Lionsgate has released the first official image from their adaptation of Ender’s Game. The following image involves Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) getting confronted by Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) about sending secret emails to his sister Valentine (Abigail Breslin). It’s not really much to go by but this image looks like The Hunger Games mixed with Full Metal Jacket in outer space. Check out the image below…
The photo is courtesy of EW. Ender’s Game is the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s science fiction space opera series. The story takes place in the future when man is at war with aliens called Formics or “Buggers.” The best and brightest children are recruited to a battle school in space where they train to be generals of the human offensive. The character of Ender Wiggin is the smartest of the new recruits, which makes him a prime target to be their leader.
Producer Roberto Orci has periodically released a few cryptic set photos of working sets and costumes from Ender’s Game on the film’s official Tumblr. account. Ender doesn’t come out for another year but it’s interesting that Lionsgate decided to move its release date from February to November 2013. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which will also be released by Lionsgate, is due in theaters on November 22nd 2013. This means the movie studio will have the beginning and end of the month to get audiences into theaters.
Ender’s Game will be released on November 1st 2013 in IMAX.
