I want this for myself, but I can't have it.In order to mark the release Ender's Game into UK cinemas, here's a Brits-only competition If you'd like to win an Ender's Game poster signed by Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and the two lead teen stars, Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld, all you need to do[...]
Here's a look, from the Ender's Game Tumblr, at the concept art that fed into the upcoming feature film adaptation.There's some very fine design work here I do hope the film lives up to it.Ender’s Game opens in the UK on the 25th of October and in[...]
Waiting for Gavin Hood to come on stage for an Ender's Game panel a couple of weeks ago, the conversation between Brendon and I turned to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and how neither of us really felt like Hood had dropped the ball too significantly and that there were some very specific issues with the film.One in[...]
Writer-director Gavin Hood took some liberties when adapting the visuals described in Ender's Game for his big screen version The Battle Room, for example, is rather more dynamic and sophisticated in the movie than how Orson Scott Card described its somewhat more minimal architecture on the page.This required a lot of VFX and some new[...]
Last night, I pushed Becky Lewis onto the frontline at the Ender's Game red carpet Armed with questions we'd prepared together, she was ready to snare Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, director Gavin Hood and the film's young leads, Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld.There's never enough time at these events, and so the amount we have[...]
Brendon and I will be attending what looks to be a rather interesting Ender's Game panel this week We'll hopefully be bringing back some more info on the film and our thoughts on the footage we see there.I'm hoping to see something that gets me excited for the film, as at the moment there's not[...]
On the 7th of October between 6:30pm and 8:00pm there will be an Ender's Game panel in London and you can attend for free.The panel will take place in the West End of London - in one of the bigger cinemas in Leicester Square would be my guess - and a number of stars will[...]
Alasdair Stuart writes.I read Ender's Game for the first time last year and really liked it I still do I think it's a very clever, compassionate story about war, the sacrifices that are made for it and whether they're actually required For a lot of other people it's the tip of Orson Scott Card's iceberg[...]
Gavin Hood's got a great sensibility for this material, his tendency towards very ordered compositions bringing the militarism to the fore.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UNWLgY-wuo[/youtube]Ender's Game will have an uphill struggle with its marketing in some quarters Trailers like this feel like The Little Engine That Could, though, chugging away up that steep incline.[...]
A few Marvel Comics changes....Christopher Sebela, co-author of issues of Captain Marvel with Kelly Sue DeConnick, will also co-author Fantastic Four #11 with Matt Fraction.They've now decided that Astonishing X-Men #66 will be drawn by Amilcar Pinna, instead of the ubiquitous TBA.And Marvel's Ender's Game collection is getting a new movie cover (right).Which will make[...]
Adi Tantimedh writes; I'm not going to see the Ender's Game movie, since I never liked the book. I had this opinion long before Orson Scott Card's anti-gay views became public. The studio that produced the movie has been in major damage-control mode, distancing itself and the movie from the author of the book, and […]

I'm not a huge fan of IMAX, really, but this dogfight footage from Ender's Game would seem perfect for the format Imagine those images on a huge screen, perhaps even wrapping about you like a giant cockpit windshield.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZT1-xnbJ3g[/youtube]Mazer Rackham, if you're curious, is played by Ben Kingsley[...]
A tease of what you should expect to see at this year's Comic-Con.
Orson Scott Card, the author of the original Ender's Game novel, is a member of The National Organisation For Marriage - a misnomer, really, because one of their targets actually is marriage, specifically the marriage of same-sex partners.You know, this really isn't the first time we've mentioned this about Card at Bleeding Cool It's maybe[...]
Here are some draft posters for Ender's Game that somehow leaked and made their way to Ender News by way of Movie Newz While there might yet be a character poster campaign for the film, it won't be this one.And, no, there's no obvious reason these drafts didn't make the cut As far as Ender's[...]
They’re rather impressive and very persuasive; I’m half-tempted to join up myself.
Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding CoolI can't say I have read any of the Ender's Game series but I know a bunch of people who are genuinely excited about this film Summit potentially have a massive hit on their hands, and I can already imagine a fan war between this and the Hunger Games[...]
