Based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller * of the same name, the film version was also a hit in the cinema, with production costs of 175 million dollars at a respectable 582 million dollars. Netflix subscribers who may have missed the film in the cinema or who may even see it again and again and discover new things should watch it (again) quickly. Because:

That’s what Ready Player One is all about

In the year 2045, the lives of many people on the rundown earth will largely take place in the OASIS – a virtual world invented by the ingenious and eccentric programmer James Halliday (Mark Rylance), which has more to offer than the gloomy reality.

Because the one who is the first to master all the challenges, beckons not only wealth, but also control over the OASIS. It won’t be easy for Wade and his new friends, including Art3emis (Olivia Cooke) and Aech (Lena Waithe), but they won’t give up – and neither will the unscrupulous CEO Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn), who absolutely wants OASIS want to tear under the nail …

Thrilling blockbuster cinema

For us, “Ready Player One” is absolutely thrilling blockbuster cinema, despite small narrative weaknesses, in which nerds and geeks of all generations can probably discover more pop cultural allusions than in any other film.
