Icon Film Distribution gets set to send the epic film adaptation of best-selling sci-fi novel ENDER’S GAME in to orbit in Australian cinemas on December 5 2013.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel, ENDER’S GAME is an epic space adventure starring Hugo actor Asa Butterfield as a boy sent to fight a futuristic war. The highly anticipated film from X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Gavin Hood features an all star cast including Harrison Ford (INDIANA JONES), Ben Kingsley (Schindler’s List), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Viola Davis (The Help) and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine).
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) is a shy, strategically brilliant boy who has been chosen to leave home and join the elite Military. The International Military only recruit and train the very best young adults to defend Earth from the hostile alien race called the Formics. As Ender excels at Battle School, he attracts the attention of the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford), who believes Ender to be the military’s next great hope. Ender must lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and the human race.
The film reunites Butterfield with his Hugo co-star Ben Kingsley who plays Ender’s mentor, the heroic, half-Maori Commander Mazer Rackham, a living legend amongst the ranks of the Fleet after previously saving Planet Earth from total annihilation in an earlier alien invasion. Young star and fashion muse Hailee Steinfeld gives a gutsy performance as Ender’s Battle School companion, Petra Arkanian, whilst Abigail Breslin plays Ender’s older sister.
