Ender’s Game Trailer: You Were Bred for This

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Ender’s Game trailer has premiered and we must say, for a story so complex and thrilling, Summit Entertainment could not have crafted a better way to introduce the world to their film. All you need to know about this film, based on the book by Orson Scott Card, is stated in a voice-over by the film’s star -- Harrison Ford.

The first full-length trailer has arrived and finally we have much more to go on than the Ender’s Game character posters and that all-too-short Ender’s Game teaser.

Ford is Colonel Hyrum Graff, and in his opening trailer narration he is talking to Ender, a boy played by Asa Butterfield. He tells him that when aliens invaded, they almost destroyed us and that “they will be back.” In the fight to stay alive, Ford and his intergalactic fighter pilot training program have recruited youngsters, like Ender, and they appear to have found the one who could turn the tide of the war in the young man.

Graff states that Ender was “bred for this. You see things in a way we can’t. You alone can understand the enemy. You will be the one to save mankind.”

Well, no pressure… like at all!

Ender’s Game lands in theaters in November and also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Oscar winner Ben Kingsley (most recently seen in Iron Man 3).

All told, this is one impressive trailer.
