From Cyclops to Parzival; First Look at Tye Sheridan in Ready Player One
Entertainment Weekly gives us our first look at Ready Player One’s protagonist Wade Watts played by Tye Sheridan, who also played Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse.
We’ll tell you one thing, the man does love his visors.
Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Ready Player One gets its game on when it opens on March 30, 2018.
