Ready Player One ‘Come With Me’ Trailer Focuses On Real-World Threat

Ready Player One is one of this year’s biggest films. Based on the novel of the same name from author Ernest Cline, the film seems like quite the departure from the source material, for better or worse.

While the book emphasizes the struggle of a select few to finish a scavenger hunt before a massive organization can, the film seems to be putting a hell of a lot of emphasis on a war between regular players and said organization. Diehard fans of the novel may not appreciate this change, but who knows? It actually may end up making for a more engaging film.

I’m willing to hope that that’s the case, but I’m a bit skeptical at some of the choices they have made — such as having players run around in the real world, instead of rigs at home. It feels largely impractical.

So while the film seems poised to succeed on an emotional level, I’m not entirely confident, and worry this could be a big disappointment.

The official synopsis for Ready Player One is below:

“The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.”
