First Trailer For ‘Ender’s Game’ With Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield

Written by on May 7, 2013 

Last year we saw the Wachowskis take on what was thought to be unfilmable with an adaptation of Cloud Atlas and now this year’s ambitious sci-fi feature is Gavin Hood‘s Ender’s GameOrson Scott Card‘s classic sci-fi novel was released in 1985 and a film version has been in the works for decades and finally our first trailer has landed today.

Considering Hood’s last blockbuster work was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, we’re a bit hesitant of the outcome, but Summit is hoping this extended look at footage changes that notion. Check it out below, featuring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Moises Arias, Khylin Rhambo, Viola Davis and Nonso Anozie.

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.

Ender’s Game arrives on November 1st, 2013.
