Posted by
In 2045, pollution and overpopulation ruined life on Earth. As a way out of their lives in decaying cities, people immerse themselves in the virtual world of OASIS. When the creator of this platform dies, a fierce competition begins to find an object that he hid in a game. Who finds it, will control OASIS and the billionaire legacy left by his owner.

Steven Spielberg is behind one of the most anticipated projects this year. Ready Player One is not a movie of great locations, as 60% of the film takes place in the virtual world. Still, here are some of the most relevant Filming Locations for this critically acclaimed blockbuster:

Where is Ready Player One set
Most of the real world was filmed in Birmingham (England), although the movie is set in Columbus, Ohio. You can pass the night at the Hatters Backpack Hostel (pictured), that appears in several sequences of the film.
