First Still from Ender's Game Movie!





I have to say...exactly as I pictured it. The Battle School at least. I know Ender in the pic is too old, but you want a good actor for live action.



Are you pumped?



Q1: Who are the other kids?

Q2: What toon is that?

A: Launchies?






---------------------------------------
As a fun add-on, this is what I said in another thread about how I would do Ender's Game:

quote:

CGI Ender's Game adaptation.


quote:

Trailer:

We see the inside of a deserted hallway that is slightly sloping upwards in the distance. Then a track running along the outsides of the floor lights up with three colors signifying a platoon. Kids come pouring out of their bunkroom and into the hall while tey finish putting their team unis on. There we see Ender, a Launchie, getting pushed around and eventually falling in in the back of the line. At the Battleroom His 'toon leader tells him to stay out until 5 minutes into the battle. (music picks up) He looks at his watch, leaves the gate at the appropriate time, and loses his footing due to lack of gravity. He quickly grabs a railing beneath the door. Next we close in tight on him and we see him slowly adjust himself and turn around to face the camera We see his eyes go wide. We then see a panoramic shot of a battle that is taking place in the wide open space. (crescendo)

ENDER'S GAME pounds onto the screen.

Here's a list & pictures of the actors playing other characters:

The other battle school kids starts at picture 11/17

IMO Ender's Shadow series was better, Bean FTW

Haha. Very true, except for Ender getting facetime with Graff in the bunkroom with Ender. I thought most of his contact with him happened before he went to school?

Don't know yet.

Wrong question. Toons are the subgroups within the army. I'm guessing this is his launch group.

Not sure though. Its a new scene since there isn't a moment in the book where Graff confronts Ender in the barracks. The only "adult" who enters the launchies' barracks is Dap.

I'm very excited about this movie since it is probably my favorite book. I'm also very worried because they could very easily screw it up.

The kids being older doesn't bother me. You can't find a competent actor at 6 years old anyway.

I agree with this. It is not a kid's book. They better not whitewash the Stilson fight or the Bonzo fight. That would piss me off.

Read the article in the bar below the meet the cast article. There's an interview with the director and it sounds like he's doing his best to do the book justice.

exactly. i dont see this as a problem. i actually fricking hate that they are so young in the book. "let's let this 9 and 7 year old save the world" kinda bothered me actually.

You said everything I already said, Scruffy!


BTW here's Bonzo: Right on!


Bean: Thought he was blond.

Going off cast photo's to this photo: Ender front left; Alai to his right.

Were Ender and Alai Launch buddies together?

I disagree with this. I never viewed any of the Wiggin children or those at the Battle School as children. Card also states in his introduction that you aren't supposed to view them as such.

To each their own though.

They were in the same launch group.

You also had Bernard and Shen (the "butt wiggler"). Shen may be one of the two on the left. As for Bernard, if this is early on, remember that he has a cast on his broken arm. We can't see him in that shot. This may be after he got it off though. He might be the tall one.

As for the chicks, no clue. The only two major female characters are Petra and Valentine. They made Major Anderson a female in the movie. They never did say whether Anderson was male or female in the book.

Holy crap, when was the last time you read this?

I read it Summer of 2010. That was my fourth time, I think. I can't recall info like that.
