NY Times now has it listed:

"After two alien attacks all but wipe out the human race, a new world order trains children to lead the survivors against aliens. ~ Baseline StudioSystems"

Yikes! New World Order!

That's all I can find...for now.

Woo, that would be a welcome change! And apparently I live on the wrong street.

Here's a version that shows a little more of the room

if I saw that pic without knowing, I probably wouldn't recognise it as Ender's Game :?

I see far too many straight lines receding off into the distance....shouldn't the floor (and also the ceiling) curve up?

Maybe the station loop is a polygon instead of a circle ;)

Maybe their barracks go from top to bottom instead of around the curve of the loop.

I assume you mean "Run parallel to the axis of rotation of the Battle School Habitation Ring" as opposed to "run along the perimeter of the Habitation Ring"

It's been a while since I've read the book carefully, but I always had the impression that the curvature was slight enough it was only noticeable in the long hallways.

I love the picture, though, it looks great!

Hmmm...maybe not the Launchie barracks, but certainly the "Army" barracks:

Armies were larger than launch groups, and the army barracks room was larger,
too. It was long and narrow, with bunks on both sides; so long, in fact, that
you could see the curvature of the floor as the far end bent upward, part of the
wheel of the Battle School.

So much for research.....

They say the production budget is over $110 Million. It's definitely getting the big screen treatment!

I just read through the article (which was pretty cool) and was especially looking for the reference to 'Wiggin Ender'... but I found this at the end instead:


This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

Correction: January 16, 2013

An article on Tuesday about the heiress Gigi Pritzker and “Ender’s Game,” produced by her studio, OddLot Entertainment, misstated the name of the protagonist in the Orson Scott Card novel that the film is based on. He is Andrew Wiggin, known as Ender; his name is not Wiggin Ender.

Did anyone but me (and Darian, and maybe Noah) notice the fascinating article on ENDERNEWS.COM yesterday, that showed some pre-production artwork from two of the designers?

Darian had found the artwork, on publicly available sites, and EN had posted the images and links, and some discussion. I was definitely excited by the details that were shown, and since Darian had figured out the first half, I went ahead and figured out the second half.

Well, it's all gone now.

All that's left is this:

Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist


Here's the dead link: http://blog.endernews.com/2013/01/possi ... -game.html

And as far as I can tell, the two production artists' sites are gutted as well:

http://brettphillipsart.com

and

http://www.seanhaworth.com/SH_Design/Po ... folio.html


However: http://www.enderwiggin.net/2013/01/28/digital-architecture-images-enders-game-sets/

And: http://www.clintwallace.com/


I was quite excited to see the photos of the interior of the Battle School, as well as some architectural models of the interior of Eros and the Simulator stations. But they're gone now.

Is this how a film production treats its fans? IDK...maybe it is.
