The has been quite a fair amount of hype surrounding the big screen adaptation of the Orson Scott Card novel Ender’s Game, which is set to be released next year. We already know a fair amount about the movie because of the source material but now, the official movie synopsis has been released and states:
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.
Ender’s Game boasts an all-star cast, which includes the likes of Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Sir Ben Kingsley and Abigail Breslin, to name just a few. The film is directed by Gavin Hood and is expected to be released on October 25, 2013 in the UK and November 1, 2013 in the US.
