  • Actor Harrison Ford speaks during a Lionsgate Motion Picture Group presentation to promote the upcoming film 'Ender's Game' at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace during CinemaCon, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners, on April 18, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Gay-rights activists are already calling for a boycott of the film "Ender's Game," which is based on Orson Scott Card's book of the same name, due to the author's anti-LGBT stance, according to The Huffington Post.

"Ender's Game," for those non-nerdballs in the audience, is a sci-fi classic about an imperiled mankind in a dystopian future, which according to Card is probably not as bad as a world in which "dysfunction" is "normalized" through LGBT acceptance.

Speaking like Darth Vader, he wrote in the Mormon Times, "Marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down."

The film is due out in the fall.
