Here is the new trailer for Ender’s Game based on the classic sci-fi work by Orson Scott Card. It fits into the mindset of every trailer this day and age of “the world is going to end and only one person can save it”. Yes, that is what Ender’s Game is about, but John A. Moviegoer is just going to see the trailer and say it looks like every other action movie in space.
The effects are nice and I am excited to see Hailee Steinfeld in her first movie since the amazing Coen Bros. adaptation of True Grit. I hope they can at least capture the essence of the book. If you are going in expecting an exact book translation you apparently have never watched any Hollywood movie based on a book…ever.
Ender’s Game releases on November 1st.
