We now have news, directly from Summit Entertainment, that the Ender’s Game trailer will hit the web on May 7th – that’s next Tuesday, exactly one week from today. The trailer was originally shown at CinemaCon (an exclusive industry event) but hasn’t yet been released to the public – so torturous, I just can’t wait! We also have word from the studio reps that EW.com will post the first look at Ben Kingsley as Mazor Rackham tomorrow (5/1)!
The film was based on the book by Orson Scott Card, directed and adapted by Gavin Hood, and stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, and Abigail Breslin. The sci-fi action and adventure film will hit theaters on November 1st, 2013.
Synopsis: The Earth was ravaged twice by the Buggers, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent their own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a quiet but brilliant boy, may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother and brought to battle school in orbit around earth. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise himself as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.
