Ready Player One To Premiere At SXSW Tomorrow

There are even rumors that the entire film will be screened at the SXFW festival, though that has not been confirmed.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, an Amblin Production, a De Line Pictures Production, a Steven Spielberg Film, Ready Player One.

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: Impossiblemovies) and Oscar victor Mark Rylance (The BFG, Dunkirk) round out the cast. Based on Ernest Cline's novel of the same name, the movie stars Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke in the year 2045, when people can escape their harsh reality in an immersive virtual world where the only limits are one's own imagination.

Featuring a foreword from Spielberg and introduction from Cline, The Art of Ready Player One is an unforgettable journey into the OASIS and the creative minds that brought it to life. In OASIS, players adopt avatars and compete in contests.

On March 29, director Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated new film Ready Player One hits theaters. While many folks had already guessed that the Ernest Cline adaptation would be premiering at SXSW (it opens in theaters in a few weeks, has a major presence at SXSW already, and Cline is an Austin, Texas native), this is still an exciting announcement because it means we'll be getting the first reactions to the highly anticipated film in a matter of hours. We'll get our first read on the film Sunday, March 11th as the film will have its world premiere at SXSW starting at 9:30pm CST. The story concerns a game inside the VR world OASIS where players race to find an easter egg worth a fortune. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
