The final trailer for Ender’s Game was just revealed today, drawing importance (and mankind’s future) on young Ender’s (Asa Butterfield) shoulders. The film adaptation of the sci-fi epic is causing waves, both amongst fans of the novel and detractors of author Orson Scott Card’s personal political ponderings. Despite the controversy, however, the story can stand on its own, with this new trailer illustrating the action-heavy tone that is shaping the film.
Considering there are over a dozen novels within the Ender’s Game universe, the franchise is already prepped to be exploited and cashed in on… as long as this first film performs well. With an insanely loyal community of Ender’s Game, again in spite of Card’s bigotry, I’m predicting the film will make a good amount of money when it hits theaters November 1st.
