This weekend has a lot of huge trailer reveals. We just got some teasers for Alita: Battle Angel and the animated Spider-Man movie, and now we have one hell of a trailer for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One.

Here's the official description:

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.


The first trailer alone was already chock-full of easter eggs and references, but this new one gives us a better look at some characters that will make cameos like Harley Quinn and Joker, Tracer from Overwatch, Chun Li from Street Fighter, and a freakin' Gundam.

I haven't read the book, but I am definitely pumped for this film. Hopefully Steven Spielberg's magic touch will make this one a timeless classic.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.
