So that you don't get stuck, these are 5 films about the Metaverse World that you must watch!

 Lately, the Metaverse is being discussed by many people. Since Facebook changed its name to Meta, a lot of people have started to find out what exactly is the Metaverse? In short, Metaverse is a digital world where humans can perform various activities virtually.

Before the Metaverse boom as it is now, some of these films have already carried the Metaverse theme. Curious? Check out the full details below, come on!


Taking the time setting in 2154, this film tells the story of the condition of the earth being dying due to an energy crisis and forcing humans to rack their brains to find new energy sources. Until they find Pandora, an Earth-like planet that has a valuable energy source called Unobtainium. Greedy humans also have to fight the natives of Pandora, namely the Na'vi tribe.

To avoid conflict with the Na'vi tribe, humans also created a program called Avatar. A program where selected humans can control the genetically modified Na'vi tribe through their minds. In this film, AR (Augmented Reality)/VR (Virtual Reality) is used to turn humans into animated forms that look real.

Ready Player One

The condition of the world in 2045 is on the verge of collapse due to overcrowding, air pollution, climate change, and rampant corruption. Until a virtual reality world called OASIS appears as a community escape from the fatigue of the real world.

Not long ago, the creator of OASIS died and left an easter egg in OASIS. Whoever manages to get it will gain full rights to control the OASIS.

A teenager named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is determined to get the easter egg and his adventure in the virtual world begins. This film shows the real world and the virtual world coexist as it is today.

Memories of The Alhambra

You could say, until now Memories of The Alhambra is the only Korean drama that carries the Metaverse theme. This drama tells of an investment company CEO named Yoo Jin Woo (Hyun Bin) who begins his adventure in Granada, Spain. Jin Woo's goal in coming to Spain is to buy an AR game made by Jung Se Joo (EXO's Chanyeol), an introverted programmer.

Unfortunately, Jin Woo didn't manage to meet Se Joo because the man suddenly disappeared. This drama presents the development of technology for super-sophisticated VR games.

Alita: Battle Angel

Taking the background in 2563, the condition of the earth looks very destroyed due to war. It is said that there is a scientist who rebuilds a broken cyborg and is named Alita. Cyborg Alita wakes up without knowing who she really is and decides to go on an adventure and regain her lost memories.

The process of making Alita's film itself uses Performance Capture which gives Alita's body, weight, and real expression. This technology makes virtual roles more detailed and perfect.

Free Guy

Tells the story of a bank teller named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who is an NPC or non-player character in the Free City game. Unfortunately, this game will be closed and Guy realizes that he is an AI (Artificial Intelligence).

Together with other characters, Guy also fights to defeat Antwan Hovachelik (Taika Waititi) who is suspected of having stolen the rights in the game. Using VR technology, this film has elements similar to the games Grand Theft Auto and Fortnite.

Apart from being a reference for fun spectacles, you can also understand more about the Metaverse. Which one are you interested in watching first?
