Based on Ernest Cline’s popular novel, ‘Ready Player One’ is Steven Spielberg’s latest sci-fi masterpiece to grace the big screens.

The movie is set in a dystopian future, a time when the world is on the brink of an economic collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an elaborate virtual reality universe. When its creator dies, he leaves all his fortune to the first person to find an Easter egg in the OASIS, which sparks a contest that grips the entire world.

Ready Player One has opened to a massive response by the audience worldwide. Well, except India. Because Warner Bros has apparently cancelled all its screenings due to the distribution issues.

Warner Bros India tweeted, “We are excited that fans are enthusiastic about seeing Ready Player One, and we are working towards increasing more screen options.” But even the few screens that were available for the shows on Friday and Saturday have cancelled their screenings. What’s worse is that a lot of people found out about this after they had reached the theater.

And obviously, people who have been waiting for Ready Player One in India are extremely furious at Warner Bros for their last minute decision to pull out.

According to the reports, it’s either because of the limited screens available due to the release of big Bollywood movies like Baaghi 2, Hitchki and Raid. Or because, as usual, Hollywood film is having a hard time acquiring certificate from Indian censor board. Thanks, CBFC.

Although, there hasn’t been any official announcement by WB yet, but it’s likely they are going to release ‘Ready Player One’ next to ‘A Quiet Place’ on 6th April.
