Summit has debuted the second trailer for Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game. The film, based on Orson Scott Card’s popular 1985 sci-fi novel, stars Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin, a brilliant boy who attends an advanced military school in space to prepare for an impending alien invasion. Check out the new trailer and poster 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.
Am I the only one who thinks this doesn’t look all that great? Maybe I will be surprised. Ender’s Game will arrive in conventional and IMAX theaters on November 1st. The cast includes Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, and Abigail Breslin. What do you think of the new trailer?
