    Looks like a less horrible version of Immortals.

    Hope otherwise, but so far this looks like it's going to be another generic failure to adapt a classic story. Too much of what I have seen so far was created on a computer with, what appears to be, a bare minimum based in reality. Looks oversimplified.
    Saw the Trailer for John Carter yesterday before the Muppet movie. Looks good.

    Abigail Breslin Goes Sci-Fi With 'Ender's Game'; Harrison Ford Now Officially On Board | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

    Well, look who's all grown up! Abigail Breslin who first sauntered into our hearts as the pudgy Olive in "Little Miss Sunshine," and who recently flashed her bra in "New Year's Eve" is now ready to graduate into her first bonafide blockbuster movie.

    The actress will join the ranks of "Ender's Game," the long developing big screen take on the classic novel by Orson Scott Card. Set in the future, the story finds the Earth at war with an insectoid race named the Formics, and follows Ender (Asa Butterfield), one of a group of children being trained to be military commanders. Breslin will play Valentine Wiggin, Ender's older sister, and joins an increasingly impressive cast that now also includes Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford.

    Yes, that Harrison Ford. As you might recall, Indiana Jones was offered a role in the film last month and is now confirmed, taking on the part of Colonel Hyrum Graff, the Commander of Training for the International Fleet of young recruits. And over the weekend, it was revealed that up-and-comer Brendan Meyer (who kids know from the show "Mr. Young"), has also come aboard as one of the trainees under Ford, who is discovered to be a gifted strategist.

    UNDERWORLD LEGACY Trailer Catches Fans Up on Past Three Films

    With the fourth installment in the Underworld series, Underworld: Awakening, set to open next month, Screen Gems is ramping up the film’s marketing campaign. Today they’ve unveiled a new trailer entitled “Underworld: Legacy” which recounts the story of Kate Beckinsale’s Seline from the past three movies; it’s basically a “Previously on Underworld” short. While I’m not a huge fan of the series, I found this trailer to be quite cool. If you, like me, are hazy on the details of the franchise, this video neatly sums up the past events and gets you primed for Awakening. It also includes an intro from Beckinsale herself.

    CLOUD ATLAS Movie Image

    The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer are currently working on an adaptation of Cloud Atlas starring Halle Barry, Hugh Grant, Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, and Jim Sturgess. As someone who has not read the David Mitchell‘s book, it sounds very exciting. Mitchell tells six stories that span multiple continents and centuries. All the actors all playing multiple roles. The Wachowskis are directing one unit, Tykwer is directing a second unit in parallel. It’s all very ambitious stuff, and I am glad the Wachowskis still have the power to get this made after Speed Racer flopped.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation — the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
    This sounds like it could be Donnie Darko good or Southland Tales bad, either way I am sooooo in. I don't mind if movies fail if they are trying to go outside the norm like this one appears to be. Anyone read the book?

    Oh and Speed Racer kicks all kinds of ass.

    This is one of my all time favorite books. So much of it seemed to be what is going through Ender's mindl; I am consistently scared on how it could translate to the screen.

    If I am remembering correctly, the director wrote his own screenplay, so at the very least he is familiar with the source material.

    So, the only thing to worry about is if Card's nuttiness leaked onto the page?
