The last time we saw Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), he stood guard behind Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford). This time not only do we see Butterfield’s Ender Wiggin again, but you get your first look at Hailee Steinfeld as Petra Arkanian.
Furthermore, Khylin Rhambo as Dink Meeker can be seen right, next to Ender, and Moises Arias as Bonzo Madrid can be found at the end of the table on the left, so the full shot gives us a wider look at the entire Mess Hall and scoreboard, where they’re eating with the Salamander Army.
The film, written and directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) also stars Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis and Nonso Anozie.
We have yet to see a preview trailer for the Ender’s Game movie in theaters starting November 1st, 2013, based on Orson Scott Card‘s beloved 1985 novel of the same name.
Do actors match characters the way you imagined them when you read the book?
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, distiguising 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.
