Ready?! I'm Mashing the Start Button!!
Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) introduces us to the immersive virtual reality world known as the OASIS, which truly is a world of pure imagination. The use of Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka soundtrack to overlay the new trailer is wonderful and fitting. I truly can't wait for this movie. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it's difficult. Is it the end of March yet??!
For those who haven't read the book (hopefully very few of you at this point) - The OASIS was created by an eccentric programmer named James Halliday. Following his death, the entire world sets out on a virtual reality treasure hunt for an Easter egg he hid somewhere within the program. Whoever finds the egg not only wins a massive fortune but gains control of the entire OASIS, and before long, Wade finds himself wrapped up in a massive battle with real-life consequences.
Here's the new trailer
James Halliday, founder of Gregarious Games and creator of the OASIS, has died at the age of 67. Halliday was a game designer and tech visionary who made an unparalleled impact on the industries of gaming, entertainment, and technology; many might argue that Halliday, together with his former business partner Ogden Morrow, combined all of these industries into one.
