Ready Player One movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, is currently in production, and slated to premiere in spring 2018.
Ready Player One book is a 2011 science fiction novel by Ernest Cline in his debut. The story, set in a dystopian 2044, follows protagonist Wade Watts on his search for an Easter egg in a virtual reality game, the discovery of which will lead him to inherit a fortune in a world by an energy crisis. In 2012, the book received an Alex Award from the Young Adult Library Services Association division of the American Library Association and won the 2012 Prometheus Award.
In 2045, the planet is on the brink of chaos and collapse, but people find salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by James Halliday. In the OASIS anyone can be what they want. When Halliday dies, he promises his all fortune to the person who will first discover a digital Easter egg that’s hidden somewhere in the OASIS. When young Wade Watts joins the contest, he finds himself becoming an unlikely hero in a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical world of mystery, discovery and danger.
What they Say about the book
Ready Player One book was a New York Times bestseller. It was praised by such publications as Entertainment Weekly, The Boston Globe, The A.V. Club, CNN.com, io9, and Boing Boing, to name a few. USA Today wrote that the novel “undoubtedly qualifies Cline as the hottest geek on the planet right now. NPR said that the book was “ridiculously fun and large-hearted”. Cline “takes a far-out premise and engages the reader instantly” with a “deeply felt narrative [that] makes it almost impossible to stop turning the pages. Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote that “The book gets off to a witty start” but noted that it lacks at least one dimension, stating that gaming had overwhelmed everything else about this book. Rebecca Serle of The Huffington Post described the book as “the grown-up’s Harry Potter” and that it “has it all – nostalgia, trivia, adventure, romance, heart and, dare I say it, some very fascinating social commentary. ”
The book has been translated into more than 20 languages.
Cline said that his book had inspired designers at companies such as Oculus VR which recommended the book for their new employees. Oculus has also invited Cline several times to sign books and demo hardware.

The Ready Player One movie is still a long way off, but it was in development for years, even before Ernest Cline’s novel hit bookstores in 2011, they already had a movie deal in place. Building up towards productions, Steven Spielberg and company have been putting the pieces for the Ready Player One cast in place.
Any time Steven Spielberg directs a movie it’s a big deal and I don’t know how much the movie will be close to the book, of course he is a great director but difference between a movie and a book is something known by all. The book describes the story in great detail. I recommend everyone to read the original book once to experience the best of it because once the movie is made very few people will look back to the book and true essence of it will be lost.

Hollywood vs Anime
WHAT I FEEL
I have seen Hollywood stuff my entire life and its been three years since I got into watching Anime. I am a fan of both, but I’m going to take a side and write this post.
I prefer 2D animated characters more than actors or anything in real life. The reason for this is because I am a big fan of art. I love to see beautiful visuals, animation and I think this is what makes anime so special.
In Anime, you can show complicated action scenes and science fiction easily as compared to Hollywood.
Hollywood has science fiction but just compare them with Anime, you will find story, scenes, dialogues much more interesting. Talking about stories Anime presents and the concept they show is really different from any of those Hollywood movies.
Even the superheroes are way more different and their perception, sense of judgement and dialogues, all are different than those usual boring ones. Lately we’ve been buried in sequels of sequels to the point where it seems as if Hollywood doesn’t have original ideas anymore. Too many Marvel, DC movies alone. I like them but don’t they have anything better to offer? Just mixing up their movies and creating the same old content to earn money worldwide. Look at how many times Batman has been rebooted. Most Anime never sees a reboot unless they have something better than the old content. Take Full Metal Alchemist : Brotherhood and Hellsing Ultimate for example.
Anime series too end after a certain number of episodes, even if the number happens to be in 500s. When the story ends, it ends.
Hollywood may be tapping into comic books for stories, but American comic books lacks the diversity Manga enjoys. Anime is mostly derived from Manga, its comic book counterpart. Both Anime and Manga have a huge following in US, Europe and Asian countries and have influenced mainstream comic book artists in DC & Marvel. Not to mention that Manga is much more detailed than any comic book.
Hollywood does have legendary movies like Inception, Interstellar, Shawshank Redemption, Matrix etc but all these movies have better and beautiful counterparts in the Anime world. Christopher Nolan drew his inspiration from a surreal anime called Paprika for Inception.
There is one thing though. What I’ve observed is that Anime doesn’t tap onto Hollywood for any content or inspiration. Even if an Anime adapts a Hollywood movie with an interesting plot, it will be great to watch. Take Resident Evil for example, though its inspired from video games but compare Anime version with Hollywood ones. The animated versions are so much better. This is because live action has limitations that only CGI can get around. Animation on the other hand, doesn’t have any real world limitations. You can draw and animate anything you want.
If Hollywood tries to adapt an Anime, no matter how epic the plot is, it can turn out to be pretty bad. Dragon Ball Evolution, The Last Airbender, Netflix’s Death Note, Ghost in the Shell are some examples. The supernatural fight scenes don’t look as good in a Hollywood movie as in an Anime, that’s where Anime has the upper hand, THE VISUALS!
Sadly, most of the audiences still equate animation with children or with comedy. In my opinion Anime is at par with Hollywood in every genre. Try watching SEINEN anime to know how deep Anime can really be (for mature audience only).
If you think nothing can make you laugh as much as FRIENDS, give a shot to GINTAMA.
Watch CLANNAD or GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES to know how much emotionally broken a person can be. To be honest, my dad shifted my PC to the last room just because I used to cry like a little girl watching these shows.
Watch YOUR NAME (KIMI NO NA WA) if you are into love stories or slight romance genre. It is a Masterpiece!
Support what you like. I have seen both, horrible Anime and horrible live action movies. Best way to change this trend is to vote with our wallets. Tired of watching same superhero movies, stop going to see them in theaters. Tired of watching same high school Anime, stop buying their DVDs.
Use your money wisely and spend only on the ones which deserve your attention.
