  1. Hmm. There are so many good ones! Graphically, I think I like the 1st one the best. I think, as a poster for the film, it lets you in on enough to be interested, gets you excited to see the movie, but doesn’t confuse someone who hasn’t read the books. I love that the movie’s tag line is “the enemy’s gate is down.” Absolutely love it! All of these posters are fantastic!

  2. My favorite is definitely the “At game end… The truth begins” (#13). So many parts of the book are represented in the one poster!

  3. The third is clearly the best. It gets to the point and conveys the atmosphere of the story without making references people who haven’t read the book won’t understand.

  4. All are good designs, but my favorite is the Full Metal Jacket parody poster. I think it’s No. 10. Using the Enemy’s Gate Is Down on the helmet in place of Born to Kill is a great touch. It’s a fun poster with a shout out to a classic movie.

  5. I like almost all of these poster ideas but #13 “At Game END.. The Truth Begins ” stands out the most I love it! Its got great color choices and the I like that it shows students and ships as one in it. And their is even a door on the Bugger planet that they are all pointing to. I like that he took it out into space to the bugger world and not in the battle room. And the rocks coming up around the base of the planet make it seem as its being destroyed. That and for the little fact that the “s” on Ender’s Game is the body of the student in the flash suit as well. I think it show great design.

  6. Oups, didn’t mean to press post there, so please connect these to posts.

    The Hive Queen poster is my favorite because I have read the books following enders game, and I personally think that the Formics/Buggers/Whatever you choose to call them deserve forgiveness, also I find it clever that inside the hive queen outline there are stars, showing that, [SPOILER ALERT] the hive queen left to the stars with Andrew too seek refuge on a new planet where humans will not do harm to them. (One more thing, speaker for the dead was my favorite book of the Ender series, other then Enders Game, of course).

  7. Loved the propaganda posters and the ones for The Hegemon and the The Hive Queen, but number 13 was particularly poignant. I would love to see it as a cover on the books. Though, I suppose if I had to pick one I want to see on my wall, I would pick number 2. Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. . .
