* AllStarCast: Creator/HarrisonFord, Creator/BenKingsley, Creator/AbigailBreslin, and more.

* AllStarCast: Creator/HarrisonFord, Creator/BenKingsley, Creator/AbigailBreslin, and more. In fact, the marketing campaign made a point of including "Academy Award Nominee" and "Academy Award Winner" in front of every name that qualified to show just how many heavy hitters were in the cast. Even Harrison Ford's nomination for ''Film/{{Witness}}'' was included even though he normally doesn't have any awards or nominations mentioned above his credit.

* BoxOfficeBomb: The film was budgeted at $110 million not counting publicity, and it only made back $125 million worldwide. This is mainly due to an extremely poor marketing campaign that, in assuming that all audiences were familiar with the novel, not only made the story rather unclear, but suffered from [[UncertainAudience uncertainty about its target audience]], and the tight competition it faced from ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. The backlash the film received from the LGBT community due to Card's less-than-favorable views on homosexuality and gay marriage did not help Lionsgate one bit, despite director Gavin Hood and co-star Creator/HarrisonFord stating repeatedly that they support gay rights.
