Hey, this doesn’t look so bad at all! We have an exclusive first look at Colonel Hyrum Graff and Ender Wiggin in Summit Entertainment’s adaptation of Ender’s Game novel! Or, if you prefer – we finally have a chance to see young Asa Butterfield and his mentor Harrison Ford in the movie which comes from director Gavin Hood, and is already set to open next November! Check out the rest of this report to take a better look at the pic!
So, as we previously reported, Hood’s movie is an adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s novel of the same name which centers on an unusually gifted child sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future alien invasion.
Well, one thing is for sure – when your mentor is Harrison Ford, you have nothing to worry about. At least on a big screen.
But, beside Ford and Butterfield, the movie also stars Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dillmore, Andrea Powell, Moises Arias, Conor Carroll, Aramis Knight, Brendan Meyer, Jimmy “Jax” Pinchak, Suraj Parthasarathy and Khylin Rhambo.
Pretty interesting cast for a sci-fi movie, just saying…
In case you’ve missed 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 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.
Ender’s Game is set to open on November 1st, 2013.
