Ender’s Game…

From Wikipedia:

From this Ender’s Game (1985) Book to this Ender’s Game (2013) Movie, it took a long 28  years to have this fully materialized. From a military science fiction novel by American author Orson Scott Card, it is set in Earth’s future.

The novel presents an imperilled mankind that has barely survived two conflicts with the Formics or “Buggers”, an insectoid alien species. In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders.

The world’s most talented children, including the novel’s protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room, where Ender’s tactical genius is revealed.

A film adaptation of the same name directed by Gavin Hood and starring Asa Butterfield as Ender with talented Academy Award winners including Hailee Steinfeld and Ben Kingsley and nominees Harrison Ford, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin is going to be shown on November 1, 2013. Card is co-producing the film.

Synopsis snippet:
Sometime in the near future, humanity began to explore the solar system and master interplanetary spaceflight. In doing so, they encountered an alien race known as the Formics, derogatorily dubbed “buggers” due to their insect-like appearance, scouting the system and establishing a forward base in the asteroid Eros. The Formics attacked the humans and the two races entered into two drawn-out wars. Despite political conflict on Earth between three ruling parties, the Hegemon, Polemarch, and Strategos, a peace was established and an International Fleet (IF) formed to combat the Formics. In preparation for the Formics’ inevitable return (dubbed the “third invasion”) the IF created the Battle School, a program designed to find children of the best and brightest tactical minds and to subject them to rigorous training so as to defeat the Formic threat once and for all.

Plot

After winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) returns home to District 12 along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Shortly after returning home, they must embark on a “Victory Tour” of the districts, leaving behind their close friends and family again. On the day of the Victory Tour, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) threatens Katniss’ best friend and pretend cousin, Gale Hawthorne. During the tour, Katniss senses that a rebellion is brewing in the districts, but the Capitol is still firmly in control as Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, known as a Quarter Quell, an event taken place every 25 years – a competition that could change Panem forever. In this Hunger Games, the tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors, making all the other Games look like child’s play. As Peeta and Katniss end up in the arena again (as the only victors of District 12 with the exception of Haymitch), this time surrounded by experienced and vicious killers, President Snow is determined to eliminate them and destroy the rays of hope and the sparks of rebellions brewing up in the Districts.

Well this movie I hope won’t disappoint… I know that there’s a lot of young adults who loved the books but I don’t have the time to read them so I rely on moving pictures instead… I got bored in the first one but I have seen the trailer of the second installment and from the looks of it it has built an excitement and momentum… so I guess the 2nd would be much more fun and entertaining especially with the actions scenes and all and won’t be bad… crossing my fingers…
