Check out a new clip for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” director Gavin Hood’s “Ender’s Game”, which features Harrison Ford talking about the sacrifices of one Mazer Rackham. That looks like some pretty badass footage right there. It’s been ages since I’ve read Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game,” so it looks like I might just have to Kindle this thing and re-read it again soon, cause I don’t remember that scene in the book at all.
The studio has also released 6 poster banners for the movie, all of which you can peruse below if you have the time. It’s completely up to you, though.
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.
