Lionsgate has released a new TV spot and a groovy new UK quad poster for Gavin Hood’s upcoming sci-fi epic “Ender’s Game”, based on the classic book of the same name by Orson Scott Card. I’ve been meaning to re-read the book, but stuff keeps coming up. Hey, that dog ain’t gonna walk itself, you know.
Click on the poster above to enlarge, and watch the TV spot below. Or don’t. See if I care.
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.
“Ender’s Game” stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, with Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford.
