Before he disappeared, he decided to bequeath his vast fortune to anyone who discovered the digital Easter egg he had made sure to hide in the OASIS. The lure of profit causes global competition. But when boy Wade Watts, who does not have the profile of a hero, decides to participate in a treasure hunt, he is immersed in a parallel world that is both mysterious and disturbing.

The feature film was a success with critics (rated 4 out of 5 stars on AlloCiné) and audiences (viewer rating 4.2/5) and grossed over $583 million at the international box office.

Ready player one

The film adaptation of Ready Player Two is still in the early stages and it is still unclear who will replace the Oscar-winning director of Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan as director.

What is Ready Player Two about?

The story of “Ready player two” takes place just days after Wade Watts won a contest organized by James Halliday, founder of the OASIS. The latter discovers, hidden in Halliday's vaults, a technological advance that will once again change the world and make the OASIS a thousand times more wonderful – and more addictive.

This progress is accompanied by a new enigma and a new quest from Halliday, which promises a mysterious reward. Wade will then have to face an unexpected, incredibly powerful and dangerous rival who will not hesitate to kill millions of people to get what he wants. Wade's life and the future of the OASIS are once again on the line, but this time the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.

Although it climbed to the top of the best-seller list The New York Times after release, a novel by the authorErnest Cline it did not receive the same critical reception as the first volume. Critics actually complained that the work failed to excite as much as the previous one and that the references mentioned were too vague.

Steven Spielberg for his part, should soon set up a mini-series about Napoleon. The director announced this in February 2023 at a press conference organized during the International Film Festival in Berlin. The first in his career!
