I'm mad because I JUST found out that they pushed the movie release date back EIGHT MONTHS. TO NOVEMBER.
Apparently, it's part of a publicity thing by Lionsgate(who is making the film under the imprint Summit Entertainment) to get it more publicity. They're releasing the film two weeks before the release of Catching Fire.
Do you guys think this is smart, or neh? I just reread the book and was thinking about it. It was great! I experienced it all over again. XD I hope the movie is good! Card is a co-producer, so it should be good!
I think Ender's Game and The Hunger Games can attract the same following. They're both dystopia/futureish, both have the same themes about morality, and both involve unique children forced into battle against each other and struggling against an overpowering authority.
One difference is that Ender's Game is about legit kids. Like, legitly kids. No one over the age of 12. Not boring teenagers. XD That's one thing I don't want the movie to screw up. THEY NEED TO BE SMALL.
But Ender's so smart he'd probably figure out really really fast what to do. Some of you are like "Ender is already in The Hunger Games, his name is Foxface". And I think he would kind of do what she did, stay out of everybody's way and be really boss and smart. Except he wouldn't be as afraid as confrontation, since he can actually fight.
Valentine would get squashed within five seconds, unless she talked her way out of it before she got into the arena. Which you can't rule out.
Since Peter is basically Cato except smarter and with self control, I'd totally bet on him. XD
The cast at a Laker's game! I am VERY worried about the height difference between Moises and Asa. XD
Ender's Game could totally be a prequel to The Hunger Games. Like if Peter takes over the world or something and gets a heart attack and dies, the world goes into chaos, Panem rises out of the ashes, and bans space travel FOREVER! And meanwhile Valentine and Ender are chillaxing on another planet with no clue whatsoever.
Also, guess where Ender's home is? Greensboro, North Carolina! North Carolina=District 12! Coincidence? I think not!
The Hunger Games characters are all very realistic and likeable in their own way, but it's the opposite with Ender's Game. They're all...caricatures to a point, all made to exemplify a few traits, all riddled with flaws and confusion. :) But you gotta love em anyway. XD
Abigail Breslin as Valentine! One of only two girls in Ender's Game! I think she's perfect! They should bob her hair, but they probably won't.
ASAAAA as Ender. I laaave him! Sure, he's 14, and he should be...six..but he always plays characters younger than himself. I don't mind how old the actors are exactly as long as they're all prepubescent. XD
Moises Arias as Bonzo. He was on Disney Channel, so it's really weird to see him in this role. XD Except...he's nearly a head shorter than Asa. #PROBLEMS
Aramis Knight as Bean! He's so cuuutee! He's like..12 now.
Jimmy as Peter! I love that they're not casting anybody too old. he's only fifteen.
THE ONLY GIRL IN BATTLE SCHOOL, YO. Hailee Steinfieild/ Petra Arkanian OWNS. XD
If they make a romance between her and Ender, I WILL PUKE.
I learned that the name for Ender's Game fans is Battle School Brats. Okay then. I EMBRACE THE NAME. BATTLE SCHOOL BRATS FOR THE WIN! Dragon Army! The Enemy's Gate is Down! Champions of Flash Suits, Hooks, and Bad Grammar! POWER TO THE GRAY-ORANGE-GRAY!
Yeah, it's late at night.
