The next teen movie franchise not named The Hunger Games is right around the corner in the form of the bestselling young adult science fiction franchise Ender’s Game.
Starring Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin, the film is about post apocalyptic war with aliens in which a teenager, who is basically a child genius, is tasked with saving the human race. Directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), who has a reputation of fucking up source material, it would appear from the trailer that Hood may have gotten his shit together. If you’ve read Ender’s Game you know how awesome a film adaptation could be.
The film also stars Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and Haliee Stenfield. It’s out on November 1, 2013.
