Ready Player One will be released in theaters on March 29, 2018.

When a young man named Wade Watts (Sheridan) uncovers the first clue to the easter egg's whereabouts, he finds himself plunged into a unsafe adventure playing out both inside VR and in the real world.

The Art of Ready Player One (Insight Editions / April 3, 2018 / $45.00) created in partnership with Warner Bros. Based on Ernest Cline's novel, the screenplay is by Cline and Zak Penn. Bruce Berman will serve as executive producer.
