I didn’t know sci-fi could be so good until I read Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” way, way, way back in the day. It’s still pretty damn good now, and I’m certainly glad director Gavin Hood managed to get a sizable budget to make the movie version. Can you imagine “Ender’s Game” as a low-budget, Syfy Channel movie or, God forbid, an Asylum movie? Brrrrrrrrr.
Check out the latest and final trailer for “Ender’s Game”. It’s pretty snazzy if you ask me.
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, all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin, 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.
Starring Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and Harrison Ford.
