Audiences can enter the OASIS in March.

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, inviting viewers to step into a world of pure imagination filled with plenty of references to 80s and 90s pop culture. The upcoming movie will hit theaters on March 29, 2018.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
