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.
