To celebrate today’s UK release of Steven Spielberg’s pop culture odyssey, Ready Player One, based on the bestseller from Ernest Cline, join us for these two new featurettes.

Set in 2045, Ready Player One, sees a 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.

Joining Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse, Mud), Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Bates Motel), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One – A Star Wars Story, Bloodline) and T.J. Miller (Deadpool, Silicon Valley), with Simon Pegg (the Star Trek movies, the Mission: Impossible movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, Dunkirk) round out the cast.

The Story and The High Five featurettes look at the world and characters created by novelist Ernest Cline and brought to life by director Steven Spielberg, exploring the motivations and goals of those chasing Halliday’s egg and ultimate control of the OASIS.
