Here’s the first clip and a stack of character banners from Summit Entertainment’s Ender’s Game, starring Ben Kingsley, as well as Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, and Hailee Steinfeld. They’ll be on display at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con.
“70 years after a horrific alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion.”
Ender’s Game, directed by Gavin Hood, opens theatrically on November 1st.
Here’s a lengthy synopsis: “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.”
