Two New Teasing Set Images From ENDER'S GAME

Two New Teasing Set Images From ENDER'S GAME

Some new pics from the currently shooting sci-fi flick give us our first look at Hugo's Asa Butterfield as Ender (kinda!), and his room back on Earth. Check em out..

Sumit's adaptation of the seminal sci-fi novel Ender's Game is currently filming, and producer Robert Orci has updated the official production blog with two new images, featuring a look at the monitor implant on Ender's neck, and his room back on Earth..

Though Ender’s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the I-Pad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to “see through his eyes” and know: HE’S THE ONE.

The more futuristic the world, the more invisible its technology. So why shouldn’t Ender’s room look just like any normal kid’s room? And not every future is a dark dystopia. The world that Ender lives in is a world worth saving. That’s why he is willing to leave his family to go into an orbiting Battle School and risk not seeing his sister, Valentine, again until they are both adults. That doesn’t mean this world doesn’t have rules. Ender’s parents had to get permission from the state to have a third child, and if Ender ever had any doubt if he was unwanted, his mother and father’s shock at having their son recruited to be a future leader and transferred to space makes it clear to him that they’ve always loved him. They know that when Ender leaves the safety of his home, they will not be able to protect him any longer. We will keep your room for you just as you left it, Ender…

Ender's Game hits theaters November 1st, 2013 and stars Asa Butterfield, Brendan Meyer, Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Aramis Knight, Moises Arias, Jimmy Pinchak. The film is directed by Gavin Hood.

Yes...This series was my adolescence. It'll be interesting to see how Ender's world is fleshed out in a visual way, see if how I imagined everything matches up.

Especially the Battle Room.

Great find! ><

Definitely, Ender's Game was a top pick read for me when I was younger and I'm hoping my son will enjoy it as much if he ever reads it.

My body was left drained when I finally closed the cover to this book.

I hope the movie somehow captures that same feeling when the credits roll.

@Grif - Definitely NOT a shit series. Everything from the Battle Room, to the xenophobia, to the politcal intrigue...without a doubt a must-read series!

^^ political. Damn edit button!

@Grif One of the best SciFi books ever. Once you get past the fact that the main cast is mostly children (in the first book), it's an amazing adult novel.
