“Extra’s” Mark Wright sat down with Steven Spielberg to get the scoop on his new sci-fi movie “Ready Player One,” based on the best-selling book.

The movie, starring Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke, is set in a future where people are on a wild hunt inside a virtual world called the Oasis.

“Ready Player One” is already getting buzz for its pop culture references… everything from the Iron Giant to the DeLorean from “Back to the Future” to Beetlejuice to Batman!
