Nothing gets audiences in the seats like a Harrison Ford glare. Decades after his steely look on the poster for Raiders of the Lost Ark, studios are still using the stern Ford face to sell their film. With the debut of the Ender’s Game character posters, it appears that Summit Entertainment is following a familiar strategy, and we’d be surprised if it didn’t put people in the seats!
Fresh off the release of the Ender’s Game propaganda posters, we get the character posters that feature Ford, as well as stars Asa Butterfield, Viola Davis, Ben Kingsley and Hailee Steinfeld.
As teased in the Ender’s Game trailer, the story follows a future where young kids are recruited into an army that is meant to ensure the safety of the world. Our hero this time out, is Butterfield (poster below).
Among the characters filling out our story is a potential love interest, Steinfeld.
Kingsley appears -- fresh off his scene-stealing role in Iron Man 3, as some sort of alien… is he good? Is he bad? You’ll have to wait and see!
One of the supporting players is Davis, a fellow Oscar nominee -- as is Ford and Kingsley (who has won).
Look for Ender’s Game when it debuts in theaters November 1.
