There hasn’t been much marketing or publicity for director Gavin Hood‘s adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s Ender’s Game. The “Official Production Blog” hasn’t had a new post since June 18th when principle filming completed. There’s no Facebook page, movie website, or even a poster yet. Don’t worry though, there’s still just under a year to go before the November 1st 2013 release date so I’m sure we’ll get plenty more soon. Until then, we’ll have to settle for enjoying the little things, like this still of Harrison Ford as:
Col. Hyrum Graff.
A colonel in the International Fleet and the commandant of the Battle School, Hyrum Graff pushes Ender to his limits. Graff seems cruel and overly demanding, stacking the odds against Ender at every opportunity and even putting the life of humanity’s greatest hope in danger, but he only seeks to prepare Ender for the unique situations he will have to face in the future war with the buggers.

Ender’s Game synopsis:
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.
