Ender's Game Synopsis

In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.

Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham himself to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

The Ender's Game movie is based on the best-selling, award winning novel written by Orson Scott Card.

Ender's Game's #1 Opening Probably Not Enough To Earn A Sequel Ender's Game's #1 Opening Probably Not Enough To Earn A Sequel
Ender's Game was the easy champion of the weekend box office, netting $28 million and a first-place finish. And while $28 million is a hefty amount for many films, it's not that gigantic for a film with a reported budget of $110 million. And as THR reports from several analysts, it's not the kind of money that immediately leads to a sequel

Still, because the perspective in the novel needed to be changed to suit the needs of the film and because Card’s original novel is highly detailed and accurate in its intentions, Ender’s Game is a different but similar adventure on the big screen when compared to its novel counterpart.

Were kids across America packing up their trick-or-treating hauls and bringing it to the movie theater last night? At least enough of them were to make midnight showings of Ender's Game a solid success. Early numbers at The Hollywood Reporter say the PG-13 sci-fi film made $1.4 million from early screenings on Thursday, putting in a good position for a weekend box office contest it's expected to win.

Why Ender's Game Is The Best Possible Adaptation Of The Book Why Ender's Game Is The Best Possible Adaptation Of The Book
Comparing a film to the book on which it’s based is always a tricky task, as we all have our own mental visualization of how a story looks. My hopes for the feature adaptation of Ender’s Game were high, but I left the screening thinking that Gavin Hood’s adaptation did about as good a job as it could have with the source material, turning Orson Scott Card’s story into a movie without compromising the core message or the lead character.

Why Boycotting Ender’s Game Doesn't Make Sense Why Boycotting Ender’s Game Doesn't Make Sense
There are a lot of great reasons not to see Ender’s Game this weekend. Advertisements for the film have been confusing. The footage looks a little video game-ish. It’s only getting blah plus reviews from critics. Director Gavin Hood’s take on Wolverine was not very good. All of these and a whole lot more are perfectly valid reasons to stay away, but let me tell you one that isn’t: Orson Scott Card’s hatred for gay people.

Though its release date isn’t technically until tomorrow, Ender’s Game arrives in theaters across the country tonight, and at long last for those who have been waiting decades to see Orson Scott Card’s novel adapted since it was published back in 1985. But how much does the book’s author actually stand to gain from the success of the film at the box office?

I haven't exactly been shy about expressing my observation that lot of the footage we've seen from the upcoming feature adaptation of Ender's Game has focused on the threat of alien invasion and the space war side of this story. So I'm especially excited to see the above clip from the film, which focuses on the lead character's training in Battle School.

The promos for Ender's Game focus a lot on the alien war man is preparing to fight, but the photos for the feature adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel tell a different story, as they place a higher emphasis on the preparation aspect of this story as opposed to the war. And while we're on the subject of emphasis, does anyone else notice there's an abundance of Petra in the promotional content lately?

A lot of what we've seen from the Ender's Game promotional content has focused on the threat of an alien war -- the latest TV spot included -- and given the backdrop of this futuristic story, that's not all that surprising. The cast -- which includes Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and Asa Butterfield -- and the visual effects are two huge selling points for the film. But those who've read Orson Scott Card's novel know there's a bit more to this story than thrilling space battles and apocalyptic alien invasion imagery.

It's likely a recurring childhood daydream to imagine that one day someone might show up and tell you that you're extraordinary and destined for great things. In literary form, this might involve some fantastical, fictional location where only the most gifted and special children get to go to achieve said greatness.

Did The Ender's Game Trailer Recycle Disaster Effects From Knowing? Did The Ender's Game Trailer Recycle Disaster Effects From Knowing?
More controversy for Ender's Game? Ok, not really, as I don't think reusing disaster footage from a previous movie is particularly scandalous. Still, one Reddit user did manage to spot a glimpse of a familiar scene in the Summit film's recently released trailer. It looks like Summit dipped into at least one of its previous films to create the disaster footage that's revealed early on in the trailer.
