The gay organization Geeks Out is urging LGBT and heterosexual allies to boycott ’Ender’s Game‘, the big budget movie based on his 1985 novel, which has become one of the most beloved works in science fiction.

The film, by Summit Entertainment, is set to hit theaters on November 1st, 2013, and stars Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsly, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld, with Asa Butterfield portraying the title character. The film is widely considered to be Summit’s attempt to replace its completed ‘Twilight Saga‘ and many have pointed out similarities to the popular ‘Hunger Games‘ series.

Geeks Out has set up a website on which it urges fans in no uncertain terms to boycott the flick.



The group urges fans to spread the word to possibly unwitting fans, enlightening them to Card’s anti-gay rights stance and the fact that by paying money for anything ‘Ender’s Game’ related is very likely giving money to anti-gay rights and equality organizations, which Card does donate his money to.

It also suggests that fans create alternative events on November 1st. Geeks Out is throwing Anti-Ender’s Game celebrations in Chicago, Dallas, New York, Orlando, Seattle, and Toronto.
