In just two weeks time, the feature adaptation of Ender's Game will arrive in theaters. We've seen quite a bit of promotional content for the film in the recent weeks, including half a dozen new clips, and a preview of the excellent Mondo poster that's set to go on sale next week. And today brings this new featurette, which shows us "Building Ender's World."
If you've been keeping track of Mondo these days, you know they've been showcasing Universal monsters with some pretty outstanding limited edition prints, but the latest poster to unveil for the site is for a more current film. With Ender's Game set to arrive in theaters in a matter of weeks, the timing seems right for a Mondo poster to celebrate the anticipated sci-fi film, and artist Martin Ansin has delivered.
After a series of trailers and TV spots, most of which have emphasized the alien invasion and war aspect of Summit's sci-fi thriller Ender's Game, we now have six new clips to add to the pile, the above video included, most of which focus on Ender. Is he the one who will save mankind from the next "eminent" invasion? Harrison Ford's Colonel Graff seems to think so, but others aren't so sure.
As the release of Ender's Game approaches, that steady trickle of promotional content that's been coming in for the last couple of months appears to be turning into a virtual flood, with new TV spots, photos and other tidbits giving us new glimpses of the sci-fi film. That includes the above TV spot, titled "Morality," as well as a very spoilery peek at the giant featured in the Mind Game, and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.
No matter what happens, at least in the short term, movies set in or around outer space are going to be compared to Gravity. “Sure, it looks OK, but it’s not Gravity.” Unfair? Maybe. But it’s reality. So what are the five upcoming sci-fi projects that should be a little bit concerned by the success of Cuaron’s Gravity?
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.
If the trailers and TV spots for Ender's Game aren't selling you on the IMAX experience for this movie, perhaps this new poster will. The image shows the silhouetted figure of Ender Wiggin standing in front of a row of monitors while giant freaking lasers blast off in front of him.
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.
Those die-hard Ender's Game fans eager for the film to finally make its way into theaters may already be aware that the 2014 calendar for the film has recently become available for sale. The wall calendar includes a number of colorful images from the feature adaptation of Orson Scott Card's popular sci-fi novel.
Fall is upon us and in about a months and a half, the feature adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel Ender's Game will arrive in theaters at long last. The latest two posters follow a series of propaganda-style marketing, all of which reminds us that "the next invasion is imminent." This first one takes a more explosive approac, showing a ship mid-destruction, set below the words "It's Us or Them."
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.
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.
A day after the final poster for Ender's Game landed online and just under three months ahead of the film's arrival in theaters comes the final trailer for the feature adaptation of Orson Scott Card's beloved sci-fi novel. Fans in attendance of the Summit panel at Comic-Con got a glimpse of the footage revealed in the video
The latest clip – different from the first trailer – gives us comprehensive looks at the massive sci-fi worlds Hood has constructed from Orson Scott Card’s seminal novel. It establishes young Asa Butterfield (Hugo) as the chosen warrior meant to protect our planet from an extraterrestrial invasion.
