The movie is now in “Post-Production” and we got a glimpse of “The Gate”. Post from Ender’s Game Official Tumblr:
As we’ve now reached the end of principal photography on ENDER’S GAME, it seems fitting to take a step back and acknowledge the two people responsible for giving such vivid life to the imaginary world in which we’ve spent the past many months immersed.
And when we say immersed, we truly mean it.

(Space.com) Hollywood seems to have caught alien fever.
In the past few months, a slew of big-budget alien movies has hit theaters, from kiddie flicks (“Mars Needs Moms”) to comedies (“Paul”) to high-octane action films (“Battle: Los Angeles,” “Green Lantern” and the just-released “Cowboys & Aliens,” among others). And many more such movies are on the way, both this year and next.

Alcon Entertainment stirred up a hurricane of controversy when it acquired the rights to produce prequels and sequels to Blade Runner. Since its release in 1982, Blade Runner has cultivated a reputation as one of the all-time great science fiction movies. Alcon co-founders/co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove acquired the property because they, too, are fans of the property. But they must tread carefully to avoid keep from alienating the core fanbase, a very protective bunch.

Here we are at the end of our count down and it’s Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner that tops our poll, it’s also a second appearance for actor Harrison Ford. Loosely based on Philip K.Dick’s short story, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and was released in 1982. The story follows policeman Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who is hunting four cloned humanoids, known as replicants. Replicants are illegal and Deckard, a blade runner, has been brought out of retirement to catch them as he is a specialist in exterminating them. Whilst on the surface being an action movie it also looks into themes of religion, morals and the human race’s mastery of genetic engineering. Blade Runner is also filled with nods to the film noir genre with ideas of the femme fatal and the questionable moral outlook of the movie’s hero running through it.
