Final ENDER’S GAME Trailer

Posted on August 6, 2013 at 9:28 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Summit Entertainment just released the final trailer for Ender’s Game. Director Gavin Hood’s adaptation of the Orson Scott Card classic follows Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a young boy sent away to Battle School to hone his military skills in order to save the world from an impending alien invasion. I am super excited for this film, as I finally read the book earlier this year.  The visuals look great, Harrison Ford looks the part, and I wish I were watching it right now.  Come on November, get here sooner.   Let us know what you think of the trailer, book, or the controversial author in the comment section below.

The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and Harrison Ford.  Ender’s Game opens November 1st.


Here’s the official synopsis for Ender’s Game:

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 Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.

Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, 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.

      The book was, and is, one of my favorite sci-fi novels. That being said, I’m having a little bit of a struggle trying to reconcile the content in the trailers with my memories of the book. I’m definitely going to see the movie, and I’m confident that I’ll enjoy it…but I’m not expecting it to be much in the way of a faithful representation of the novel.
