Ender's Game First Full-Length Trailer Fails to Resonate

I'm not ruling out the possibility that Ender's Game could be great, and God knows I want it to be (despite Orson Scott Card's brand of homophobic crazy, I am in awe of his novel). But the trailer, sadly, doesn't really connect. It feels ... sterile, like one of those bland attempts to duplicate a novel that's too on the nose. It has no spark or wit.

Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis and Ben Kingsley and, at least in the trailer, it's grimness for as far as the eyes can see.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
