Renowned American filmmaker Steven Spielberg is opening this week with his first movie Ready Player One for the year 2018. Steven has in the past produced big time box office and award winning movies. He is a legend in movies especially in the Sci-fi and adventure genre.
Steven has been in the scene for more than four decades producing movies that brought the world to her knees in the areas of directing, special effects, casting etc. In the 70s, Spielberg produced Jaws, a 1975 movie classic which was followed with Close Encounters of The Third Kind in 1977. In the 80s, the Indiana Jones era started with Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981 and the popular E.T movie was produced in 1982 amongst others.
Ever since, Spielberg has been producing award-winning movies that have exceeded more than $9 billion making him to be the highest grossing director in history. In 2018, it is this new movie that starts the year for Spielberg.
Ready Player One is an American science fiction adventure film, produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, and written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on Cline’s 2011 novel of the same name. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance.
The film is set in the year 2045, when much of humanity, escaping the desolation of the real-world, uses the virtual reality software OASIS to engage in work and play. Wade Watts (Sheridan) discovers clues to a hidden game within the program that promises the winner full ownership of the OASIS, and joins several allies to try to complete the game before indentured players working for a large company, run by Nolan Sorrento (Mendelsohn), can do so.
Let us see if this movie can displace Black Panther as the highest grossing movie in 2018 which sits at $638 millon now.
