I think we’ve been waiting something like forever for Ender’s Game to be made into a movie. Now that the premiere is drawing near the wait feels like forever² (That’s a real thing, right? I mean, you’ve been to the DMZ.).
Maybe it’s just me, but it’s also felt like this movie hasn’t had as much information pushed out as most other movies have. I actually had to work to find the Lionsgate official synopsis of the film on their site. No matter, though, because I’ve got the latest trailer here and it’s one seriously impressive piece of video.
At the end of this post I’ve linked a ton of Ender’s Game pages on all your favorite social sites, so check that stuff out so I don’t feel like I wasted my time. Help an old man out, will ya?
The space battles are, to use an overused word, epic. Think I’m being lazy by playing the “epic card”? Watch the trailer and prepare to have your jaw dropped.
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, distinguishing 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. Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by visionary author Orson Scott Card, ENDER’S GAME stars stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, with Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford.
