Ender's Game Film Nothing Like The Book

If you're wondering how the big-screen rendition of Orson Scott Card's acclaimed sci-fi novel Ender's Game is shaping up, you're in luck—the author just got back from the set and has written all about it. What stood out to him the most? Apparently the fact that he didn't actually recognize a lot of it.

Card recorded a small cameo in the movie and watched a bit of the filming while he was on set. He says it's definitely director Gavin Hood's vision of the material, and he warns that some hardcore fans of the book might be a bit shell-shocked.

"The scene [I watched] does not come from the book—very few of the scenes in this movie do—so it was amusing when others asked me how it felt to have my book brought to life. My book was already alive in the mind of every reader," he wrote. "This is writer-director Gavin Hood's movie, so they were his words, and it was his scene."

But don't worry, folks. Changes or not, Card said he really liked what he saw, noting: "The movie Ender's Game is going to look great."

If you're interested in some of the minutiae of the adaptation, Card's lengthy set visit recap is worth checking out. He breaks down everything from the Battle Room setup to the character portrayals, and it sounds like he really was impressed overall.

Sound off: Are you intrigued, or terrified, by Card's on-set update

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
