Arriving in theaters on November 1, the final trailer for ‘Ender’s Game’ has been released by Summit, a good three months before its debut.
It can easily be said that this film is one of the most anticipated films coming out in the Fall not only due to the fact that it is based on a bestselling award winning novel, but also due to the controversy about the author that surrounds it. We will soon see if audiences are willing to separate the two.
Unlike some trailers, this one for ‘Ender’s Game’ doesn’t give too much away. It’s visually stunning and it looks like there is also a glimpse of the battle room. While it looks like this film will be an action packed ride, there is an underlying tone that that gives the movie its heart, and that is the story of Ender’s struggle with the immense pressure to succeed in Battle School as the weight of the world’s existence depends on him.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be seeing ‘Ender’s Game’!
In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics has 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 Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, 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.
‘Ender’s Game’ stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Moses Arias and Brandon Soo Hoo and opens in theaters on November 1.
