Steven Spielberg explores a dystopian 2045 and a pop culture-laced virtual reality world called the OASIS in the first full trailer for Ready Player One, the director's big-screen adaptation of Ernest Cline's cult novel.
Nevertheless, the book has been a bestseller with Steven Spielberg adapting it, so perhaps it's no surprise that Cline is working on a sequel. Here's a brand new trailer for the upcoming movie. It chronicles Wade Watts' (played by Tye Sheridan) quest of finding an esteemed easter-egg left behind by technologic genius James Halliday (Mark Rylance).
Ready Player One tries to prove March is not a boring month when it bows 3.30.18.
The film follows the story of a teenager who gets caught up in an adventure to save a virtual world known as the Oasis.
The OASIS was created by a programming mastermind and serves as a getaway for the youth of the future who are just looking for a place where they can be the most idealized versions of themselves.
Amazon Echo availability expands to 80 more countries
The new service could help appease record-industry executives who have pushed for more revenue from YouTube . YouTube Music Key came along in 2014, giving subscribers ad-free music videos.

That sum easily eclipsed the previous art record of $179m (£115m) for a Pablo Picasso work sold in 2015. The painting is called " Salvator Mundi " which is Latin for "savior of the world".
Amazon Prime Video now available on Apple TV
Both Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are available on Roku, a streaming stick not manufactured by tech industry behemoths. Scott Porch writes about the streaming-media industry for Decider and is also a contributing writer for Playboy .
No one could accuse Spielberg of repeating himself (he famously dislikes his own sequels and prefers fresh projects as much as possible), and the vibrant, anime-inspired and immersive 3D aesthetic here is unlike anything we've ever seen from him.
Whether the fact that Sheridan's character Wade Watts has a stupendously long leg is key to the plot - it's not mentioned in the book - we do have a little more insight into the movie, thanks to the latest trailer.
Without even trying, we spotted Chun-Li from Street Fighter, Tracer from Overwatch, and possibly Greybeard from Skyrim?
Ready Player One will be releasing in theaters on March 30th.
Cline had mentioned in 2015 that he had written several potential outlines for a Ready Player One sequel.
