Ender's Game Movie: Let the Online Marketing Begin... and Continue


After much wait, it seems that the Ender's Game Movie marketing has been turned on. You might have read that that Cryptozoic Entertainment, who will be producing a trading card set for the movie, released what was described as a "1 minute and a half long" trailer of the movie with "raw footage" and special effects (c/o Endersansible.com)  to attendees at the GAMA Trade show in Las Vegas,NV.

Reviews were positive, and you can glean more about that from tweets from the lucky attendees included in posts on the fandom websites. (Endernews.com, Enderwiggin.net, Endersansible.com)

But wait ladies and  gentlemen there's more:

Not only are they sprucing up the 1st trailer for mass distribution, it appears that the other gears of online marketing like websites and social media campaigns are cranking up too.

Facebook, you mean? No, not just Facebook! Yes, they already have an official page and you can visit here, http://www.facebook.com/EndersGame. That's been up for some months.

I'm talking about standalone websites and a presence in more Social media venues that the public can engage and consume info. about the movie.

THE DEDICATED MOVIE SITE:

http://www.endersgame-themovie.com

No, there is nothing there now, but it now points to the Summit Entertainment website. (That wasn't the case about week ago). You can visit the subpage for Ender's Game which features a crisper logo and...


A couple "active" links. If you click on the "Visit the Official Page button" it will take you too...


What the?!! A bad link! That might be intentional because they might not be ready yet. (If it's not, please fix , Summit Web Team.) If you look at "The requested..." line, at the end you have the URL of what might be

A ENDER'S GAME MOVIE COMPANION SITE:

http://www.if-sentinel.com

Right now if you click it, you are directed to the Summit Entertainment homepage, but in the near future it might be a companion site that hosts games, downloads, info, etc.

Lastly,

The "OFFICIAL" TWITTER ACCOUNT FOR THE ENDER'S GAME MOVIE.

https://twitter.com/EndersGameMovie

I put quotes around that because there have been some that give the impression, but are not. No shade just facts.

If you are on Twitter, follow them now, and let them know we are glad they made it!
