Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Sadly, I was in the middle of work when the G+ Hangout occurred, but the trailer is out for everyone to view at:

YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

The recording of the G+ Hangout where the trailer premiered is also available. Lot of discussion over how they translated various aspects of the book to the big screen (and their hope that fans like the changes/concessions that had to be made):

For those who don't want to watch all 32 minutes, some highlights:

Book readers will be sure to see one change already (from what I hear, it was with Card's blessing). In fact, book lovers will know that Card has repeatedly shot down effort after effort to make a movie out of this book, but gave this one his blessing, so here's hoping!

Also, it's easy to make fun of, but that's a lot of Academy Award Nominees.

Oh, almost forgot:

http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comme..._game_trailer/

Asa (kid who plays Ender), did a very ad-hoc AMA in the comments, and says he'll see about doing an official one later/tomorrow.

A big over his admitting to being poor at Starcraft (and the inevitable ribbing that remark caused, considering....).

That said, it's reddit, so anyone who doesn't want to be spoiled about anything and haven't read the books, you'll likely want to avoid that thread.

Official AMA with Asa Butterfield: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment..._such_as_hugo/

Some interesting tidbits about the movie, though the thread itself has spoilers galore for those who haven't read the books.

He's obviously biased, but he's now on record for saying:

When I first got the role, I said to my mum. 'If there is one thing I want to accomplish by doing this, it is to make the lovers of the book happy. I don't want it to be another Hollywood sci-fi piece of shit'. And from what I've seen so far, I can tell you that it is incredible.

Though he admits he hasn't seen the final cut.

Looks like Lionsgate is taking a boycott against the film seriously.

Ender's Game studio tries reaching out to the LGBT community

Quote:
As proud longtime supporters of the LGBT community, champions of films ranging from GODS AND MONSTERS to THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and a Company that is proud to have recognized same-sex unions and domestic partnerships within its employee benefits policies for many years, we obviously do not agree with the personal views of Orson Scott Card and those of the National Organization for Marriage. However, they are completely irrelevant to a discussion of ENDER’S GAME. The simple fact is that neither the underlying book nor the film itself reflect these views in any way, shape or form. On the contrary, the film not only transports viewers to an entertaining and action-filled world, but it does so with positive and inspiring characters who ultimately deliver an ennobling and life-affirming message. Lionsgate will continue its longstanding commitment to the LGBT community by exploring new ways we can support LGBT causes and, as part of this ongoing process, will host a benefit premiere for ENDER’S GAME.

Honestly I think that sets a bad precedent.

Reason is that as Liongates says, the movie has nothing to do with the gay community at all. It's a simple story about a boy who is forged by humanity to fight against the alien invaders.

I mean I don't mind watching Tom Cruises movies. Granted he's weird and all with his scientology but his movies are still good.

I mean if Liongates starts picking directors and workers simply because of their beliefs that's just discrimination the other way as well. IMO if they can a good job then let them to do it regardless of their skin color, beliefs, and sexuality. And also what does that say about the thousands of people that work in the film? Do they all have to be screened then?

'Enderís Game' Early Reviews Are In: Is It Any Good?:

"A couple months ago "Ender's Game" had the taint of bad buzz. The big-budget
sci-fi film adapted from Orson Scott Card's 1985 novel seemed all but doomed under
the weight of controversy involving Card's outspoken anti-gay views.

It hasn't helped that recent young adult book-to-screen adaptations such as
"Beautiful Creatures," "The Host," and "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" have
all flopped pretty hard at the box office.

But the early reviews are in and, while Summit might not quite have its new
"Twilight," things are definitely looking up."

I read somewhere that the twist in the book is known outright at the beginning of the movie, and the conflict relies on Ender not being aware of it as the movie goes on.
