Featuring Asa Butterfield (the adorable little boy from HUGO) as Ender as well as Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis, and Ben Kingsley, ENDER'S GAME looks like a promising adaptation of a beloved novel.
We can't wait to see the all-star cast bring this story to life.
In case you aren't familiar with ENDER'S GAME, here's the book description :: In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut--young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training. see more on Ender's Game

We've been excited about the film adaptation of THE GREAT GATSBY ever since it was announced.
Carey Mullligan is the perfect cast for the iconic Daisy Buchanan, and nobody but Leo DiCaprio could be Gatsby.
If you've never read the novel, here's the book description :: This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s. see more on The Great Gatsby

Okay. Confession time. We're obsessed with The Hunger Games. Both the movie and the book.
We can't wait to see the jungle-and-beach that is the arena of The Quarter Quell. Parts of the film were filmed in Hawaii - but the quell is nowhere close to a vacation. Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are joined by newcomers Sam Claflin and Jena Malone to fight for the death in the 75th annual Hunger Games.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
In case you've been living under a rock and haven't read the book, here's a description :: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. see more on Catching Fire

About the Book :: The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. see more on World War Z
