Anticipation couldn’t be higher for director Gavin Hood’s film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 novel, ENDER’S GAME. A few weeks ago we saw the first look image of Col. Graff (Harrison Ford) staring down a fresh-faced Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), and now (thanks to EnderNews) today we are getting another glimpse at the film this time in the Mess Hall at Battle School. And our titular hero seems to be having an intense conversation with pal Petra (Hailee Steinfeld).
Not only are we getting a first look at the Mess Hall at Battle School, but we are also getting a peek at the Battle School Army Logos. They represent the Rat Army, Asp Army, Salamander Army and Dragon Army. Take a look.
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.
