"You Will Be The Last!" - The Hugo Kid is a New Kind of Solider in this first Ender's Game Trailer
I've never read the book. I have met Orson Scott Card for about ten minutes of my life; he was a nice enough man despite his insane morals & opinions. So I'm not one of those kids freaking out about Hollywood's latest adaptation. But like Matt, I'm always rooting for big sci-fi movies. Fingers crossed on this one. Can't really say the trailer grabs me. Ben Kingsley & Harrison Ford cashing their supporting role check. As much as I loved Martin Scorsese's Hugo, I can't say that Asa Butterfield gave an amazing performance and it looks like he'll have even more greenscreen to act against. I did really appreciate Hailee Steinfeld in the Coen's True Grit, and hopefully they'll pair well. The director is Gavin Hood, the man who helmed the abomination known as X-Men Origins - Wolverine. One of the absolute worst comic book movies to ever seer my vision. I'd watch Ghost Rider 1 a hundred times before I pained myself with that flop again. So...that's troubling.
