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.

Nevertheless, studios continue to dip their fingers bravely into the danger zone like poor, doomed Peter Duncan in Flash Gordon. Perhaps it's the success of films such as Avatar, or the eternal popularity of Star Wars and Star Trek, but there seem to be more space-oriented movies around at the moment than there have been since the glory days of the 1970s.
Two teaser trailers hit the internet this week for two very different films, both with a futuristic bent but hailing from as far apart in the sci-fi galaxy as it is possible to travel. Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, »
