Summit Entertainment has revealed the full synopsis for Ender’s Game. Fans of the Orson Scott Card classic will find nothing new here, but those unfamiliar with the story beware of spoilers.  There are no major surprises ruined, but it does give away a lot of the progression of title character Ender Wiggin’s promotions in the Battle School.

Starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin, writer/director Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game will open in theaters November 1st, 2013.

Official synopsis;

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 (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa 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.

    • I am so flipping excited for this! Ender's Game is probably my favorite science fiction novel of all time, even if OSC is kind of a crazy person.

      BORING!!! I hope the movie is more exciting than the book.
