Here’s the second full-length Ender’s Game trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Orson Scott Card famous and beloved sci-fi novel.
For folks that have read Card’s book, it remains to be seen what surprises, if any, director Gavin Hood has hidden in his back pocket. But the film boasts a solid cast in Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, Abagail Breslin, and Asa Butterfield as the title character. And it sure does look great; the space and battle effects look spectacular, and the quieter scenes shown in more natural setting also seem to benefit from great cinematography.
This Renegade Reporter is keeping his fingers crossed that we get a great movie in Ender’s Game come 11.13.13.

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.
