Despite having in his résumé some of the most important characters in science fiction movies, Harrison Ford hasn’t changed his mind about his love for that movie genre. However, he is back in the field with Ender’s Game.
“My taste in movies has nothing to do with my work. I’m not a big fan of science fiction” Harrison Ford said while promoting Ender’s Game, a film based on the bestseller by Orson Scott Card.
Harrison Ford thinks sci-fi is an important genre because it opens the doors of your imagination. He thinks science fiction opens the imagination “a little bit wider”.

Summit’s “Ender’s Game” is topping this weekend domestically with a projected $27 million bow. Congratulations to cast and crew!
First-night audiences gave a “B+” CinemaScore to “Ender’s Game,” which the distributor and backers Summit Entertainment, Odd Lot Entertainment and Digital Domain hope can launch a young adult franchise. The movie opened with an estimated $1.4 million from Halloween night preview shows in the U.S. The studio called the launch a “solid” start that placed it third for Thursday behind “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” at $1.8 million and “Gravity,” which took in $1.6 million in its 28th day for a domestic cume of $206 million.

Harrison Ford doesn’t care that Friday’s futuristic Ender’s Game is the first time he’s stepped back into space since Star Wars made him a star. “Doesn’t matter to me if I go back to outer space or not, the job’s the same,” said Ford.
Graff is the tough-as-nails mentor to adolescents, including Ender Wiggin, who are trained to defend Earth against aliens who had slaughtered 50 million people in the initial assault decades before “Ender” begins.

without reading the book.
Let’s face it. Some of us still can’t find time to finish the Orson Scott Card’s book the movie is based of. Not to mention if we take into account the entire Ender series. So, what do we need to know to understand and enjoy the movie?
Much like A Princess of Mars, Ender’s Game is an important novel that had a profound impact on the sci-fi genre, yet might not be familiar to many moviegoers. That’s what we’re here for. We’ve put together a guide to this unique sci-fi universes, telling you what you need to know about the characters, setting, and themes of Ender’s Game to be prepared for the movie when it hits on November 1.

Ender’s Game is heading to its big premiere in the US and lots of clips and pictures have emerged in the last few weeks. The movie stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin, and will open in theaters November 1st.
Ender’s Game teaser trailer, released earlier this year, gave an indication of what can be expected from the film. The final trailer, however, features a dramatic narrative by Harrison Ford who promises the aliens “will be back”. It’s all very visually appealing in a Star Wars-Superman-Terminator way and with the melodramatic music, intense exchanges and wild landscapes: it certainly appears to be a film fans of science fiction will love.

Nothing gets audiences in the seats like a Harrison Ford glare. Decades after his steely look on the poster for Raiders of the Lost Ark, studios are still using the stern Ford face to sell their film. With the debut of the Ender’s Game posters, it appears that Summit Entertainment is following a familiar strategy, and we’d be surprised if it didn’t put people in the seats!
Ender’s Game producer Bob Orci chats with What’s Trending at Nerd HQ at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 about the buzz surrounding his upcoming sci-fi film, based on Orson Scott Card’s classic novel.
Orci reveals that while a lot of the cast emerged from just being fans of the book, choosing Harrison Ford was an exciting process. “Well, you think you’re deciding on him, but really he’s deciding on you,” Orci says. “What he said when he read the script actually was that he’s offered a lot of sci-fi. He’s read a lot of sci-fi. And that this was one of the rare ones where he felt that actually not only was it a spectacle but it also had something to say and had a lot of emotion and that’s why he did it.”
