You think you’re tough enough for Battle School? If the answer is Yes, then Harrison Ford would like to recruit you. Why? Well, there’s that whole saving the world form alien invasion thing, but whatever, maybe you’re too busy playing soccer or basketball or whatever it is kids play “in the near future”, whatever that happens to be.
Check out a new promo video featuring plenty of new footage from the Gavin Hood movie. Then head over here to see if you have what it takes, soldier!
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.
“Ender’s Game” is based on the best-selling, award winning novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card, and stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, with Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford.
Recruiting all kids this November 1st.
