“Ready Player One”, Stephen Spielberg’s newest creation is already showing big numbers at the Box Office. The virtual reality flick opened Wednesday night in more than 3,500 locations bringing in $3.75 Million. It’s now showing in well over 4,000 theaters.
“Ready Player One” is based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller by the same name. The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos. The people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe. When the creator of OASIS dies, he leaves his vast fortune to whomever finds a digital Easter egg hidden in the OASIS. This sparks a contest that grips the entire world. We follow the film’s young hero played by Tye Sheridan as he joins the treasure hunt.
