For those of you wondering when you'll get to see the first trailer for Gavin Hood's adaptation of Ender's Game, producer Roberto Orci has confirmed that it will debut in front of Star Trek Into Darkness, so that's gonna be awesome! So that gives us another cool thing to look forward to seeing on May 17th. I'm really hoping the first footage we see of the film blows the fans away.
Yesterday the first poster was released for the film, which is shown above featuring a teasing look at Asa Butterfield as Ender.
The movie also stars Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Moises Arias, Khylin Rhambo, Viola Davis, and Nonso Anozie. Ender’s Game hits theaters on November 1st, 2013.
In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.
Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distiguising himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
