ENDER'S GAME is less than a month away from hitting theaters and today we have our first look at a clip from the film, which has Harrison Ford's Colonel Graff offering up an army to Asa Butterfield's Ender Wiggin. It's a pretty good set-up of what leads the film, which is Ender becoming a battlefield leader and is a good segue into the world of the film for those uninitiated to the source novel by Orson Scott Card.

He has an army:

Here's the lengthy snyopsis:

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.

I'm optimistic about ENDER'S GAME. Director Gavin Hood has taken a lot of shit for his X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, but this looks much sharper in the effects department and his passion while speaking at Comic Con this year kind of won me over. He has a strong respect for the fanbase and with the nice assembly of actors in the film it seems he put forth a tremendous effort to make a great film and one that would honor the source novel. Could ENDER'S GAME be a surprise hit or a sci-fi dud? I'm hoping for the former.

ENDER'S GAME invades theaters on November 1, 2013.

"...cause we already have the uniforms" immediately makes this the most realistic portrayal of the military ever filmed.

I wonder

if there's going to be any incest in this movie. HAHA j/k, we all know Card saved the majority of the incest for the sequel, "Speaker for the Dead". I tried to read Speaker for the Dead and couldn't even finish it. Card is really perverted and I don't know how his books ever got so popular. Only reason I'm going neutral is because Ender's Game wasn't horrible but his relationship with his sister was still overkill.

Uhh...I hate to break this to you Stryfe, but the version of "Speaker for the Dead" you read on fanfiction.net wasn't the real one

WTF are you talking about. I just finished TRYING to read this book. The two xenobiologists are siblings and they make out sensually. Even after finding it out the guy still wants to run away and fuck his sister. Ender wants a relationship with his sister like theirs.
On another note, when you rub the aliens bellies the nipples get erect and liquid showed up on their stomache out of nowhere! Or how about Ender visiting Novinha's family; the whole chapter consists of 5-10 different

Or how about Ender visiting Novinha's family; the whole chapter consists of 5-10 different people crying and having emotional breakdowns. Card sucks dick and you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Go read the book before you say I'm wrong.

I've read the book, StryfeDeath. You're wrong.

Oh, and your "Card sucks dick" comment was not only a lovely display of homophobia but a wonderful example of irony. Have a nice day and enjoy getting your foot out of your mouth.

I wonder how well they handle the many zero g training sequences from the book since Gravity just set a new and very, very high standard for those. The book is very good source material for a movie. It is sharply written, well structured and full of interesting ideas that could turn into great visuals given the right director. I am keeping my fingers crossed but I am not convinced yet. So I don't dare to put too high hopes in this.

Oh and I hope the producers get Orson Scott Card to keep his

I think the overall reception to this will be lukewarm to negative, but I'm looking forward to it because Harrison Ford's my absolute favourite actor and after True Grit I really wanted to see Hailee Steinfeld in more movies.
