“The first player to get ready”: from geeks, about geeks, for geeks

Steven Spielberg rarely makes movies lately. But it seems as if the project” the First player to prepare ” (Ready Player One) was created for him. It is an action-adventure, steeped in nostalgia for the end of the twentieth century-the time when the adventure genre was ruled by Spielberg films.

The basis of the film adaptation was the novel of the same name by Ernest Kline, and Kline also worked on the script of the film. The story tells how in 2045 the world, which has hardly survived fuel, economic and other social crises, hides from the harsh reality in the virtual reality. This fake world called OASIS was created by James Holliday (mark Rylance, “Spy bridge”, “Dunkirk”), who is compared to Steve jobs in terms of influence on humanity.But, like jobs, Holliday is not eternal-however, he, unlike the prototype from Apple, had no heirs and left a special will: somewhere in the OASIS hid the “Easter egg” (a secret left by the developers, usually not related to the main concept of the game).

A long time ago, Sony bought Marvel rights to everything related to “spider-Man” as a character, including the villains who got in his way. One of these villains (although it is more correct to call him an antihero) was venom-symbiote, which even lit up in the last “spider-Man” from Sam Raimi.Bearing in mind, apparently, the success of the brutal Fox releases – “Deadpool” and ” Logan — – Sony decided to bet on blood. However, still inscribed it in the framework of the rating PG-13, so as not to lose a profitable audience in the form of teenagers. Continue reading
