The Earth was ravaged twice by the Buggers, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent their own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a quiet but brilliant boy, may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother and brought to battle school in orbit around earth. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise himself as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.
The first trailer for Ender’s Game has finally been released…and it looks pretty damn good.
Starring Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld and Viola Davis.
The sci-fi flick is directed by Gavin Hood, the director of Rendition and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He’s a good director, but he’s never topped his Academy Award winning flick, Tsosti. Fingers crossed this reaches the same heights.
ETA: USA – 1 November, 2013.
