A teaser for the trailer of Ender’s Game, already the year’s most controversial film due to the strong antigay stance of the book’s author Orson Scott Card, has been released.
The futuristic film follows Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, trained by Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) to prepare for an attack on Earth. The official trailer will premiere tomorrow and the film will open in theaters November 1.
LGBT activists, fearful that profits from Ender’s Game will help fill the hateful pockets of Card, plan a boycott. Lionsgate, the studio releasing the film, issued a statement to distance itself from Card’s views and actions. Will you boycott or will you pay to see it in theaters this fall?
