Check out the first poster for Ender's Game, starring Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, and Ben Kingsley
Aside from a few images, we haven't seen a whole lot from ENDER'S GAME, the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi novel starring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, and Viola Davis. Still, that hasn't stopped it from being an interesting project to watch. Today, the studio has released the first poster for the film, which shows off the titular character in the "battle room" where he conducts his military training to combat invading aliens.
As someone who isn't familiar with the novel, I think this looks interesting. I can't say I'm chomping at the bit for it, but with a large fanbase and solid reputation in the sci-fi community, it has potential to be a great entry in the genre. A trailer will be more telling, but so far it's looking good.
Take a look:
Here's the synopsis:
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, Enderquickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soonordained 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.
