Yup due out around Thanks Giving, with Harrison Ford as Col Graff. I'm interested in seeing how Ford does "a bit dumpy and unkept" Graff.

Looking forward to it.

I haven't read the book, but based on the trailer the Ender's movie looks like a mashup of Starship Troopers (1997) and Tron (1987). Unfortunately it appears par for the course as far as sci-fi interpretations go these days. Competent actors drowning in a sea of gee-wiz FX.

Was it ever different? In the 1950s Robert Heinlein worked briefly in Hollywood on the script for a movie by director George Pal. The experience was so frustrating for him that he vowed never to do anything like it again.
