Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff would like to recruit you to enroll in the International Fleet’s battle school to train for the war against the Buggers. In other words, Summit Entertainment is rolling out a little bit of viral marketing in the form of a recruitment video for their Ender’s Game movie.
Col. Graff (Ford) explains the significance of an awesome dog fight along with the movie’s official website at IF-Sentinel.com where you can take an aptitude test to see if you are eligible, but it’s essentially just a Facebook social tool.
We also recently posted six Comic-Con 2013 character posters featuring Col. Graff (Ford), Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), Petra Arkanian (Hailee Steinfeld), Major Gwen Anderson (Viola Davis), Sergeant Dap (Nonso Anozie), and Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley).
Directed by Gavin Hood, the film opens on November 1st, 2013 .
Check out both videos after the jump.
Here’s the 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 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.
