Ready Player One SXSW details, plus Clark Kent promo
In anticipation of the March 29 release of Steven Spielberg’s new action adventure, Ready Player One, attendees at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference and Festivals can step into the immersive Ready Player One Experience with VIVE VR. A two-story, city block takeover of Brazos Hall, the event runs from Friday, March 9, to Sunday, March 11, and will showcase the sights, sounds and atmosphere of the film, including exciting virtual reality (VR) content from HTC VIVE. Check out more Ready Player One SXSW details below, along with a new “Clark Kent” promo for the film!
The Experience begins from the outside, where the exterior of Brazos Hall will be transformed into the Stacks, the vertical trailer park where people live in the real world of 2045. Upon receiving their personal RFID wristband, guests will enter the venue through Wade Watts’ Van, the hideaway of the film’s young hero, and, from there, be transported into the OASIS, where the real action begins.
The first floor of the Experience is chock full of things to do:
Level up to the second floor of the venue, where visitors will find themselves in the Stacks.
In addition to all the happenings in Brazos Hall, Atom Tickets will be outside offering an opportunity to purchase advance tickets to the film on Atom. Those who do are able to jump ahead in line to enter the Experience.
