    Ender's Game teaser trailer

    The new Ender's Game trailer was released yesterday. The visuals look good, but I'm still worried that this terrible director is going to make a mess of what should be an amazing movie. Why couldn't they get someone that knows how to develop a story?

    Also... what the **** is that **** all over Mazer Rackham's face?

    Edit: sorry, forgot link. Abe got it, it's the 2nd reply.

    I'm hoping we get to see the giant in the fantasy game and just curious how they will do the game in general.

    I'm thinking the game gets left out all together. Or just mentioned in dialogue. You just can't include every detail when you are adapting a 350 page novel into a screenplay. Unless you're Peter Jackson.

    Supposedly they are including material from Ender's Shadow as well. I'm very interested in seeing how they portray dystopian Rotterdam. The book made me envision an urban Lord of the Flies, literally a Hell on Earth populated by abandoned children.

    That's an interesting take on it. I just envisioned present day Rio de Janeiro.

    Re: Ender's Game teaser trailer

    Just reread this last year. Not sure how I feel about making this a movie. Probably better to be watching and not know what is actually happening. I think casting Harrison Ford is a distraction. I can see Ben Kingsley but like the OP, what's up with the face stuff? They may have taken the Maori thing too far, he isn't playing Queequeg from Moby Dick.

    I also wonder WTF is up with Mazer's face. Some scars or something? Sure. This is just dumb.

    I read this book when I was in 7th grade. I remember loving the book, but I only remember the most basic of details. I'm going to have to go back and read it again before I watch the movie.

    This is why I don't read books, I get to see the movie and not be annoyed at everything they screw up.

    In my opinion, the Shadow story arc would make for far more successful movies than Ender's arc. Ender's story, while very good, is not exactly summer blockbuster material.

    Shadow, on the other hand, is much more action oriented. Revenge. Intrigue. Love story. It's got a lot of the elements.

    Yeah, I think a lot of us agree on that. Ender's story is my favorite, but it isn't quite as blockbuster-friendly as Shadow.

    Ender's game was the better book. They'll have to be liberal with the adaptation to make it work on screen.
