The sci-fi genre has enjoyed a resurgence with a host of stories coming to the big screen. Another popular book has been adapted to the screen and here is the trailer for Ender’s Game.
The film tells the story after an alien race called the Formics (also known as the “Buggers”) attacks Earth, the International Fleet prepare for the next invasion by training the best young children to find the future leader to lead the International Military.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is pulled out of his Earth school to join International Fleet and attend the legendary Battle School in Space. After easily mastering the increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect among his peers, Ender is soon ordained by Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley) himself to lead the military into a war that will determine the future of Earth and the human race.
Ender’s Game is based on the novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card. The film is written and directed by Gavin Hood, and in addition to Butterfield will lead a talented ensemble that includes Ford, Kingsley, Aramis Knight, Hailee Steinfeld, Jimmy Pinchak, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin.
Ender’s Game will open in theaters on November 1.
