[News Bites] New Looks At ‘Ender’s Game,’ ‘Under the Dome’; IFC’s ‘Tied’ & ‘Berberian’ Dated

Enders Game

The new issue of EW shares a new look at both Ender’s Game, starring Ben Kingsley, as well as the Stephen King adaptation “Under the Dome.” We also have the theatrical and VOD trailer for IFC’s Tied, and a crappy new one sheet for their Berberian Sound Studio (review).

Game, starring Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, and Hailee Steinfeld star. Ender’s Game, directed by Gavin Hood, opens theatrically on November 1st. “70 years after a horrific alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion.

“‘Under the Dome’ is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.” The 13-episode summer series will premiere June 24th on CBS. It stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy, and Aisha Hinds.

Next, we have the trailer for IFC’s Tied, directed by Helene Fillieres and based on the hit novel Severe by Regis Jauffret. It was inspired by the true story of a murder trial that mesmerized the French public in 2009. It opens May 3rd via digital outlets iTunes, SundanceNOW, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune, PS3 Unlimited and more. “One spring evening the Banker encounters a glamorous Young Woman. He is a man of enormous power and wealth, and that night she becomes his mistress. Together they enter a world of dark erotic desire– the desire to submit and be dominated, to possess and to be possessed, to be forced past all limits. Their games grow ever wilder, ever more dangerous, and when he promises her a huge sum of money to be his – then rejects her – the deadly bond between them is sealed.

Lastly, Berberian Sound Studio, also out via IFC on June 14, “Set in 1976: Gilderoy is hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by Italian horror maestro, Santini. As time and realities shift, Gilderoy is lost in a spiral of sonic and personal mayhem, and has to confront his own demons in order to stay afloat.” Toby Jones stars.

    I am not going to see Ender’s Game. At least, I won’t pay for it. I do not support the author of the novel (Orson Scott Card). He is strongly against LGBTs and is a member of a hate group. Here is a quote directly from him: “The dark secret of homosexual society—the one that dares not speak its name—is how many homosexuals first entered into that world through a disturbing seduction or rape or molestation or abuse, and how many of them yearn to get out of the homosexual community and live normally.”

    He may has his first amendment right to say this. But I have my right to be against such barbaric lunacy. Ender’s Game is great. However, I am not going to give him one pinch of my penny to bully someone else…someone who is more than likely younger than me and I am only 20.

      I didn’t know that … I don’t understand any type of bigotry. So stupid and such a waste of time / effort …

    I’m not going to see Ender’s Game either, but it’s for a totally different reason. The book sucked. It was boring and had the most telegraphed “twist” at the end out of anything I have ever read. Seriously, it sucked monkey balls.
