“Ender’s Game” Enters The Final Countdown with a New Trailer & Poster
by Dan Casey on August 6, 2013
The hotly anticipated live-action adaptation of Ender’s Game doesn’t drop ’til November 1st, but there’s a brand new trailer and a one-sheet, featuring Ender at his Daft Punk dandiest, to tide you over while you mull over whether to cosplay as Ender or Mazer Rackham for the midnight screening.
Although the film was the subject of much media scrutiny at San Diego Comic-Con, due to Ender’s Game author Orson Scott Card’s controversial statements on same-sex marriage, much of the uproar has died down and both filmmakers and Lionsgate have gone on record reaffirming their support for the LGBT community and affirming that while they “do not agree with the personal views of Orson Scott Card and those of the National Organization for Marriage,” these discussions “are completely irrelevant to a discussion of Ender’s Game.” The words may be too little, too late for some members of the LGBT community, but for those who are willing to look past the source material and its author, the new trailer and one-sheet should make for a nice appetizer while you wait for November’s main course.
