First clip from Ender’s Game featuring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield

With less than a month to go before Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game makes its long awaited jump to the big screen, Summit Entertainment has released the first clip from the sci-fi tale featuring Harrison Ford’s Colonel Graff offering Asa Butterfield’s Ender Wiggin command of his own army; check it out after the official synopsis…

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.

Ender’s Game is directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and also features Abigail Breslin (Zombieland), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Viola Davis (The Help). The film is set for release in the UK on October 25th and in North America on November 1st.
