Five New Character Posters for the 'Ender's Game' Movie Revealed
"We needed a new kind of solider…" One movie I'm getting more and more excited for is Ender's Game, adapted from the Orson Scott Card sci-fi novel. We've seen one trailer so far and know they have big plans for Comic-Con, but a set of five new character posters have also been spotted online. Alas, these are not official posters but they are (as confirmed) "drafts and the artwork wasn't meant to be released to the public. Too bad!" Below you'll see: Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin, Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff, Viola Davis as Anderson, Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham, and Hailee Steinfeld as Petra (in full gear).
Thanks to Ender News for the tip on these. They may be unofficial, but are still cool to see online anyway.
All posters removed at the legal demand of the studio. Sorry!
70 years after a horrific alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion. Ender's Game, based on Orson Scott Card's beloved 1985 novel of the same name, is written & directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition, X-Men Origins) produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci of K/O Paper Products. Asa Butterfield stars as Ender Wiggin, with Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff, plus Nonso Anozie, Moises Arias, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis. Summit/Lionsgate will be releasing Ender's Game in theaters November 1st later this year.

I have crossed every body part that I can in hopes that this movie will be good. The trailer did look fairly promising, but I've been fooled before!

As long as you don't hold your breath, it is the director of Wolverine Origins after all. He didn't get Wolverine at all what makes us think he would understand and have the capability to adapt well this classic story? Marketing is one thing. The film is a different beast. Unfortunately for the studio the fans are more savy these days.

I have to come in here and defend Gavin Hood. Yes he directed Wolverine Origins which was terrible but how much of that was him and how much of it was that terrible script? For whatever reason writers always get let off the hook when they write an awful script. Whereas Gavin Hood was nominated for an Oscar for best foreign picture only a few years before Wolverine was made. The man isn't a hack. And what is Mr. Hood supposed to do in this case? Just not shoot what's in the script? If he doesn't do it the producers will find someone else to. He probably should have just skipped doing the movie but who knows what the circumstances of him taking that job were.

Gavin Hood was the director of Wolverine Origins. He gets full credit for it's success and failure.

For some reason they remind me of Anamorph book covers.

I love the book and the trailer looked amazing. However I find it hard and disturbing to give it too much hype for many reasons, but I recently lost great respect for Orson Scott Card because of his homophobia. :/
