It's not based on the Orson Scott Card story. Liberals can relax.
That's not very constructive.

Which "acclaimed series" is this movie based on? The Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott Card? I'd not heard that any more of Card's stories were being filmed. If it is based on the Alvin Maker series, it doesn't look like it hews very closely to the source material.
If wiki is to be trusted, it's based on Joseph Delaney's book, titled Spook's Apprentice, which is part of the Wardstone Chronicles. I must admit, I'd not heard of the series until now.

As for the film, I'm not expecting it to be a great piece of cinema, but it looks like it could be a fun diversion.
