Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When the eccentric billionaire creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.

The story centers on a teenager named Wade Watts who escapes his bleak surrounds by logging into OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users lead idyllic alternate lives. Wade Watts is pitted against powerful corporate foes and several ruthless competitors who’ll do anything, in the Oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

Based on 2011 novel by Ernest Cline set in a not-too-distant future where advanced Internet, gaming and virtual reality technologies have changed the world as we know it and led to the creation of the Oasis, a virtual reality universe that people live in and value more than the real world.”
