First clip from Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game

Lionsgate has released the first clip from Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game. Titled “Ender’s Army” this features a talk between Harrison Ford’s Colonel Hyrum Graff  talking to young Ender.

The film is an adaptation of the best-selling Orson Scott Card novel of the same name and follows an unusually gifted child who is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Hood has assembled a top cast for this with Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin all featuring.

Ender’s Game is out in Ireland October 25th.

In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
