Five character posters have arrived for Ender’s Game, the upcoming adaptation of Orson Scott’s sci-fi novel series. The film follows a young teen named Ender who must save the world from an impending alien invasion.

Check out the posters below.
After an alien race called the Formics (also known as the “Buggers”) attacks Earth, the International Fleet prepare for the next invasion by training the best young children to find the future leader to lead the International Military. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is pulled out of his Earth school to join International Fleet and attend the legendary Battle School in Space. After easily mastering the increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect among his peers, Ender is soon ordained by Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley) himself to lead the military into a war that will determine the future of Earth and the human race.
The Gavin Hood-directed film arrives in theaters on November 1st, 2013.
