In “Ender’s Game,” Asa Butterfield plays Ender, a bright young boy who’s been handpicked by Colonel Graff (played by Harrison Ford) to save the entire world and human race. No pressure. Colonel Graff is dead set on the boy, much to the hesitation of his colleagues, Mazer (Ben Kingsley) and Major Gwen Anderson (Viola Davis), both of whom believe that the boy is not ready. Are they right or can Ender step up and save the world? You will have to wait and find out a few weeks from now… unless you’ve read the book. If you’ve read the book, there probably won’t be any surprises here. But hey, Harrison Ford is in it! Plus, the kid from “Hugo”! And Ben Kingsley has a giant tattoo on his face! If that still does not pique your interest, perhaps these seven different clips from the film will help.

As long as there has been talk about the developing "Blade Runner" sequel, Harrison Ford's name has been in the mix, even though it doesn't make much sense narratively. "I don't think it'll be Harrison [starring]. But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing," Ridley Scott said last year, and it seems he's not joking.

The film scene has gone too long without seeing Kimberly Peirce's name up on a screen — five years since the release of the director's second film, “Stop-Loss,” and nine years before that with her acclaimed 1999 debut, “Boys Don't Cry.” But while the latest occasion for Peirce behind the camera guides her down a new avenue into horror, helming a remake of “Carrie” starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, there were many intriguing directions explored in the years before it, as a recent profile reveals.

While Ramin Bahrani's leap to the slightly-bigger-time earlier this year with "At Any Price" didn't quite work, we still admired the hell out of the movie. Putting the plot aside, which is perhaps too overstuffed for its own good, with some genre elements that don't quite work, Bahrani's study of middle American values coming up against corporate ethics (among other things) was fascinating, as was his look at the divergent dreams between a father and his son. So, that's why we're very excited for his next effort "99 Homes," and after lining up Andrew Garfield to star, things have gotten even more interesting...

Well this will certainly be a change of pace for actor we're used to seeing wearing a hoodie and saying "Bitch" more often and better than anyone. Ridley Scott's "Exodus" is ramping up its casting and has an interesting slate of names coming aboard.

Marvel doesn't have any movies in theaters for a few months yet but that doesn't really stop the promotion machine one iota. "Iron Man 3" hits home video next month and so the studio's push for the moment is trying to wring some more dollar out of a flick that already crossed $1 billion at the box office.

Marvel doesn't just make a ton of money because their movies are big at the box office, they're savvy marketers, often finding multiple revenue streams for their characters and movies so that they keep the money rolling in. As per usual, the upcoming "Iron Man 3" DVD/Blu-ray will be packed with goodies for fans to dig into and more importantly, give them a reason to own it.

Ender's Game
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" won't be the only film this fall boasting an array of wacky names. The sci-fi blockbuster "Ender's Game" will be bringing folks named Ender, Mazer, Hyrum and Bonzo to tell Orson Scott Card's futuristic tale of kid killers in space (or something) and as yesterday's preview of the final trailer suggested, it's going big or going home.

Ender's Game
Dancing around a controversy spurred by homophobic author Orson Scott Card, and continuing to remain somewhat of a question mark among the remaining blockbusters of the year, it could be argued that "Ender's Game" still has a considerable mountain to climb. But tomorrow will mark the start of the last major push for the movie with the unveiling of the final trailer (which means that you're going to see this spot on repeat in cinemas forever, or at least it will feel like that between now and November).

Ender's Game
Awkward. Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment have taken the young adult sci-fi film "Ender's Game" to Comic-Con to market it to the masses. And the first question to come out of the mouths of audiences? Asking how involved "Ender's Game" author Orson Scott Card is in the making of the movie. Card, has stirred major unwanted controversy around the movie with his bigoted anti-gay comments, something that Lionsgate is doing their best to distance themselves from, and they were probably hoping no on would ask at the gigantic, supposed-to-be light trade show.
