ENDER'S GAME Trailer Drops!

There's a reason why Ender's Game is considered to be one of the best young adult sic-fi books ever written. It's smart, action packed, and actually has fantastic character development. And after seeing the teaser trailer and now the full trailer for the film adaptation, you can definitely say the movie will be at least one of those three things.

In the future, Earth is attacked by aliens called buggers. The buggers almost destroyed everything. Now to fight back, the International Military is training children from a young age to find the right leader to destroy the buggers once and for all. Ender shows that promise, and the book tells his story of struggle of being isolated and the pressure put upon him. Whether that will be portrayed in the film...the trailers aren't looking too hopeful.

Check it out.

Don't get me wrong. The action scenes look fantastic, and I can't wait to see the zero gravity training room in action. However, there's so much focus on the adults. We don't need them to tell us how stressful this is for Ender or how much they're relying on him. Asa Butterfield is a phenomenal actor. Let him show us how Ender feels. Let's just hope the heart of the story isn't lost to popcorn action.

ENDER'S GAME will be released November 1, 2013, directed by Gavin Hood, and stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Violet Davis, and Abigail Breslin.
