1. “Ready Player One”

Steven Spielberg is back and this time it’s big. He goes all in on a new science fiction action adventure about a high-stakes virtual reality-based contest in a universe filled with mystery and danger. The film is an adaptation of the popular novel “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline. Spielberg told ScreenRant that the movie is “a cautionary tale but also an exhilarating adventure.” He goes on to say the ’80s “had a refreshing lack of cynicism, and in our story, that’s what people are trying to return to. In their real lives, they’re living in a debris field of the first half of the 21st century.”
