Ready Player One: The global bestseller and now a major Steven Spielberg movie
About this deal
Just like anything that's awesome... People are going to sit down and give you an opinion. In Ready Player One's case... It's all about how the movie differs from the book. In the movie, she leads a resistance group against the evil IOI Corporation, which wants to seize control of Oasis so it can be massively monetised. Actor Olivia Cooke, best known for her role in the horror TV drama Bates Motel, adds charm and depth to the character. She is given a life outside Wade’s yearning. Wade recalls the moment when he heard about the death of James Halliday, the creator of a multiplayer game named the OASIS. The ordinary TV broadcast was interrupted with a short film entitled Anorak’s Invitation, in which Halliday recites the “highlights” of his will. He transforms into Anorak, his OASIS avatar, and announces that he’s hidden an Easter egg in OASIS. The first person to find it will inherit his entire fortune and estate. He recites the first clue about the Easter egg’s location, and wonders aloud if he’s made the hunt too difficult. He announces the beginning of the hunt, and the video ends.
It’s not surprising to have a story about a dystopian future where people prefer the virtual world, to the real world. It s surprising that the story goes out of its way to spell out that God is as big a fantasy as the Easter bunny. Also unnecessary to the story is the large amount of cursing, and the detailed section on masturbation. The apparent theme of”live in the real world “ is all but lost through all the glitz and glam of the virtual world. Adults on the other hand will love it for all of the 80’s references and the references to classic fantasy and sci-fi. Newitz, Annalee (August 16, 2011).

Wade is the embodiment of me as a teenager,” Cline admits. “The structure of Ready Player One was a fun way for me to take all of the useless movie and video-game trivia you amass if you’re a geek and somehow make it valuable – the key to a vast fortune, which it has proven to be for me.”Ready Player One sequel: Everything you need to know".
