The film stars Tye Sheridan, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, Lena Waithe, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki, Hannah John-Kamen, Susan Lynch, and Ralph Ineson.
Colin Hart and Scott Davis were players one and two on the carpet this evening, here’s how they fared:

When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
