First Look Photo: Ender and Petra at Battle School in 'Ender's Game'
Meet the Salamander Army. Yes! We're finally getting some glimpses at the Ender's Game movie, written & directed by Gavin Hood, due out in theaters this November. Ender's Game fan site Ender News has just debuted a new photo today to tease their set visit from last year (we were there, too). We've already seen one look at Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin talking with Col. Graff, now we get to see Ender at Battle School talking with another friend of his, Petra, played by Hailee Steinfeld. The full shot gives us a wider look at the entire Mess Hall and scoreboard, where they're eating with the Salamander Army. Looks perfect!
We have yet to see a trailer, but I've got a feeling one is coming soon. Click to see high res via Ender News:
70 years after an alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion. "The relationship between [Harrison] and Asa [Ender] was very close, but he didn't overly befriend him off the set. He helped Asa by allowing that slight sense of intimidation to be there," explains writer/director Gavin Hood. Ender's Game, based on Orson Scott Card's beloved 1985 novel of the same name, is written & directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition, X-Men Origins) produced by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci. It also co-stars Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis. Summit/Lionsgate will be releasing Ender's Game in theaters starting November 1st, 2013 late this year.
