Trailer Score: 6/10
Thoughts by Tsr: Despite finding author Orson Scott Card’s personal views very difficult to stomach, I sat down and read “Ender’s Game” last week. Overall I found much of it too repetitive, but I thought the final 60 pages were great. Even though it boasts a solid cast, I haven’t had a lot of interest in this adaptation. That’s mostly due to X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Gavin Hood and producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Still, after the novel finished strong I was ready to like this trailer. I hardly found it to be outstanding, but it’s a decent two minutes.

It may not have a title yet, but Michael Mann's upcoming cyber-crime thriller has gathered quite a cast. Chris Hemsworth is already set to play the lead, with Viola Davis also onboard, and now Lust, Caution stars Tang Wei and Wang Leehom have joined the roster.The two Chinese thesps previously worked together on Ang Lee's World War II thriller, but this time they'll be playing a brother and sister duo, and we also know that Tang will be Hemsworth's character's love interest.Beyond that, it's all still hidden behind firewalls and security protocols galore. If we were guessing we'd speculate that Wang and Tang will be Chinese hackers from the darkly-rumoured government programmes that are supposed to be infiltrating Western powers right now. That, or they're perfectly respectable programmers who help to debunk such paranoid conspiracy theories.In any case, the film starts shooting in June in La, »
I don’t know if Michael Mann is playing it too cute with his new cyber thriller by not giving the trades a title, or if he’s just undecided about a title. I honestly don’t know how you could already be casting for a movie without a title. I mean, how long has this movie been casting? A couple of months now? Anyways, Mann may not be willing to divulge the title of his new movie (universes might explode or some such), but he is adding plenty of new castmembers to it. You can now add Chinese actors Wei Tang and Leehom Wang (the duo previously co-starred together on Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution”) to the cast, which already includes Chris Hemsworth in the lead, with Viola Davis also previously attached in an unspecified role. The untitled thriller is being described as “being in the vein of Mann »

American author Orson Scott Card's best-selling 1985 sci-fi novel Ender's Game is heading to the big screen this November courtesy of Gavin Hood, director of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and while that probably doesn't fill you with much confidence, perhaps the first teaser trailer will do the trick.
Ender's Game stars Asa Butterfield (Hugo) as Ender Wiggin, an exceptionally talented child who finds himself whisked off to Battle School to learn the art of war in preparation for the defense of Earth against an invasion by some pesky alien buggers. Also featuring in the cast are Harrison Ford (42), Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3), Abigail Breslin (Zombieland), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Viola Davis (The Help). Check out the first trailer after the official synopsis:

The first official trailer for writer/director Gavin Hood's VFX-heavy, intergalactic adventure "Ender's Game" is here. Oscar winner Hood ("Tsotsi," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine") has written and directed the dystopian sci-fi adventure from the 1985 novel by Orson Scott Card. Asa Butterfield ("Hugo") plays Ender, a preternaturally gifted child taken to the Battle School to prepare for the next alien invasion that looms in the near future. The film also stars Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld. Like the teaser poster, Summit is aiming this at core fans of the book, which I am finally catching up with; it's a smart, tough look at adults exploiting kids and forcing them to survive their own power games as they develop the skills to save the planet. Trailer below. »

The much-anticipated first trailer for the long-awaited, high-budget adaptation Orson Scott Card’s classic sci-fi novel Ender’s Game has landed just now. And what do we make of it? Well, it’s got a Ben Kingsley sporting awesomely ridiculous facial tattoos, Asa Butterfield (whose voice has broken considerably) playing the put-upon young lead, and Harrison Ford offering what might be one of his more promising performances in quite a while.
It certainly seems like an assured sci-fi adventure; hopefully it’ll live up to the massive acclaim bestowed upon the book. The official synopsis for Ender’s Game can be read below:
In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford »

The first trailer for Ender's Game has arrived with an emphasis on action, Academy Award wins and nominations, and neglecting to mention the author whom originally penned the novel the film is based off.
The trailer starts with scenes comparable to Independence Day with swarms of alien ships laying waste to the futile attempts of Air Force jets to turn them away. At jets explode, Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff offers a voiceover about how the aliens learned how we think in the first attack and that cannot happen again.
Enter Ender (Asa Butterfield), a gifted young man whose mind doesn't work the same way as most kids. Graff sees the potential in Ender to "think different than everyone else" and tells him that he will become a great commander some day. Ender is the best chance Earth has at stopping the next invasion.
Academy Awards and nominations are »

"...in the near future, a hostile alien race called the 'Formics' have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of 'International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham' (Kingsley), all would have been lost.

The first full trailer for sci-fi movie Ender's Game has been revealed.
The film is set in the near future, with the plot centring on an alien race called the Formics who have attacked Earth.
This forces Colonel Hyrum Graff (Ford) and a specialised military team to train the best young minds ahead of future attacks.
One such recruit is Ender Wiggin (Butterfield), who is quickly hailed as the generation's great hope. »
I understand that there is some Hollywood rule out there that all Hero-Journey Blockbuster (tm) trailers have to look alike. I understand that if you have Harrison Ford in your movie that you might as well use his voice to sell your movie. What I do not understand is whether Gavin Hood aims to preserve the tone of Ender's Game, very much from a young (if extraordinarily gifted) child's point of view, instead of indulging in noisy action blockbuster familiarity.Two things: Haliee Steinfeld (the young lead from the Coen's remake of True Grit) goes a fair way in confirming her acting ability with nothing more a single glance on screen. It is delightful to see Viola Davis back in Solaris mode; she should be in more...
