by , Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Veteran filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s cash registers are ringing whoosh and whoosh. His sci-fi thriller 'Ready Player One' has raked in an enormous $53.2 million at the box office over the 4 day Easter weekend within North America.

'Ready Player One' is Steven Spielberg’s best opening in 10 years.

According to trade analysts, the movie wasn’t going to be much of a success because of its star-cast Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke who are not quite popular and also the story plot that goes like, "teenagers in a dystopian future search for treasure inside a virtual-reality world called the Oasis was exceedingly difficult to explain in marketing materials."
