Final Poster for Gavin Hood's 'Ender's Game' Adaptation Gets Serious
This is not a game. No sir. This ain't just a story about kids/for kids. Time to get serious. Summit unveiled the "final" poster for Gavin Hood's Ender's Game adaptation, starring Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin, a young soldier recruited to the International Fleet to train as a commander. We've seen at least one trailer so far and one teaser poster, along with plenty of marketing at Comic-Con. Now they're starting the final push for the movie, which hits theaters in November this year, and that includes revealing this poster. No floating heads (only heads in boxes) just Ender in his battle suit geared up and ready to kick some ass.
Here's the "final" poster art for Gavin Hood's Ender's Game movie, as debuted in high res via IGN:
70 years after a horrific alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion. 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 and Roberto Orci of K/O Paper Products. Asa Butterfield stars as Ender Wiggin, with Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff, plus Nonso Anozie, Moises Arias, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis. Summit/Lionsgate will be releasing Ender's Game in theaters November 1st later this year.

Makes a lot of sense if you have read the book.

Ender's Game is my favorite sci-fi book but he's right that does seem kind of stupid, almost like a parody lol.

It fits but I see your point, "It's Not Just a Game" would have been better.

I've read the book, but it is still confusing.

Seriously bad. I expect this film to be as bad as Gavin Hood's Wolverine.

I'm glad this movie finally got made, and Im excited to see it, but the trailers make it look a bit bland, to me. I'm hoping they've managed to put together a great movie despite what the trailers look like.

I have low hopes for this, between the directors credentials, Fords very uninspired marketing and just the overall vibe I got from the trailer, this movie screams mediocre.

A little weird they gave Gavin "X-Men Origins" Hood the reins to a project with so much potential... hopefully XMO: Wolverine was just a blip..? Albeit a fairly large and bad one :/ - then again they only have themselves to blame if it turns out as mediocre as it seems. Would be a real waste considering the source material...

I'm keeping expectations low for that very reason. I also think critics who hate the author will be purposely looking for imperfections, so I'm not anticipating a critical hit.
