Final Ender’s Game Poster Has a Poorly Chosen Tagline

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.

Spoilers for Ender’s Game ahead: given that it really isn’t a game, this tagline could almost be considered a spoiler for the end as well. I suppose they want to drive home that this is a serious story, but this seems like the wrong way to do that.
