‘Ender’s Game’ trailer features Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield in Orson Scott Card adaptation

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for director Gavin Hood’s adaptation of the Orson Scott Card novel Ender’s Game on Thursday.

The film tells the story of Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a young boy sent away to Battle School to hone his military skills and, hopefully, save the world from an impending alien invasion.

A “teaser trailer announcement” featuring star Butterfield and co-star Harrison Ford was released last week, and it provides the first footage from the film. It does seem noteworthy that Ford sounds really bored even though his narration is about trying to save humanity from annihilation.

The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Khylin Rhambo, Moises Arias, and Ben Kingsley.

Ender’s Game opens on November 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Ender’s Game:

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.
