As promised, it’s here! After months of making fans wait, and producing a teaser for the trailer itself, the studio that is adapting Orson Scott Card’s seminal novel has finally released the first full-length trailer. In this minute and a half preview, we get a look at Ender (played by Asa Butterfield), Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford), Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), as well an inside look at the Battle School, and an eyeful of action sequences.
Having read this book many years back and seeing what the big deal was, I’m pretty stoked about it making it to the big screen. I expect a faithful adaptation that will be awesome to behold, but I don’t want to jinx it. So don’t quote me on that. Official release date is November 1st, 2013, so we got a bit of a wait ahead. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer!

Not bad! They’ve added a couple of characters, which is cool by me. I doubt it will be a direct adaptation, but as long as they keep all the important bits, and the feel of the overall story, I think it will be really awesome. Although I suspect they’re going to cut out some of the naked scenes, lol.
Looks pretty good. Not sure if I’ll see it though; depends on what I think when I read it in the fall.
