Watch the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's adaptation of 'Ready Player One'

Cline's novel is well known for including dozens of references to 1980s movies, including some of Spielberg's own films. It seems as if Ready Player One has some of the director's biggest action to date.

But Spielberg chose to take on the challenge anyway, spending two and a half years bringing author Ernest Cline's vision to life.

The trailer centers on star Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts, a teenage gamer who embarks on a thrilling treasure hunt in a video game called Oasis, designed by the eccentric James Halliday, portrayed by Spielberg darling Mark Rylance. We also got a glimpse of Watts' auto, the classic Back to the Future Delorean, Kaneda's motorcycle from Akira, and a handsome shot of Iron Giant from Iron Giant.

"I had started out as a screenwriter, and had been kinda frustrated by that, and that's what made me try being a novelist, so when I wrote 'Ready Player One, ' I kind of assumed it would never be a movie", he said.

Steven Spielberg appeared at Comic-Con on Saturday to debut the first trailer for "Ready Player One", his upcoming feature set within the world of virtual reality, and if the crowd response to the trailer is any indication he's got another hit on his hands.

The newest film from iconic director Steven Spielberg is shaping up to be one of his most magical projects to date.

"Ready Player One" is set for a March 2018 release. The story follows Wade Watts as he searches for an Easter egg that will forever change his life and the world. His cast and fans know this only too well - star T.J. Miller, late of "Silicon Valley", wore an E.T. shirt and Back to the Future shoes, honoring two of Spielberg's famed films.

Ready Player One also stars Hannah John-Kamen, Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Cooke, and Simon Pegg.
