Vera Farmiga Is The Mother Of Evil Plus Ender's Game Photos

I may be in the minority here, but I am looking forward to the premiere of "Bate's Motel" on A&E. Freddie Highmore seems to be quite adept at pulling off the dead eyes and friendly-awkward demeanor while Vera Farmiga is the right mix of sexy, selfish, and slightly unhinged. A boy's best friend is his mother. His super hot, overprotective, f*cked up mother.

I've never read "Ender's Game". I'm sorry.

I understand the book is about Andrew "Ender" Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) going to International Military school to protect the world from alien invaders. We have a photo of Butterfield and Hailee Stanfield as Petra Arkanian. Arkanian is the only female in the Salamander Army. You can also spot Dink Meeker (Khylin Rhambo), and Bonzo Madrid (Moises Arias) at the table. (All of these names are stupid. Why are all the names so stupid? Then again, it makes sense that people of the future will have these types of names. Blue Ivy, Apple, Morocco, Kal-El, Blaise, Sundance, and Sin Halo are the names of the future, people.)

Speaking of Salamander Army, Collider has the different logos for the army sections of the school. There is Salamander, Asp, and Rat. There is also a logo described as a possible spoiler, so click at your own peril.

Collider also has a clip from Park Chan-wook's Stoker, starring Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, and Nicole Kidman. The clip is mostly silent and features Wasikowska's India with her Uncle Charlie (Goode).

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Batesian

    "Bate's"? *sigh*

  • Just what we need: MOAR serial killer porn.

  • ViciousTrollop

    I've been looking forward to Bates Motel but I'm not here for the CW style high school hijinks of Norman and his friends.

  • Rocabarra

    Blaise is a kickass name!!! Blaise Pascal, anyone? Inventor of Pascal's triangle, Pascal's equation, and all around mathematic and scientific badass?

  • KatSings

    "You can also spot Dink Meeker (Khylin Rhambo), and Bonzo Madrid (Moises Arias) at the table."

    Ok, the names of those actors are as cracked out as the characters. I had to remind myself how formatting that works so that I knew which was which. People are weird.

  • DarthCorleone

    I wonder if this Psycho prequel will take the Boardwalk Empire route in terms of screwed up mothering.

    I still don't know how in the world this Ender's Game movie is going to portray the big twist at the end. It works on the page, but I have trouble imagining how it could work on screen. Perhaps there won't be a twist at all.

  • BWeaves

    It's Hogwarts in SPACE!

    I read Ender for the first time a few months ago. I absolutely loved it and was psyched to read other books in the series. Then people I trust told me the author gets zealoty and homophobic and racist. I'm just going to enjoy the first one and not taint it.

  • alwaysanswerb

    Yeah, OSC is a noted bigot, but the books themselves are actually pretty progressive. It's a head-scratcher, really.

  • Green_Eggs_and_Hamster

    I don't know that the books get homophobic and racist. At least, not that I remember. Someone correct me if I am wrong, as it has been a long time since I read them, and I was a bit younger, maybe I just missed something. They get very different though. I actually enjoyed Speaker For the Dead and Xenocide, even though it was about as far removed conceptually from Ender's Game as you could get. Ender's Shadow was also pretty good, giving the story a twist from Bean's POV. I was fortunate in that I was able to read the books before I knew anything about the Author who has some beliefs that I find completely repellent.

    I actually have trouble reconciling the rather thoughtful and entertaining books of his that I have read with what I have read of his beliefs, and what I have read he has said. I just put it down to good a good editor. I certainly understand not wanting to give money to someone like Mr. Card, but perhaps that is what the library or the second hand book stores are for.

  • NateMan

    Oh, he does. I'm not sure about in the books, since I read Ender while still in high school and never went back for the others in the series, but Card is a vicious homophobe and board member for NOM. I'll never watch this movie or read another one of his books. I simply can't separate the material from the writer in this case.

  • Kala

    Freddie Highmore is growing into an incredibly handsome young man.

    And now I'm worried Chris Hansen is going to be hiding in my pantry.

  • Y'know...that's one origins story I never really had a desire for. Still don't, truth be told.
