You've seen the trailer, you may have read Orson Scott Card's novel. Now check out a fresh batch of new Ender's Game posters, showcasing the movie's cadre of wee warriors and their mentor, Ben Kingsley. jPosters (via Collider) has the full consignment, but click below for a closer look at our hero, Ender Wiggin (Hugo's Asa Butterfield), his closest pal Petra Arkanian (Hailee Steinfeld), and wizened instructor Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley).

Wiggin, a shy but brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite International Fleet in the wake of an invasion by the Formics, a warmongering breed of space bastards. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, distinguishing himself and winning respect and resentment amongst his peers. He is soon ordained by cranky Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School.

Once there, he’s trained by the great Mazer Rackham (Kingsley) to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race (as per these mock-recruitment posters from earlier in the year).

Design is a key ingredient in bringing Card's "unfilmable" sci-fi to the screen, and a new spin on battle-ready space tech should be expected. "It’s called a flash suit," explained Butterfield of his zero-G outfit whenEmpire tracked him down to the film's set. "It looks incredible, but wearing it was pretty uncomfortable, because they were tight and thick and didn’t give you all that much movement. It’s like wearing three wetsuits and then putting on body armour over that. We had a few versions: a normal one, and then a slightly bigger one which let you wear a harness underneath. You wouldn’t want to wear one for more than an hour."

Ender's Game is out in the UK on October 25.
