    Yeah, I've had my eye on their attempts to get this together for years. I guess the whole Hunger Games thing lit a fire under their asses. It could be a great movie, or not. There will be a lot of young actors involved.

    They're seriously making an Ender's game movie? Wow, that's going to be awesome. I wonder if they're going to make more of the Ender's saga into movies too? I'd like to see Speaker For The Dead made into a movie as well.

    If they were to make a movie out of Bean's point of view/Shadow Series, I'd freak (in a bad way.) I wanted to punch Bean (if I was able to) more than I could count. It was a glutton for punishment reading his PoV.

    I mean, he was okay, but god...... once I started reading his perspective I had that urge to.... Let's us say he is one of those fictional characters you wanted to hurt very badly.

    Sad thing, without him, there "wouldn't" be an Ender's Game.

    Let's hope Ender's Game is a huge success coming 2013, and they might just make the whole Series(and even the Shadow ones) into movies.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    The aliens are insects; they are far below our level, so why even bother stepping on them? It's child's play - literally! The kid looks like a mini-Spock from Star Trek.

    I can't wait! I hope it's good!

    At least it's not 3D. That's good news.

    I notice that Orson Scott Card is one of the film's producers, hopefully he was able to maintain some kind of control over the project and make it as good as the source material.

    And I hope the vfx become more polished as the movie nears its release date; a lot of the shots looked like shit. The music video for Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing" looked more convincing.

    I'm pretty stoked about it. It seems all of my favorite books over the past few years have been turning to movies/tv series. I feel so lucky!

    Now I'm just waiting for Mistborn.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    That could be really good.
