Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.05.12] scifi action thriller adventure dystopic

Obvious love for Orson Scott Card's oddball YA novel here. The book, thought unfilmable by some naysayers, will come to the screen by way of Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) fall 2013, but the first image has appeared from the film today.

In the image we see Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff giving some tough love to wiz-kid Andrew "Ender" Wiggin (Asa Butterfield, the kid from Hugo) on what is probably his first day of Battle School.

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.

Besides Ford, the film stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin.

Ender's Game opens November 1, 2013.

Here's hoping this means trailerage in a few months.
