From Movie Web: Many fans of Orson Scott Card’s seminal science fiction story have been waiting for this film for a very long time. It’s almost here. Movie Web has revealed the first poster for the film, Ender’s Game. The story: The Earth was ravaged twice by the Buggers, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent our own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a boy of six, might be the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and brought to battle school in deep space. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who despises himself as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.
I know Card’s story is an excellent one. I have a feeling the film adaptation will fulfill expectations. The film stars Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Moises Arias, Jimmy Pinchak and is directed by Gavin Hood. Ender’s Game will be released November 1, 2013.
