At long last the "movie that couldn't be made" is coming to the big screen.
Six year old Ender Wiggin is recruited by the International Fleet to train as a commander in the war against the Formics, an alien race from far away who've declared war on, and nearly destroyed the Human race. As part of his training Ender leads children in mock battles. Or are they?
Ender's Game is considered science fiction for people who don't like science fiction. A very human story and highly character driven, Ender's Game has received both the Nebula and the Hugo awards for science fiction writing. The author of the book Orson Scott Card has often said that Ender's Game could never be filmed as the story takes place in Ender's head, but years of attempts and many re-writes later Card believes they may have captured the books essence on film.
If you are a fan of science fiction you probably already know this story and are as excited as I am to see it. If you aren't a fan of science fiction, this may just be the story that changes your point of view, either way why not join me in seeing Ender's Game.
