Re: Bean Launch Group

I'll actually be more happy if they don't try to "throw" in stuff about Bean. While, of course, I loved Ender, I think I was more attached to Bean. Maybe because we got to follow more of his story after the fact. The movie will obviously focus on Ender (why else would they cast the more known actor ...

Re: The trailer

I went to see Star Trek and was really looking forward to the preview. It was regular 2D. Guess what? No Ender's Game preview. Seriously screwed my mood for the entire movie. I was talking it up for the friends that I went with because they have no clue what Ender's Game is. Bummer.

Re: The trailer

I wish I could say that I'm happy with the trailer, but I'm not. I just won't say so in public, fearing people not getting excited over the movie. As someone already said, it would have been great to see more Battle School things and less war, but I understand the need to draw people in. I hope the ...

Re: Asa offhandedly mentions the Mind Game in an interview

I'm super impressed with the way Asa Butterfield carries himself.

Re: How will scenes like the Bonzo bathroom scene be changed

The fight will probably be intense, but without any nudity. I doubt OSC would allow it.

Re: So long, Ender's Game!

As some here have seen on my blog, I certainly don't agree with Card's views. Sometimes I wish I didn't like EG as much as I do. Then it would be easier to say, "I'm not seeing this movie because of him." I do recognize that his views are pretty common, especially where I live (SC). I wish he could ...

Re: So long, Ender's Game!

This movie honestly has little to do with OSC other than it being based on his book. It is very doubtful that anyone on production staff shares his views. It is Hollywood, right?

I just finished Jeffrey Deaver's new James Bond book. It was fantastic!

Re: Favorite OSC book?

I'm with the majority here. Ender's Game was the best, but Ender's Shadow is a CLOSE second. I just like the stories based around the original scenes.

Re: So long, Ender's Game!

I agree. And I'm sure it is old news here, but this is a small portion of the audience that they have to reach if they want a success at the box office. Many people are going to find out about Card's views at the worst time. I just honestly hope it does not affect the movie. I want nothing more than...

Re: So long, Ender's Game!

Nobody has even mentioned this controversy. It may have to do with the promotion aspect of the movie.
