The trailer for Ender's Game brings a new kind of soldier for a new kind of war
ENDER'S GAME has been on my list of books to read for a very long time. When I heard the movie was coming out, I decided to throw it on the backburner and wait to see how the movie looks. Now, I really want to go back and pick up the books and start churning through the series.
This first trailer for ENDER'S GAME plays as a lot more serious in tone than I was anticipating, featuring scowling Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley. It looks pretty damn impressive, effects wise, and plays like a younger version of STARSHIP TROOPERS. I like that the technology is futuristic but not clean. It truly looks like a military setting. I have been hearing from fans of the book that this trailer does show a lot more than it should, but you be the judge. For those of us who have no idea what to expect, this looks fresh and a lot of fun.
Check out the trailer below.
After an alien race called the Formics attacks Earth, the International Fleet prepare for the next invasion by training the best young children to find the future leader to lead the International Military. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is pulled out of his school to join International Fleet and attend the legendary Battle School. After easily mastering the increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect among his peers, Ender is soon ordained by Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley) himself to lead the military into a war that will determine the future of Earth and the human race.
