Ready Player One Original Book Trailer Review

The original book trailer for Ready Player One makes creative use of early gaming systems, television sets, and technology to create a visually interesting and compelling book trailer in the style of the 1980s. This is the original book trailer that came out in 2011, well before the movie. The music is perfectly chosen: vintage 80s tones that call to mind nostalgic video games.

Ready Player One Synopsis

In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.
