Sci-fi nerds, unite! Orson Scott Card’s classic 1985 novel is heading to the silver screen this fall, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s the ultimate dystopian tale: a war-torn Earth trains its most gifted children for life on the battlefield, fighting the destructive alien “buggers.” That’s where Ender comes in. The scrawny but brilliant child is sent to the Battle School, where he spends his days studying to be a commander – or so he thinks. The film boasts a stellar cast including Sir Ben Kingsley (“Schindler’s List”), Harrison Ford (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”) and Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”), with the titular character played by Asa Butterfield (“Hugo”). These actors have big shoes to fill when it comes to fulfilling the imaginations of millions of readers – but if their past work is any indication, they’re up to the challenge. Aliens, war, CGI explosions: what else could we ask for? The simultaneously disheartening and hopeful story is sure to impress when it rolls into theaters on Nov. 1.
