So, get to seein’ it already. Yes, it’s another preview teaser for the teaser trailer. Welcome to the brave new world of Hollywood movie marketing, folks.
“Ender’s Game”, of course, is the hotly anticipated movie based on Orson Scott Card’s classic book. It’ll be interest to see how much interest it gets from the general public. I know fans of the book (myself included) will be there on opening day, but what of Joe Blow America who would rather watch shitty reality TV shows than, you know, read?
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 children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin, 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.
“Ender’s Game” also stars Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Andrea Powell, Moises Arias, Jimmy Pinchak, and Aramis Knight.
