First official still for Enders Game

The first official still from forthcoming sci-fi adaptation Ender’s Game has emerged online, featuring a stern-looking Harrison Ford glowering at Asa Butterfield.

The film is an adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s 1985 novel of the same name, and is set on a future Earth torn apart by a pair of warring alien races. And as if that wasn’t enough, a third set of invaders are looming on the horizon.

Determined to make a stand against these alien aggressors, an international military fleet establishes a school to train the world’s most talented children in the skills of command necessary to lead the fightback.

Butterfield stars as Ender Wiggin, a tactical genius whose promotion to active duty is accelerated by Earth’s increasing need for salvation. Ford plays Colonel Hyrym Graff, one of the military officials to recognise Ender’s potential and thrust him into the spotlight.

Directed by Gavin Hood and co-starring Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld, Ender’s Game opens in the UK on 25 October 2013.
