Win Tickets to the READY PLAYER ONE Premiere Screening in LA!

Are you a diehard fan of Steven Spielberg? Are you champing at the bit to see the movie adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One? Have you always dreamed of attending a massive Hollywood movie premiere? Well, you’re in luck because we’re partnering with Penguin Random House to give one (1) lucky winner and a guest a whole bunch of Ready Player fun with a trip to Los Angeles to attend the premiere screening of Ready Player One on March 26, 2018.

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the action adventure Ready Player One, based on Ernest Cline’s #1 NY Times Best Seller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.

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.

If you haven’t read the book, don’t worry—there’s still time to pick up a copy to catch up before the film hits theaters on March 29, 2018. Plus, you can get even more in-depth commentary on Ready Player One by rewatching our Alpha Book Club episodes, in which our panel of nerdy experts dissect Cline’s bestselling novel in detail.

In order to enter our contest, simply click here and sign up for the Nerdist newsletter, which will deliver all types of geeky goodness directly to your inbox. One lucky winner and a guest will be flown to Los Angeles, get a two-night stay in a hotel, and receive two tickets to the premiere screening of Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. Unfortunately, this contest is only available to United States citizens, but I’ll happily share my popcorn with you if you’re visiting from outside the U.S. another time.

And even if you don’t walk away with a trip the premiere in Los Angeles, you will have a chance to win sweet prizes every day next week.
