Final Ender’s Game Poster Has a Poorly Chosen Tagline

Posted by Ben Huber on Aug 4, 2013 in Cinema

Ender’s Game has had its fair share of controversy hovering around the film, especially with Orson Scott Card’s disappointing remarks. I can’t really fault the crews or special effects teams who have poured tons of work into this movie though, so it’s quite the quandary. Still, the marketing team is doing their best to overcome the bad press, but their latest poster (and supposedly the final one) misses the mark a bit. “This is not a game” running right above the title “Ender’s Game” doesn’t exactly flow well. I imagine most readers of Fanboy have read Ender’s Game, so you can recognize the irony of the catchline. Read more…

Ender’s Game Film Won’t Be Advertised By These Cool Posters

Ender's Game Poster 1

Not every poster design gets sent out to theaters. Take a look at these potential Ender’s Game posters focusing on the characters.

First Footage of Ender’s Game

Here you go, guys, the first footage of Ender’s Game. It looks alright, I suppose. They kind of drop a spoiler in there, but I guess they’re just running with it. I’m not incredibly excited nor against an Ender’s Game movie, but simply along for the ride. I’m sure someone else has said this too, but dang, Harrison Ford is getting old. He looks so odd juxtaposed with Asa Butterfield. Ford sounds like he hated even saying the word “YouTube.” This is only a short clip to whet your appetite, as the full trailer will be arriving on May 7th. Check it out! Read more…
