Ender's Game is probably my favorite book of all time, but I can't imagine a movie carrying over any of the aspects that made the book great. It just isn't a book that I see transitioning well to film.

It looks like they took the time to do the movie right and got some big names like Harrison Ford, so hopefully they don't butcher this thing too badly. OSC has fought against an Ender's Game movie for a long time, so the fact that he is approving of this production means it isn't going to be terrible.

Interesting... I hope Achilles has a big part in it!

Even if this tanks, the silver lining will be that it'll eradicate any possibility of something as stupid as a live action Evangelion movie ever being made
...I hope...

Achilles is not a part of Ender's Game.

Trailer looks great, although I'm afraid it may show too much for those who have read the book.

It's too bad Harrison Ford is awful... Then again, he has a pretty simple role so hopefully they'll pull it off. The kid who plays Ender went nuts all over reddit reassuring people that the spirit of the book is very much present.

Oh yeah, that's Shadow...

I hope to see a lot of Bean though, even without his nemesis.

I've read this entire series; Bean's story-line as well as Ender's. I can't to see this movie. Definitely one of my favorite book series.

This doesn't seem like it would translate well to the screen. Hope I'm wrong, though.
