(Newser) – Futuristic flick Ender's Game played its way to the top this weekend, though its $28 million isn't much to cheer about for Summit Entertainment, the Los Angeles Times reports; Ender aims to lead a new teen franchise, the Hollywood Reporter notes. In second place was the still-sprightly Bad Grandpa from prankster Johnny Knoxville, with $20.5 million, just a 36% drop from opening last week. Last Vegas, which sees the likes of Morgan Freeman and Robert DeNiro headed to a bachelor party, rolled a three with $16.5 million. And flying into fourth place was the 3D-animated Thanksgiving feature Free Birds. Gravity, meanwhile, landed in fifth, with $13.1 million, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Monopolizing theatres with boring pieces of shi*t like this movie and then boasting that it "rules" the box office is a joke. Put the Entertainment Industry's films up against Indies and Hollywood loses every time. WHo cares about some guy wearing what looks like a motorcycle helmet and a cheap Power Rangers jump suit in this movie, surrounded by bozos playing the same characters theyve played already.in other films.

Knowing that it was written by Orson Scott Card kinda ruins the movie.

Whatever money OSC got for the movie he got last decade when it was optioned. If the movie is good, go and see it, I've heard good things about it. And all the other people involved don't deserve your hate. If you must protest, I'd do this: Send an amount of money equal to your ticket and concessions to the lgtbq charity of your choice. Now THAT would tick him off, and give people who get enough crap thrown at them some support. Remember that society is turning away from his bigoted views, and there's nothing he can do about that. =)
