Captivating Sci-Fi movie that got the gaming lingo right

A very contemporary movie by Steven Spielberg. The vision of our collective obsession with the social media & devices and an alternative reality where we live in that simulated environment is captivating and chilling.

This is based on a Sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline.

The first time Steven Spielberg and Simon Pegg have worked together post The Adventures of Tintin (2011).

The role of Wade Watts/Parzival played by Tye Sheridan was initially considered to be played by Nick Robinson, Nat Wolff, and Dalton Vaughn.

The character F'Nale Zandor was not part of the book and was created for the movie.

The role of Art3mis played by Olivia Cooke was initially considered to be played by Elle Fanning and Lola Kirke.

This is Steven Spielberg's first science fiction feature since War of the Worlds (2005).

Michael Keaton was considered to portray the role of J.D Halliday.

Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, Peter Jackson, and Edgar Wright were all considered to direct this film initially.

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg who himself is actually mentioned in the original novel by Ernest Cline that the film is based on.

Gene Wilder was approached by director Steven Spielberg, who wanted him to appear in the film before his untimely death. But Gene Wilder declined the offer.

The date of the film was postponed to March 30, 2018, from December 15, 2017, to avoid competition with Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Initially, the music score was going to be composed by longtime Steven Spielberg collaborator John Williams.

John Williams due to scheduling conflicts working on another Spielberg film, "The Post" left and Alan Silvestri took over the music project.

This was the only the third film where Spielberg did not collaborate with John Williams.

Steven Spielberg in an interview said this was the third most difficult movie he has made in his career, behind Jaws and Saving Private Ryan.

"Ready Player One" is a phrase from the days of classic video games.

Ready Player One has three cast members from the award-winning series Game of Thrones.

Wade Watts mentions that his name sounds like a superhero's name, like Peter Parker or Bruce Banner.

The casting call for the lead role of Wade Watts was advertised in early 2015 on major casting and media websites in search of unknown talent.
Filming End Date:
27 Sep 2016
