Warner Bros. Pictures finally released a trailer for “Ready Player One,” a new sci-fi action-thriller coming to theaters in March 2018. Before today’s trailer-screening Dreamworks, Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. have been pretty quite about the film. The three studios made a joint-announcement back in August that the film would premiere in December, but it took until this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con for fans to get a trailer. Luckily for fans the wait is over, and you can watch the first official trailer for the upcoming epic below.
Three-time Academy Award winner, 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 film is being produced by Spielberg; Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner; Dan Farah; and Spielberg’s longtime colleague Kristie Macosko Krieger; with Bruce Berman serving as executive producer. De Line and Farah originally brought the project to Warner Bros. Among the star-studded cast bringing the film to life are Hannah John-Kamen, T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Cooke, Tye Sheridan, and Kiera Bell. You can watch the first official-trailer below.
“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. Artificial Intelligence,” in addition to producing the hits “Gremlins” and “The Goonies.” A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures, “Ready Player One” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
While the trailer is awesome, fans will still have a long wait before the film hits. “Ready Player One” is scheduled to release on March 30, 2018. Other big hitters releasing that month are “Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time” from director Ava DuVernay, and “Tomb Raider” starring Alicia Vikander.
