Summit Entertainment has released the first poster for director Gavin Hood’s (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) adaption of the Orson Scott Card sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game. The film tells the story of Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a young boy sent away to Battle School to hone his military skills and, hopefully, save the world from an impending alien invasion. This debut poster gives us a first look at the “Battle Room,” which is where Ender refines his war games skills. Fans of the book should be sufficiently tantalized, and this one-sheet should hold them over until we see the first trailer, which is expected to debut tomorrow.

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

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 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.
