Entertainment Weekly has released the first official photo from the upcoming film Ender’s Game, based on the highly acclaimed novel by Orson Scott Card!

Plot Synopsis:

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 Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, 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.

    I had to read this book in my sophomore year and I loved it! It’s a really good book by itself even though it’s technically part of a series (which I found out after reading the book)

    This picture looks really interesting. The book was one of the very few books in school that I actually liked. I never read the sequels since I did not know about them, but now I plan to since the first was good. It is a good thing when a book is good enough to stand on its own without needing sequels so hopefully this movie will feel complete and not end on a cliffhanger just to get us to want to watch any subsequent films.
