Steven Spielberg & Tye Sheridan Open Up About 'Ready Player One'!

Ready Player One‘s Tye Sheridan is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, out on newsstands on March 30.

Here’s what director Steven Spielberg and Tye had to say…

Steven, on the meaning of escapism: “Escape has its pleasurable and medicinal place, but total escape should not be a destination.”

Steven, on the nostalgia of the movie: “The movie isn’t really about nostalgia. Nostalgia is only the window dressing – out your side windows, but the movie takes place out your windshield. It’s a race. It’s a competition for control of the OASIS.”

Tye, on the deeper meaning of the OASIS: “I think it points a finger at this image we feel we have to live up to or strive to be. I think a lot of people, especially a lot of kids right now, are struggling with being themselves and embracing that, embracing who they actually are and coming face-to-face with what that means.”
