Just saw the weirdest ad yet, on Comedy Central.

Paraphrasing, but "Join us this Sunday for a total Ender Bender! Sneak peek of footage from Ender's Game during (Futurama's) Bender's Game"

:( My copy of the "Making Of" book still hasn't shipped even though theoretically it was released yesterday, and I preordered. Amazon still says my expected delivery estimate is as early as Friday O_o

Saw it, and it was just part of the last trailer. Nothing new

The new TV spot is super spoilerific, but also reinforces my hopes that a certain key moment is present. The VFX reel has a couple cool shots. http://buff.ly/19rPExk

Our theater had literally no Ender's Game promotional material anywhere in sight. They did have a tiny thing advertising collectible EG Icee cups, but they didn't have any of them.

At which point I changed my order from a ridiculously overpriced icee to a ridiculously overpriced vitamin water.

I wore my "Scan Me!" T-Shirt (Noah put one on, too), and I left some "Scan Me!" placards in a few opportune locations.

We, unfortunately MISSED the 8:00 pm LIEMAX showing (which I have heard is the same video file projected onto a slightly larger, more expensive screen), and watched a regular 4K digital movie in a regular theater. There were less than 50 people overall in the theater with us. Only one guy, other than us, stayed to the very end of the credits.

During the closing credits (no surprise at the end of the credits, BTW), Darian said, "This is cool, I know who all these people are!"

I said, "To me, it reads like a list of ALL THE PEOPLE WHO NEVER RETURNED ANY OF MY E-MAILS!" (Actually, Gigi Pritzker did, but obviously to no avail)
