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 will hit theaters on November 1, 2013.

Looking forward to the movie. As I said, I liked the book, but didn't love it.

I might watch this except the author is such a piece of crap that I'd hate for him to make any money off me.

We'll see it, I'm sure. I think all the "controversy" is totally ridiculous.

I'm hoping it's her last one David, because that would be phenomenal.

I hope the movie is more interesting than the book. I mean most of it, he was training. The trailer looked good though when I went to see Gravity last week. Maybe it will be good. Shrug.


He is so far.
I honestly didn't think of it that way. I'll have to ask her.
