We have to wait until May 7th for the first full trailer for the long awaited Ender’s Game movie. But Summit Entertainment has released some teaser footage from the film giving us our first look to keep us interested. It’s not much but just enough for me to want to see more.
Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield introduce the video and announce that the first trailer will premiere during a Google+ hangout at 1:00 PM PT / 4:00 PM ET. The event will also feature a live conversation with director Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), producer Bob Orci(Star Trek Into Darkness), and star Asa Butterfield(Hugo).
“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 Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), 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.”
The movie also stars Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Moises Arias, KhylinRhambo, Viola Davis, and Nonso Anozie.
Ender’s Game hits theaters on November 1st, 2013.
