We haven’t seen much of Lionsgate’s upcoming “Ender’s Game,” based on the first in a series of books by Orson Scott Card, and a newly released image won’t do much to excite you about the film’s many inevitable action scenes.
The film takes place primarily at a futuristic Battle School where advanced children take part in zero-G war games and undergo political indoctrination in order to prepare for a menacing alien invasion.
The new image, first spotted on fan site Enderwiggin.net, features Asa Butterfield (“Hugo”) as Ender and “True Grit” Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, the only female member of Ender’s Salamander Army. They take some time off between battles to sit down for a hearty meal.
Take a look here:
Fans may be able to pick out other cadets Dink Meeker (Khylin Rhambo) and Bonzo Madrid (Moises Arias) in the pic’s background.
Gavin Hood (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) directed the film, which also stars Ben Kingsley (who also starred in “Hugo”), Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and Harrison Ford.
“Ender’s Game” will be released November 1.
