Ender's Game, this fall's future-set space saga has unleashed its debut trailer.
After giving us a brief sneak peak glimpse last week, the film's first full proper trailer immediately answers what may be the most pressing question potentially vexing anyone who watched the clip: "Why are CHILDREN are fighting in space wars?" It seems that Harrison Ford's Colonel Graff is under the belief that the mysterious legion of alien enemies may be thrown off by the fact that Earth's soldiers have yet to sprout pubes. (I kid, I kid.) Actually, it is through the minds of these child soldiers that Graff sees the untapped creative potential to put these inflexible space invaders in their pusillanimous place. Consequently, he may have found his latter-day Luke Skywalker. (Even though this transaction won't yield 17,000 Imperial credits and a hot sister.) It seems that humanity's hopes may lie with Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a wary wunderkind with a brilliant mind who, according to Graff could be "the finest commando we've ever trained."
Under the scornful stares of a tribal-tatted trainer named Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), Ender will have to endure the rigorous regime, getting along with his peers, traipsing the perils of young romance, and mastering the fine art of "blowing up ships and planets with energy pulses." -- You know, typical boring stuff that you're never going to use in real life like memorizing the quadratic formula and learning not to mix acids and bases.
Ender's Game lets all adults sit at home and watch Law & Order marathons while their children fight space wars when it hits theaters November 1. Check out the trailer below!
