Ready Player One Author Ernie Cline Confirms He's Writing A Sequel

Ready Player One Author Ernie Cline Confirms He's Writing A Sequel

Yes we're all really excited about Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, and yes the new trailer is brilliant - but we can't concentrate on all that when there's another issue staring us right in the face. Cline noted in 2015 that he had written a couple of outlines for a potential sequel, but hadn't started writing the book at that point. In the year 2045 cities have become overpopulated, polluted and corrupted.

From Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment, Ready Player One opens March 30, 2018.

Within the world of the OASIS, a nostalgic scavenger hunt is underway, with the victor receiving control of the virtual world as well as half a trillion dollars. However, when Oasis creator James Halliday dies and reveals that he's left an Easter Egg for Oasis players to find in the game, an all out war ensues as players seek to retrieve the Easter Egg in order to inherit half-a-trillion dollars as promised by Halliday. Why this shiny new poster they also just released which has the internet rolling on the floor from too many LOLs; what is going on with Wade Watts' one leg? The trailer features appearances from characters from Overwatch, Tomb Raider, Battletoads, Batman, The Iron Giant, Chucky and Gundam.

First, you'll see King Kong on top of a skyscraper swatting away the planes that are circling him.

Apple is buying audio recognition app Shazam
The ability to identify a song from within Apple Music or iTunes would make listening an even more seamless experience for users. But the company has had to adapt to the rise of streaming services - including Apple's own Apple Music .

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.

We aren't sure if the heroes will have their special abilities but if they do you'll be in for a treat.

Also starring Simon Pegg and T.J. Miller, it's out across the United Kingdom on March 30, 2018.
