Mumbai: Join unlikely hero Wade Watts as he gears up to save OASIS - an immersive and expansive virtual world like you’ve never seen before! HBO and HBO HD bring you an adventure blockbuster directed by sci-fi maestro Steven Spielberg, with a gaming world that’s more real than reality. Fasten your seatbelts for ‘Ready Player One’, premiering this Sunday, 26th May, at 1pm and 9pm, and presented by Panasonic, Fitbit and Mahindra XUV 5OO.

Based on Earnest Cline’s eponymous 2011 novel, the movie explores a virtual universe called OASIS, created by billionaire Professor James Halliday. Living in the dystopian future of 2045, everyone logs in to the OASIS daily to escape their mundane reality. Upon his death, people receive a cryptic message from Halliday, calling for a worthy heir to solve a series of intricate puzzles, collect three keys, and claim both his vast fortune and ownership of the OASIS. Eighteen-year-old Wade Watts enters with a mission to find an Easter egg hidden inside this massive game. Will Watts and his friends – collectively known as the High Five – win this reality-bending treasure hunt and save the OASIS? Will they survive, as the real and virtual worlds collide and head towards war? Tune in to find out!

The film, with its nostalgic 80s vibe, neon pop colours and a futuristic tone, infuses life into a fantasy gaming world that makes a viewing experience like no other for fans. Much to the delight of ardent movie-buffs, Steven Spielberg weaves in interesting pop-cultural references about time travel and more. The film boasts of an epic soundtrack, created by Grammy award-winning composer Alan Silvestri, which also includes classic and iconic 80s tracks by artists like Bruce Springsteen, Tears for Fears, Bee Gees and more.

HBO and HBO HD will bring the enthralling universe of ‘Ready Player One’ only on HBO and HBO HD, on Sunday, 26th May, 1pm and 9pm.

A thrilling virtual ride such as this is only best complemented with a dose of virtual fun. Check out HBO India on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to know more about the super cool activities for #ReadyPlayerOneOnHBO, for fans!
