‘Ender’s Game’ Teaser Poster
We’re finally getting a glimpse at the official promotional materials for the highly anticipated Ender’s Game movie, hitting theaters in November. Enough with the words, and check it out!
The Ender’s Game movie has been through production hell for years and at long last the film is coming to fruition. Orson Scott Card’s beloved novel tells the story of a young boy named Ender and his peers who train at a space station in preparation for an imminent alien invasion. The story is almost more of a psychological thriller than it is an action or sci-fi, but perhaps that is what can make it different from contemporary action and sci-fi films.
As a fan of the series since my childhood, I speak for many when I say that I REALLY hope they get this one right. The film is being directed by Gavin Hood of X-Men Origins: Wolverine fame (or shame?), and was also written by him with the assistance of Card. Hood may not be the one to blame for the mediocrity of Wolverine, and to his credit, Tsotsi and Rendition are both very good movies. Working with a cast dominated by child-actors could be difficult, since they usually suck. But the lead actors seem like great fits for their roles, and with Harrison Ford to hold things down, we could be in for quite a ride. We’ll find out November 1st.
