Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
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 spends 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-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.Written by
During the closeup of Halliday in his coffin, he has quarters over his eyes from the year 1972; the same year the book's author, Ernest Cline, was born. See more »
While researching Karen Underwood Morrow's death, Wade views two different newspaper obituary clippings side-by-side. Much of the text in both is identical, but the left one says, "Mrs. Underwood was Fifty Six years old at the time of her death," while the right one states, "Mrs. Underwood was Fifty Nine years old" in the same sentence. (59 is probably the intended age, as the right-hand article also shows "1975 - 2034" in the headline.) See more »
