Jake has always been an ordinary boy but when he finds himself on a small island, things begin to happen that few people would be able to explain. His new friend, a beautiful young girl named Emma seems to be able to perform miraculous occurrences start to happen.
Things become a little clearer - yet utterly more baffling - when he's taken to meet Miss Peregrine at her exceptional orphanage for children. As Jacob is quick to learn, each of Miss Peregrine's kids has a special ability, something unique to them. Emma can control oxygen and must wear hefty boots to keep her feet firmly attached to the ground, whilst Bronwyn is a little girl with incredible physical strength.
Miss Peregrine is the protector of the children and acts as their matriarch. To keep them safe she's formulated a way of manipulating time to keep the kids away from dangerous monsters who hunt them down - however, as the dark forces become stronger the Children are placed in more and more danger - unbeknownst to Jacob, perhaps he holds the key to keeping his new friends safe.

Asa Butterfield has reportedly entered into talks to star in the 'Spider-Man' reboot.
The 18-year-old actor, who starred in 'Ender's Game' in 2013, is among a select group of actors being strongly considered for the coveted role.
There are five actors currently being eyed for the part of a high school-aged Peter Parker in Marvel's eagerly-awaited reboot of the sci-fi franchise, but Asa is the current front-runner, according to Deadline.

Asa Butterfield, The Child Star Of Martin Scorsese's Hugo And Sci-fi Movie Ender's Game, Is Reportedly In Negotiations To Play The Big Screen's Latest Spider-man.
The young Brit will take on the role of Peter Parker's web-slinging alter-ego in next year's (16) Captain America: Civil War, according to Latino-Review.com and multiple movie news websites, if he lands the role.
Reports suggest the new Spider-Man will then appear in his own movie, scheduled for the summer of 2017.
Marvel bosses behind the Captain America and Spider-Man films have yet to confirm the latest casting news. Andrew Garfield was the last actor to don the Spidey suit in The Amazing Spider-Man and last year's (14) The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

With a gentle current of comedy, this relaxed British drama finds some cleverly involving ways of approaching the concept of grief, specifically how various people need to deal with their inner pain in their own ways. It's a strikingly observant film that's also thoroughly engaging thanks to a terrific cast of actors who are given the space to develop their characters in organic ways we can easily identify with.
As a young boy, Nathan (Edward Baker-Close) folds into himself when his father (Martin McCann) is killed in a car crash. His optimistic mother Julie (Sally Hawkins) doesn't quite know how to deal with either his natural mathematical ability or his autistic inability to relate to people, but she does the best she can. And it's when he hits his teen years (now Asa Butterfield) that he begins to open up to his bristly tutor Humphreys (Rafe Spall), who encourages Nathan to travel to Taiwan to train with the British team for the International Mathematical Olympiad. In Taipei, Nathan has even more challenges as he learns to work with both the team coach Richard (Eddie Marsan) and his local study partner Mei (Jo Yang). And as Nathan begins to understand who he is, Julie also discovers that maybe she can cope after all.
Director Morgan Matthews and screenwriter James Graham have a remarkably light touch with the plot, allowing events to unfold naturally while never pushing the sentiment. They also thankfully figure out an inventive way to make a movie packed with mathematical formulae that actually feel meaningful to even the most maths-phobic member of the audience. Impressively, this lets the film get into Nathan's perspective to reveal how he sees the world and interacts with the people around him. And Butterfield plays the role with raw honesty that completely wins us over.

Nathan (Asa Butterfield) is different. He has an amazing way with numbers - something which will one day lead him to huge success. But for now, Nathan is unable to talk to anyone other than his father, but after he is tragically killed in a car accident, Nathan feels alone. Fast forward a few years, Nathan can relate to no one and spends all his time working on maths equations. With help from his tutor, the lovable Humphreys (Rafe Spall) and his mother Julie (Sally Hawkins), Nathan gets into the prestigious International Mathematics Olympiad and takes a trip to Taiwan to train and hone his abilities. With a steadily growing relationship with Zhang Mei (Jo Yang), a fellow contestant, Nathan could be ready to learn to love.

