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, 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.

Where was Ready Player One filmed

Steven Spielberg is behind one of the most anticipated projects this year. Ready Player One was filmed in England, and 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 of this critically acclaimed blockbuster:
