It’s been a rough summer for movies, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the year is going suck. In fact, there could be some big box office windfalls this Fall with the next Hunger Games movie, the next big Marvel installment, and a potential sleeper hit with the sci-fi film Gravity.
There’s little doubt that Ender’s Game is going to be one of the biggest movies of the fall. It’s a beloved sci-fi novel that’s had a loyal following for many years, and the fans have been anticipating a movie adaptation for a long time.
The Expendables is pretty much the Love Boat for action stars: A place where the washed up can still get a gig. And yes, Harrison Ford may be past his glory days, but we are genuinely surprised to learn he’s coming aboard the Sly Stallone franchise, replacing Bruce Willis.
The news is all over the place about Ender’s Game, and the controversy surrounding the film. The adaptation of one of the most popular science fiction books in recent memory is highly anticipated among geeks, but many are in an uproar about Orson Scott Card’s views against gay marriage.
At TGD, we’ve been anxiously following the production and upcoming release of Ender’s Game, which sci-fi fans have been eagerly anticipating for decades. The trailer looks good, and it’s got a real shot at being the genre event of the year. However, there is a controversy with Ender’s Game that won’t go away, and it could cause the film a lot of trouble: Author Orson Scott Card’s anti-gay marriage stance.
Harrison Ford is not what you’d call an excitable guy. Actually, a lot of times when you see him in interviews, you wonder how soon he’ll nod off and fall asleep.
Lately, you can't help but get the feeling that quite a lot of serious, award winning actors secretly want to do a geek role.
This summer we have two highly anticipated genre films that the fans have been waiting for forever: Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3.
When it comes to genre worship, enthusiasm and sincerity is all that really matters, not the color of your skin, nationality, or sexual preference.
