Once of 2018's most anticipated films, Ready Player One, looks to be a visual spectacle. The film's trailer, viewable below, features a plethora of vibrant scenes along with a cast of classic figures from the halls of sci-fi and geek culture.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One is based off of the novel of the same name by Ernest Cline. The story follows Wade Watts, a teenage boy who lives an underprivileged life at home but thrives as a digital warrior in an online matrix known as the OASIS.

The creator of the OASIS made a game out of it when he died: whoever manages to "beat the game" will gain control of the entire OASIS. To become the victor, a user must be well-versed in sci-fi and geek lore in order to figure out the puzzles presented by the game.

In order to win the game, Wade needs to rely on the help of figures ranging from the Iron Giant to Overwatch characters. Watch the trailer below to see just how over-the-top this game of geeks really is.
