VAN HALEN's classic song "Jump", the lead track from the band's "1984" album, is featured in the new trailer for Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One" movie. "Jump" is VAN HALEN's biggest hit, having reached the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed for five weeks.
Based on Ernest Cline's bestseller, "Ready Player One" will be released on March 30, 2018. Set in 2045 when the world is on the brink of collapse, it stars Tye Sheridan ("Mud", "X-Men: Apocalypse") as Wade Watts, a young man who decides to join the contest to find an Easter egg placed in the virtual reality universe of OASIS by its eccentric creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance from "Bridge Of Spies"). The film also stars Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller and Simon Pegg.
Written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, the film is produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah. Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman served as executive producers.
