(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
A new image has been released for Gavin Hood‘s Ender’s Game this week, an adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel of the same name.
From a script Hood has adapted himself, the film is set in the near future and follows a young strategist, Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), who is drafted by the International Fleet to hone his military skills and hopefully save the human race from an impending alien invasion by a race known as the Formics.
The new image provides the first look at Hailee Steinfeld, known for her lead in the Coen Brother’s western drama True Grit, who plays Petra Arkanian, the only girl in the Salamander Army who befriends Ender.
Also starring Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dallimore, Andrea Powell, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin, the film is set to be released on 25th October.
