There’s just over a month to go until director Gavin Hood‘s Ender’s Game hits the big screen on November 1st and the marketing should be picking up steam in the next couple of weeks. This first television spot focuses more on an overview of the film rather than any particular part or character.
*Insert spoiler warning here
For those of unfamiliar with the book, you might want to stop here. This TV spot does pretty much spell out one of the big surprises from the book, but the word is that the film’s perspective let’s that cat out of the bag very early in the movie.
Take a look at the spot and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
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 Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, 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.
