In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics has attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham (Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff (ord) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the next great leader. Ender Wiggin (Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.Read More
Back in July, we reported that the LGBT community is boycotting Summit Entertainment's Ender's Game, because of author Orson Scott Card's controversial views on homosexuality and same-sex marriage. A new report reveals that the writer won't be receiving any back end compensation for the adaptation.
The LBGT boycott was staged because they didn't want to see the writer receiving any money for the sci-fi thriller, which stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley. However, it turns out he was never set to get any additional compensation anyway, because the original deal he signed more than 10 years ago didn't have a stipulation for any back end payments.Read More
