If you haven’t been paying attention to the SciFi genre in the last year (or have been too distracted by the new Iron Man 3 and Star Trek films to care about anything else), I want to show you to something that you should be excited about for November: Ender’s Game!
Ender’s Game is a novel by Orson Scott Card that tells the story of a young boy chosen to command an army against alien invasion, and the trials he suffers by being an outcast in a futuristic society. This is likely the most generic synopsis I could give, but there is so much more to the story (I just don’t want to give any spoilers). One thing to keep in mind, the author has a reputation for being a bit of a prick…but don’t let that distract you from enjoying the novel.
When I heard that Hollywood had FINALLY gotten its stuff together and was making an Ender’s Game movie, I was thrilled! I was even MORE excited when I heard it features: Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, and Asa Butterfield. In the words of fangirls (& fanboys) everywhere: “SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”
The full trailer won’t be out until May 7th, but a quick little preview of the trailer (so a trailer of a trailer?) has been released. Watch and be intrigued!
