Enders Game Movie Trailer & Movie Images

I've been waiting a long time for this to make its debut. It looks very promising in some respects but odd in others. I'm going to have a wait and see attitude with this one.  The book has always been a favorite among the wargame crowd at War And Pieces where I gamed in the 90's. I've been very reluctant to even blog about it. I don't share the author's views about life, the universe, or anything but I did want to bring it to my readers attention none the less. 
 According to Wiki:
"Since Ender's Game's publication in 1985, author Orson Scott Card had always been protective of the film rights and artistic control. Card explained that he had many opportunities through the 1980s and 1990s to sell the rights of Ender's Game to Hollywood studios, but refused when creative differences became an issue.With the formation of Fresco Pictures in 1996 (which Card co-founded), the author decided to write the screenplay himself. "  Now this might be getting very interesting. 
Basic Plot Synopsis
After an alien race called the Formics (also known as the "Buggers") attacks Earth, the International Fleet prepare for the next invasion by training the best young children to find the future leader to lead the International Military. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is pulled out of his Earth school to join International Fleet and attend the legendary Battle School in Space

  1. Never read the book, put I'm sort of interested in seeing the movie.

  2. I'm interested to see where and what the movie has to offer. I don't agree with the author about anything else but its interesting to see which way the direction it goes. Should be entertaining regardless. Thanks for the comment and more to come.
