Ready Player One is a 2016 American animated science fiction action-adventure film produced by TjsWorld2011 Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies for Paramount Pictures. Based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Ernest Cline, it was the twelfth feature film from TW2011 Pictures, as well as its first co-production with Nickelodeon Movies since 2005's Tj's World: The Movie. Set in the year 2044, the film follows a contest between players in the OASIS virtual reality game, with its objective being to find three hidden keys to win the estate of the game's deceased creator James Halliday.

Paramount Pictures acquired the rights to a film adaptation of the book in 2013. TW2011 Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies later signed onto the project in early 2014, with production lasting from April 2014 to August 2015. The film was co-written and directed by TjsWorld2011 and co-written and produced by Ntpockets, and stars the voices of Andrew Garfield, Asleigh Ball, Evan "Vanoss" Fong, Ryan Higa, Adam Driver, Jason Alexander, and Stephen Kramer Glickman. It was also the first non-Disney traditionally animated film to be released widely in IMAX formats in over fifteen years.

Ready Player One premiered in San Diego on June 20, 2016, and was released in theaters, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 1, 2016. It received widespread acclaim from critics, who praised its animation, humor, and screenplay, and grossed over $203.8 million worldwide over its $36 million budget, making it the eleventh highest-grossing animated film of 2016 and the highest-grossing film from TW2011 Pictures. The film was later released on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on November 15, 2016.

PlotEdit

In 2041, international headlines are made after the death of James Halliday (Jason Alexander), creator of OASIS, an online virtual reality game that has grown to be used by most of humanity on a daily basis. In light of his death, a short film titled Anorak's Invitation is released, in which Halliday, under the guise of his OASIS character Anorak, posthumously announces he has hidden three easter eggs within the game, and that the first to find all three will inherit his entire fortune. A new subculture dedicated to this quest is born, its members known collectively as "gunters" (short for "egg hunters"), but quickly fades into obscurity.
