March is getting closer and closer and with it so is the release of Ready Player One. The hotly anticipated film is really starting to generate buzz amongst cinema goers. Capitalising on the buzz Warner Bros. has released two new pieces of artwork to promote the film.
First up we have a new banner prominently featuring lead actor Tye Sheridan has Wade Watts straddling the two worlds of the film: ours and the OASIS.
Second up is a new theatrical poster featuring the films full cast. This one is filled with references to 80s movies and Spielberg movies alike. We dare you to try and pick them all out!
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.
