Go Ahead and Cancel Your Plans For November 1: You're Seeing "Ender's Game"

Posted By on Fri, May 10, 2013 at 9:27 AM

Or at least, I am, and I don't feel bad telling you that you should go.

If you're not familiar with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game series of books, here's a short synopsis: In the future, Earth is attacked by alien forces. To combat them, Earth forces unite to create a space-station/school for select children, training them from preschool to be the greatest tactical military minds we could ever need or want. Ender Wiggin is one of those kids.

From there, there's a bunch of floating in simulated war games, and child-on-child violence, and things blowing up mixed in with geopolitics and people having feelings about stuff.

As a huge fan of Ender's Game (and the companion Shadow Series following Bean, a supporting character from Ender's Game), I'm excited — not just because this was a favorite book of mine growing up, but because the cast and effects appear to actually do the book justice.

The movie comes out Nov. 1. I'll see you folks there.
