Running time for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One unveiled

The running time for Steven Spielberg's new blockbuster Ready Player One has been unveiled. 

Starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and T. J. Miller, the movie, which is based on the best-selling novel by Ernest Cline, sees Spielberg working from a script from Zak Penn.

The film is a lengthy one and will clock in at 139 minutes and 49 seconds, or just under two hours and 20 minutes. It is released into UK cinemas on March 29th. 

Ready Player One is set in the near future and is focused on a young outcast named Wade Watts. Watts, like most kids of his age, spends a lot of time playing and talking to friends in a massively multiplayer online game called 'The Oasis'.

But, when the game's billionaire founder James Halliday dies, he offers players his fortune as the prize in an Easter egg hunt within The Oasis, leading Watts to try and get in on the action, only to find himself facing some terrifying competition.
