“Ender’s Game” won’t hit theaters until Nov. 1, but Summit Entertainment has just released new imagery from the movie.
On Wednesday, Summit sent out a new round of images: A new still from the film features Asa Butterfield, who plays the film’s shy but brilliant hero Ender Wiggin, dressed in the gray uniform of the Battle School. He appears to be chatting cheerfully with his peers in the mess hall while a high-tech glowing scoreboard hovers over the scene.
The company also sent the four army logos from the Battle School — Dragon, Salamander, Rat and Asp. (Click through the gallery to see those.)
This is not the first still from “Ender’s Game” that Summit has released. An image of Harrison Ford, who plays Col. Hyrum Graff , addressing Butterfield in a futuristic barracks has already been floating around the Internet.
The book came out in 1985, so it took 28 years for this story of a child war genius to come to the big screen. The film is written and directed by Gavin Hood, who directed “Tsotsi” (an Oscar winner for foreign-language film) and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
“Ender’s Game” is the tale of a young boy plucked from his life to join an elite group of children training to fight alien attackers.
The film features actors Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld and Ben Kingsley, in addition to Ford and Butterfield.
