joins an elaborate treasure hunt.
