Ender's Game (2013 Film)


Director: Gavin Hood
Screenplay: Gavin Hood
Stars: Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford
IMDB
Wikipedia

Really excited about this film. I loved the movie as a kid, and they've assembled quite a cast. The film will take scenes from Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow. Orson Scott Card has voiced his approval of the film so far.

Some initial stills from the film: 1,2

I'm still a bit uneasy about this film. There's just something that seems "off." I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe I'm still in shock it's actually a reality.

I do have to say the one thing I'm looking most forward to is Breslin as Val. Talk about perfect.

I am very nervous about how this movie is going to compare to the book, but I'm still looking forward to it.

Produced by Orci and Kurtzman. There goes my interest. At least they aren't credited as writers, so I might give this a chance on free TV after all.

That's common in cinema, though. None of the kids in Game of Thrones are the age they should be, except maybe Arya.

Is the Ender series all self-contained stories or do you have to read through the entire series?

Don't care if it's common. Making Ender 15 or whatever makes the whole thing pointless.

Ender's Game is entirely self-contained. The other Ender books form their own story. Ender's Shadow is a nice companion to Ender's Game, and the other Shadow books likewise are form their own story. Beware though that some of the later books suffer due to Orson Scott Card's utter insanity.

I was in the same situation as you long ago, and I read it due to the hype surrounding it, but personally I didn't think it was that great, for various reasons. It never really clicked with me.

I thought EG was overrated. I stopped after the first three books (in publication order); they got progressively unsatisfying.

I'm not ruling out seeing it, though, but that will depend on what else is showing at the time and what else I'm up to.

You do have a point. It's like making a Lord of the Flies film with teenagers.

Re: Ender's Game (2013 Film)

I'm looking forward to this but I'm uneasy by Gavin Hood's track record. Once we see a trailer, I think we'll have a better feel for it.

Uncle Orson is a douche. Welcome to 1986.
