‘Ender’s Game’ is rapidly approaching its November 1st release date. Directed by Gavin Hood, the movie version of the Orson Scott Card novel stars Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dillmore, Andrea Powell, Moises Arias, Conor Carroll, Aramis Knight, Brandon Soo hoo, Jimmy “Jax” Pinchak, Suraj Parthasarathy and Khylin Rhambo.
Though the title character is portrayed by Butterfield, the young actor isn’t yet am “A-list star” (although this film could change that), so Summit Entertainment is focusing on the more bankable adult stars in its promotions. Sci-Fi legend Harrison Ford is showcased in these eight clips, which also feature Butterfield as well as Academy Award nominee Viola Davis who portrays Major Gwen Anderson and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley who plays stern taskmaster Mazer Rackham.
The first clip is closer to a traditional trailer:
The following are just short clips from the movie that give you a short glimpse of the acting on display. (Sorry, there is an ad that runs before each one!)
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.
