Gavin Hood’s (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s science fiction classic, Ender’s Game, is still a long way off. We won’t lay eyes on the film until November 1, just in time to usher in end-of-the-year blockbuster season. But just because we’re months out, and have most of a summer’s worth of big movies to wade through, doesn’t mean it’s too soon to start the hype machine. In that spirit, take a look at this latest picture from Ender’s Game.
This photograph, which comes from the film’s Facebook page, has a definite Sears Portrait Studio vibe. Composition wise, stars Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield are posed much like a family portrait. They also look miserable, like most people having their pictures taken. Butterfield—who plays the titular Andrew “Ender” Wiggan, a young but strategically gifted military mind—has a vacant look on his face, staring off into the distance.
