Synopsis:
OASIS is a virtual world where your avatar "where every desire known to your collective unconscious can be lived out" (The Age). The creator of this worldwide phenomena suddenly dies and bequeaths the ownership of his multi billion dollar company to the winner of a 3 golden egg hunt. After 5 years, no one has found the first egg! Corporations are now investing in large gaming floors hoping an employee will crack the challenge and they're competing against a world full of hopefuls. Wade and his avatar Parcival go deeper into the universe of the game creator to find clues amongst a barrage of pop culture references culminating in an epic battle for love & triumph.

Reviews
"...this adaptation of Ernest Cline's 2011 novel can be seen as the capstone to his (Spielberg's) brilliantly unscrupulous career." The Age

"The movie is crammed with excitement and good humour, from a rampaging King Kong to an orc with an attitude to an elaborate dip into "The Shining."" New York Daily News
