Trailer Park Goes Big

'Ender's Game,' 'The World's End,' and 'The Butler'

Ender's Game
Ender's Game

The novel version of Ender's Game took home a Hugo Award and a Nebula Award, Edgar Wright won multiple awards for his zom-rom-com screenplay, and the cast of The Butler is one of the most star-studded lists in recent memory.

These are going to be big, so catch a little glimpse now in the Trailer Park.

Ender's Game

The Orson Scott Card favorite from your youth is finally coming to the big screen, and it features Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and young Asa Butterfield as the title character.

The World's End

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright are back for their third outing together after the success of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. A British fivesome's pub crawl reunion goes wrong when the realize the town isn't quite how they remembered it. Maybe you really can't go home again.

The Butler

We could try to sum up the story behind this Oscar bait film, but you already know the history, so just meet the unbelievable cast: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, and, we shit you not, Alan Rickman.
