Summit Entertainment has teased Ender’s Game fans with a few production photos and official stills in the past and with the film just a little under a year away from release, the marketing team is continuing to slowly churn out more promotional goodies.
The Gavin Hood-directed film is based on the Orson Scott Card novel of the same name where young children are recruited into the military and are trained to fight against an insectoid race called buggers.
Check out the new images from the film below.
Asa Butterfield plays the titular character, Ender, who also happens to be a brilliant strategist. After being pulled out of school to join the elite, Ender quickly adapts to the increasingly difficult war games and not only gains the respect of his peers, but also the attention of the great Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley).
These new images aren’t spoilerish per se, but they do give some insight into the Battle School dynamics. For instance, in the mess hall image we clearly see that there are battle scores displayed for everyone to see. The second image is that of the battle school emblems. We see that Butterfield and co-star Hailee Steinfeld belong to the Salamander school. The other schools are Rat, Asp, and Dragon.
Ender’s Game also stars Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, and Viola Davis.
