Ender's Game Trailer Gets Online Release (Video)

The upcoming sci-fi action release Ender's Game is a post-apocalyptic vision of a future Earth ravaged by alien warfare and a gifted child who is able to forewarn the remaining humans of an impending re-invasion, and today (May 7) we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming epic. The trailer was uploaded to production house Summit Entertainment's YouTube page just hours ago and promises everything you could want from a sci-fi romp.

The film stars Harrison Ford (promise of everything you could want fulfilled) and Ben Kingsley in the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel of the same name. Like the book, the film is set in Earth's future, where the few remaining humans left over from two separate wars with a insect-like alien species known as 'Buggers.' These war-ravaged humans must prepare themselves for impending future warfare with the help of the story's main character. This is a gifted child named Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) who sent to an advanced military school where his fantastic intellect is revealed and used to the human's much needed advantage.

Card will be co-producing the film along with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, with Tsotsi and X Men Origins: Wolverine director Gavin Hood attached to direct. Hood also worked on the screenplay for the film, working at times with Card to oversee the progress.

The book is part of a series, so providing the movie does well we may have a potential franchise on our hands. Judging from the trailer, things look relatively promising for the movie to be a success and if it matches the same praise the books have generally received then sequels could be imminent. The film is due out November 10 2013.
