It is difficult to believe that a big-budget version of Ender’s Game is finally going to be playing at your local multiplex this weekend. It’s taken 28 years for a film to finally be made based upon the beloved book. After many, many aborted attempts, false starts, and different scripts, I questioned whether the version of the film we ended up with would be any good. Does it live up to the promise of the book? Is it as generic as its trailers might imply? Is it at all coherent in its attempt to tell the story of a book that is hundreds of pages long?

After the jump, I share my thoughts on the film in under 2 minutes.

Harrison Ford Han Solo

Though casting for Star Wars Episode VII has not yet been made official, once piece is all but assured. Harrison Ford is coming back as Han Solo. This was first reported in February by Latino Review and Ford himself all but confirmed it on The Graham Norton Show in the UK. So while Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to comment on any of this, it seems pretty likely. Now, the latest rumor gives a bit more details on his potential return.

Apparently, Ford had quite a few stipulations that had to be met for him to return for Star Wars Episode VII. And they were. Among the rumored stipulations were assurances progress would be made on Indiana Jones 5 (an idea he’s more excited about than Star Wars) and he wanted approval on Solo’s arc in not only Episode VII, but beyond. Meaning, yes, the character should survive into following films.
