Harrison Ford Drills Asa Butterfield In Our First Look At Ender’s Game

Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi war movie Ender’s Game is finally on its way to the big screen. Its story of youths being drilled and sent to fight is certainly topical – once again. It’s also pretty friendly to the YA audience who embraced The Hunger Games, as well as seasoned sci-fi buffs.

This first image from the film, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, eschews big sci-fi tropes for something pretty well grounded, if shiny. Here you see some young recruits of Earth’s war against the Formics – a species of insectoid aliens – and Harrison Ford as gruff Colonel Graff, apparently giving young Ender a dressing down.

I’m sure Ford can instruct drills with the best of them, it’s Asa Butterfield as Ender I’m not so sure about.

You might want to read the original EW piece for such brilliant insights as:

The actors tried to mirror their characters’ emotions.

Actually, to be fair, it was interesting to learn that the film compresses the action of the original novel into a single year so they didn’t have to have replacement actors showing the kids growing up. That’s a significant alteration, in some real respects.
