Ender's Game Trailer Header

Nearly 20 years after Orson Scott Card‘s novel was first published, an adaptation of Ender’s Game is finally hitting the big screen. For a long time, Card had believed that the book was “unfilmable” not because of the amount of violence depicted, but because it all took place in Ender’s head. But the film’s first trailer has appeared online, and so far, it looks like it’s not living up to Card’s statements.

Whether or not this trailer will please or anger fans certainly remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Ender’s Game looks like it will please a new generation of sci-fi fans. Hit the jump to see the new trailer.

Ender's Game Header

The first trailer for Gavin Hood‘s large-scale adaptation of the classic Orson Scott Card sci-fi novel Ender’s Game is set to premiere early this week, but in the meantime, stars Harrison Ford (Colonel Hyrum Graff) and Asa Butterfield (Ender Wiggin) are here to tease some footage from the upcoming trailer.

You can watch the footage with the Ford/Butterfield intro here below.

The full trailer will debut on Tuesday, May 7 at 1:00 PM PT/4:00 PM ET during a Google Plus Hangout in which director Hood, star Butterfield, and producer Roberto Orci will be on hand to discuss the movie. You can tune into the Hangout at YouTube.com/EndersGameMovie and Google.com/+EndersGame and submit questions for the trio to answer during the discussion. I wouldn’t count on Card’s long-held stance on same sex marriage to be addressed though.

If there is one thing you can count on avid fans of novels to do is to immediately jump on any and all mistakes or inaccuracies a director makes for a film adaptation. So just imagine what fans will do if Gavin Hood doesn’t get the look of the Battle Room right in Ender’s Game. Well a new poster gives us a slight tease of what it could look like.

For those that don’t know, the Battle Room is where zero gravity war games are held and cadets are trained to become commanding officers. Asa Butterfield will play the child prodigy Ender who has the skills necessary to be the best commanding officer in the field. He’ll be joined by Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, and Viola Davis. Check out the newest poster for Ender’s Game here below.

Ender's Game Mess Hall

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).

Ender's Game

Orson Scott Card‘s classic 1985 sci-fi adventure novel Ender’s Game has been targeted for the celluloid treatment for several years, at one point with Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot) in the director’s chair. Last year, Summit Entertainment finally got an Ender’s movie into production with Gavin Hood (Tsotsi) directing and writing the screenplay adaptation.

The project has attracted a cast of acting heavyweights and up-and-coming young stars with 15-year-old British actor Asa Butterfield (Hugo) in the title role of a brilliant child who joins a program designed to produce military officers out of bright children for a war Earth is waging with an alien known as the Formics, or “buggers.” Joining Butterfield are Abigail Breslin (Zombieland), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Ben Kingsley (Sexy Beast), recent Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help), and Harrison Ford – no stranger to fighting in interstellar wars on screen.

X-Men

Back in June, Bryan Singer did an interview where he was asked about the X-Men franchise and whether he would ever return (Read: Is Bryan Singer Itching To Do More ‘X-Men’ Adventures?). He revealed that the four hours that it takes us to watch X-Men and X2: X-Men United took six years of his life, and so he is “eternally intertwined” with the franchise and would love to return.

While at the Pusan International Film Festival recently, Singer once again spoke about the possibility of retaking the helm for X-Men 4. He confirmed the previous interview statement that he would like to get back into that universe, and that he has actually been talking to 20th Century Fox about this return. Singer spoke about how he loves Hugh Jackman and the rest of the cast, and especially how much he loves the ability to tackle real-world issues through the fun of science fiction and fantasy movies such as the X-Men films.
