It’s one of the most anticipated movies of the year and this Tuesday its director will host a Live Google+ Hangout to promote it. Ender’s Game, based on the book by Orson Scott Card, is the story of a young man enlisted to help Earth fight off an alien invasion. The film stars relative newcomer Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley and is set for release on November 1, 2013. A preview for the film just went online:
Back in Space
The trailer doesn’t show much but it certainly gets us excited (maybe because it’s the first time since Star Wars Harrison Ford has returned to space?). The book is a significant piece of science fiction; it’s even on the U.S. Marine Corps’ recommended reading list for new cadets for its “lessons in training methodology, leadership and ethics.”
Join director Gavin Hood, producer Bob Orci and star Asa Butterfield at 1 pm PT (4 pm ET) on May 7th to get the rundown. And in the meantime, check out the official Ender’s Game website.
A movie like Ender’s Game blends technology, space and special effects in a unique way. From the Battle Room simulations to the shots of ships in space, it takes a team of artists with years of experience to realize the director’s vision.
