The Stars Align for Ender’s Game

The much anticipated Ender’s Game premiered last night, and the stars of the film turned out to get a first look at the movie adapted from Orson Scott Card’s awesome 1985 military sci-fi novel. The book won the Nebula Award and the Hugo Award for best novel and launched a whole series by Card about the brilliant strategist, Ender Wiggins.

Read it, yo. You’ll be so glad you did.

The book has long had a cult following, and the movie, co-produced by Orson Scott Card, looks like it might just do it justice. Ender’s Game premieres in theaters November 1st, but the stars of the film turned out for a showing last night.
