(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
The first image has been released from Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game on the film’s Tumblr page this week but, more of a tease, all we have been treated to is the image of a boys neck that has a some form of implant attached.
For those who have read Orson Scott Card’s best-selling novel of the same name that the film is adapted from, you may know what this means. For the rest of us, the science-fiction implication means that we can look forward to a different take on an imperilled society in a tech-heavy future.
From a script Hood has adapted himself, the film follows a young strategist, Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), who is drafted by the International Fleet to save the human race.
Also starring Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dallimore, Andrea Powell, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, and Abigail Breslin, the film is set to be released on 29th March, 2013.