'Ender's Game' has slipped under the radar, landing a nice box-office haul and above average reviews.
Remember when The Butler somehow raked in about $3 trillion at the box-office despite, well, not being very good? I think at the time we called it the box-office success story of the year, but it now has competition in the form of Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield's Ender's Game.

Firstly, we assumed this movie was going to be horrible. Most people did. The trailer wasn't overly convincing and, well, sci-fi flicks are often quite bad. Writer Orson Scott-Card's homophobic views left many apparently committed to boycotting the movie. But it wasn't horrible. For a family sci-fi flick, the reviews were extremely favourable and Ender's Game was hailed as one of the better space in recent years. Our own Rich Cline said the movie actually adresses some "punchy subjects" in his review.

The film has distanced itself from the notoriously homophobic author who has announced 'Ender's Game' sequels.
Orson Scott Card has announced that he plans to write more books in the Ender's Game series after the renewed interest in his work that the upcoming action movie adaptation has brought. The author of many successful sci-fi novels, Card is known for his skill in envisaging a futuristic Earth with clever new technology.
Asa Butterfield Plays The Titular Ender.
Adapted by director Gavin Hood, the movie has debuted on top in the US, having raked in $28 million in its opening weekend. Set 70 years after the invasion of an alien race known as the Formics, the movie sees Asa Butterfield plays Ender Wiggin who is recruited by the International Fleet to join the Battle School in outer space due to his skill for logic and strategy. Ender is unaware of how much hope is being put on him to be Earth's hero and his ability to make the right choice in a difficult decision leaves him with a sense of bitter self-loathing.

Tomorrow’s a big day: The iPad Air is out, Halloween is done for another year, and Harrison Ford stars in the cinematic remake of Orsen Scott Card’s sci-fi epic, Ender’s Game.

The former will affect gadget freaks, people with money and Apple employees; Halloween ending affects us all – it just doesn’t really matter – but how will Ender’s Game’s release affect you: should you go and see it?

Since this entire story centres on virtual-reality gaming, it's tricky to feel any sense of what's at stake here. But a strong cast and above-average effects work help hold our interest until the requisite dramatic shift takes hold. Along the way, the movie explores some punchy issues such as the nature of true leadership and the morality of war.
It's set in a distant future: Earth has regrouped after an alien invasion, turning to children to harness their quick gaming reflexes and inner fearlessness. Ender (Butterfield) is a 12-year-old who's sure he'll crash out of training like his older sister Valentine (Breslin). But Colonel Graff (Ford) and Major Anderson (Davis) see something in him and send him on to battle school in an orbiting space station. As he shows true leadership potential and a sharp mind for warfare, he's promoted even further, training with iconic hero Rackham (Kingsley) on one of the aliens' former planets. And as he approaches his final exam, there's the sense that the fate of Earth hangs in the balance.
Yes, everything Ender does throughout his training is game related, either with digitally created environments or in a weightless battle globe with other cadets. This adds huge possibilities for the script to grapple with moral issues as Ender faces some staggering decisions. But since it's just a simulation, does it really mean anything? Thankfully, Butterfield is a terrific actor who lends the character a steely interior life that catches our interest. And being surrounded by the terrific Ford, Kingsley and Davis helps. As do some intriguing fellow recruits played by Steinfeld, Arias and others.

The final trailer Ender's Game has been released. The film is due to be released later this year and stars a host of young actors, supported by more established cast members such as Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley.
The final trailer for Ender's Game has been released. Set in the future years after an alien-human war, the movie follows Ender Wiggin, a talent young boy who is sent to a military space academy in order to prepare for when aliens next invade Earth.

Ender's Game teaser trailer, released earlier this year, gave an indication of what can be expected from the film. The final trailer, however, features a dramatic narrative by Harrison Ford who promises the aliens "will be back". It's all very visually appealing in a Star Wars-Superman-Terminator way and with the melodramatic music, intense exchanges and wild landscapes: it certainly appears to be a film fans of science fiction will love.
