Summit has released two new propaganda-style posters for Gavin Hood‘s “Ender’s Game” that asks the viewer to choose between humanity versus an alien domination.
Just the latest in a string of upcoming young adult novel adaptations, “Ender’s Game” has the potential to follow in the footsteps of successful franchises such as “The Hunger Games” and “Harry Potter.” Although it has received negative buzz over its author’s anti-LGBT activism, the film’s premise combined with its stellar cast – which includes Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigial Breslin, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis and Harrison Ford – should prove something of a draw.
Based on the 1985 science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card, “Ender’s Game” takes place in a futuristic setting where an alien race known as the Formics have threatened the earth. Humanity’s only hope for survival is surprisingly in the form of child soldiers. Among the youth training in Battle School is Ender Wiggin (Butterfield), a shy boy who steps up to every physical and mental challenge to win the trust of Colonel Hyrum Graff (Ford). Ender is promoted to join Command School where he is mentored by the legendary Commander Mazer Rackham (Kingsley) to prepare for the next invasion.
Will “Ender’s Game” draw in enough audiences and critical acclaim to warrant a sequel? Or will it underwhelm like the recent attempts with “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” and “The Host”? We’ll soon find out since it arrives in theaters on November 1.
