New Trailer for Enders Game

Enders-Game-PosterThe movie adaptation of sci-fi classic Enders Game has been dogged by controversy over author Orson Scott Card’s stance on homosexuality. It’s interesting that the press release accompanying the new trailer for the movie doesn’t mention him by name and seems to have been kept away from any of the movies promotion.

I guess they want the the film to be judged on it’s own merits, so in that spirit, the new trailer is below the cut.

 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 Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.

Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, 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 himself to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Based on the best-selling, award winning novel, ENDER’S GAME, the epic adventure, also starring Hailee Steinfeld and Viola Davis with Abigail Breslin is released in UK cinemas on 25th October.
