Summit Entertainment has released a second theatrical trailer for their upcoming science fiction film Ender’s Game. The film is directed by Gavin Hood and stars Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, and Ben Kinglsey. Based on the classic science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game will hit 2D theaters and IMAX on November 1.
The film takes place 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 (Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (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.
Card’s novel was released in 1985. Ender’s Game won the 1985 Nebula Award for best novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for best novel. The novel was followed by six subsequent books in the series.
