First Ready Player One Movie Picture

First Ready Player One Movie Picture

The first still from Steven Spielberg’s movie adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One has now been released in an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly.

The image shows Tye Sheridan as the protagonist Wade Watts – otherwise known as Parzival – in his van hideout from early in the story. The novel was published in 2011 and features a group of young friends searching a persistent VR universe for clues in a quest through worlds packed with 80s nostalgia. The film is scheduled to release 30 March next year.

We expect more information to come out of this week’s Comic-con 2017.


Steve has been a games journalist on and off since the first PlayStation made games ‘cool’, but he’s never forgotten the thrill of finding a Space Invaders machine in the wild. Neuromancer is one of his favourite books and The Matrix is one of his favourite movies, so he’s been ready for VR all his life.
