Ready Player One

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Steven Spielberg. 2018, 140 mins. 70mm. With Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance. The latest science fiction film from Steven Spielberg transports us to the year 2045, where the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anymore—the only limits are your own imagination. When Wade conquers the first challenge of a reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—a.k.a. the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS. Ready Player One is a visually audacious, culturally provocative work from award-winning collaborators Spielberg, cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan), production designer Adam Stockhausen (The Grand Budapest Hotel), and a visual effects team that was justly recognized with an Academy Award nomination.
