Ender's Game

Ender's Game

We have already looked at some great science-fiction projects heading our this autumn - Riddick and Gravity being ones to watch out for - but Ender's Game looks set to be hit as well.

Yes it seems that 2013 really does belong to science fiction as we have had a whole host of fantastic films lighting up the big screen.

Ender's Game sees Gavin Hood return to the director's chair as Orson Scott Card's much loved novel is set to be adapted for the big screen.

It has been quite some time since we have seen Hood in the director's chair as his last big screen outing came in the form of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Hood's writing skills are also on show with this movie as he has adapted the novel into a screenplay.

But what is so exciting about this movie is the cast list as there is a mix of young and up and coming talent alongside well established stars.

Asa Butterfield, who shot to fame in Martin Scorsese's Huge, will take on the role of Ender Wiggin and he is joined by Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld.

But some of the big names on the cast list include Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and Viola Davis.

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.

There is something really epic about the trailer and Ender's Games looks set to be one of the movies that is absolutley not to be missed this autumn.

Ender's Game is released 25th October.
