TGIF at the Movies: Enders Game

  • This location is shown only to members

Join me for an evening of watching the film Enders Game which is set to open in Australia on 5 December.  Depending on the time of the film, the night's activities will also involve meeting before and/or after the film for drinks and food and I'm sure lively movie talk :)

Plan is to watch the 6:30pm session at Dendy Newtown.  Please make sure you have arrived by 6:15pm and purchased your ticket (you can alternatively also get your ticket through the Dendy website here).  Movie runs for 2 hours, after which the plan is to meet back at the Box Office and then head off to one of Newtown's many restaurants or pubs for some food and drink and chats and laughs.

Check out the trailer here:

Based on the critically acclaimed novel, ENDER'S GAME is an epic space adventure starring Hugo actor Asa Butterfield as a boy sent to fight a futuristic war. The highly anticipated film from X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Gavin Hood features an all star cast including Harrison Ford (INDIANA JONES), Ben Kingsley ('Schindler’s List'), Hailee Steinfeld ('True Grit'), Viola Davis ('The Help') and Abigail Breslin ('Little Miss Sunshine').

Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) is a shy, strategically brilliant boy who has been chosen to leave home and join the elite Military. The International Military only recruit and train the very best young adults to defend Earth from the hostile alien race called the Formics. As Ender excels at Battle School, he attracts the attention of the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford), who believes Ender to be the military’s next great hope. Ender must lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and the human race.

The film reunites Butterfield with his 'Hugo' co-star Ben Kingsley who plays Ender’s mentor, the heroic, half-Maori Commander Mazer Rackham, a living legend amongst the ranks of the Fleet after previously saving Planet Earth from total annihilation in an earlier alien invasion. Young star and fashion muse Hailee Steinfeld gives a gutsy performance as Ender’s Battle School companion, Petra Arkanian, whilst Abigail Breslin plays Ender’s older sister.

See you at the movies,

Yander :)

    Hi all - just letting you know that the cinema session times still have not been released, however I'm setting this event for Dendy Newtown. It's a great area with lots of options for food and drink before and/or after the show, and Dendy always has plenty of seating generally.

    If you're not a member of Dendy, please mention it as a few of us who are Dendy members can get you in on the members price which is generally $14 compared to the full price of $19.
