A big screen version of Orson Scott Card‘s epic sci-fi novel Ender’s Game has sort of been a bit of a white whale for Hollywood. Decades in on again off again development has had fans wondering if it will ever really happen. Short answer, yes and it looks really expensive. Below is the first teaser trailer for the flick and it just seems to be an endless stream of CGI money shots and Harrison Ford, two things that don’t come cheap. Check it 0ut.
Directed by Gavin Hood with producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and others. Stars Asa Butterfield (Hugo) as the titular character and Harrison Ford plays his gruff mentor. Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin fill out the cast. Expect it in theaters (with very long lines) November 1st.
