Warner Bros Pictures (via Empire Magazine) has revealed a first look at Olivia Cooke’s character Art3mis. We saw a brief glimpse of her in the trailer that was released as San Diego Comic Con this year, but this picture gives us a more up close and personal look.
In the novel, Art3mis is a famous female gunter and blogger. Wade/Parzival has a huge cyber-crush on her, which is complicated by their competition in search of the egg that Halliday left behind. Her real name is Samantha Evelyn Cook, but her avatar name is what really comes to define her after naming herself after the Greek Goddess of the Hunt.
Ready Player One is based off of Ernest Cline’s novel of the same name.
The film stars Tye Sheridan as Wade Owen Watts/Parzival and Mark Rylance as James Donovan Halliday.
The official synopsis is below:
Set in the 2045, Parzival plays a virtual reality game entitled OASIS. The game is a way for him to feel like he actually matters in this dark, gritty world and he is one of the many who seemingly spend their time this way.
OASIS was designed by Halliday and the player who can uncover the Easter eggs left behind by Halliday first, wins.
