The Ender’s Game production hasn’t completely shied from some pre-release peeks, with the crew having set up a Tumblr page that, while not visually loquacious or anything, gives a few here-or-there hints as to the production design being employed by Gavin Hood.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
