Ready Player One is being released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on 6th August 2018.

If you can’t wait that long, the critically acclaimed movie will arrive on Digital Download slightly earlier on 23rd July 2018.

Ready Player One comes from filmmaker Steven Spielberg and it’s based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name. The film stars Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) and Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One – A Star Wars Story).


In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spend their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the OASIS to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—known as the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world.

Ready Player One also stars Lena Waithe (Master of None), T.J. Miller (Deadpool), Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki, Hannah John-Kamen (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Simon Pegg (Star Trek) and Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies).

Directed by Spielberg, Ready Player One features a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline.
