Ender’s Game movie goodness

There are few things in life that excite me more than when film adaptations of my favorite books hit the big screen.

Since Ender’s Game is in my top five…well. There is a lot of squealing around here.

As far as I know and have heard for as long as I’ve been a huge fan of the book (20+ years?), this film has been decades in the making for obvious zero-gravity reasons.

And it’s time!

The trailer. (SQUEEE!)

The studio’s new “experiential” promotional site.

The IMDB page.

Some controversy.

What else have you heard/seen around the Interwebs about the film?
