After almost a 9 month standstill the Ender’s Game Blog is active again and with some great news! Director Gavin Hood posted today a sneak peek of the soon to be revealed movie poster for Ender’s Game.
Along with the picture he mentions his relation to the novel and Ender himself. Stating that he, too, understands Ender’s “battles with authority figures he does not trust and his development as a leader”.
He also talks about space camp and the development of the battle room.
We are now well into post production and the famous zero gravity battle room scenes are looking fantastic. We started a year ago by sending our talented young actors off to a “space camp” to train under the guidance of real NASA astronauts. They learned to move in zero gravity environments and experienced the wonderful feeling of weightlessness. Mix in some truly incredible visual effects work and today we are looking at battle room scenes that will blow your mind!
That is just a taste of the sundae. The cherry on top is what he ends with:
Tomorrow you will get your very first look at the battle room with the reveal of the teaser poster on Yahoo! Movies. For now, enjoy a small tease of Ender’s feet at the gate! I wish I could show you more, but with just over six months to go before our Nov 1 release date, the poster will at least give you a small glimpse of what we are working towards.
Finally, tomorrow we will have a poster to identify our anticipated Ender’s Game movie. So stay tuned for the big reveal tomorrow!
