Having had some success adapting books into such mega-franchises as Twilight and The Hunger Games, Team Summit/Lionsgate (and, this time) Odd Lot Entertainment is banking on Ender’s Game to deliver on the sci-fi front. The first trailer for the movie is now online.
Taken from Orson Scott Card’s novel, Ender’s Game is set in a future where Earth has come under attack from an insectoid race known as the Formics (or, colloquially, "Buggers").
It’s tough to tell how well writer/director Gavin Hood and his team have tackled the complicated story from this first trailer, but it certainly seems evocative in its portrayal of the battle simulations.
With Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Moises Arias also in the cast, Ender’s Game is out on October 25.
