While “Gravity” is racing into theaters today promising no shortage of sci-fi thrills, genre fans need not worry that it will be their only serving this fall. Next month, “Ender’s Game” arrives with another sort of spectacle, though we’re pretty sure you won’t get a heart attack watching it.
Based on the book by Orson Scott Card, who has not helped promotional matters with his rather bigoted views on pretty much everything, the film stars Asa Butterfield as Ender, a kid recruited to the elite Battle School, where he becomes the hope to save the human race. Talk about homework. And while there he’ll hang around folks like Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Viola Davis and Ben Kingsley and stuff will explode in IMAX in your face.
Below, you can check out some new images, a poster and some fancy pants 360 virtual tours of the battle sets. “Ender’s Game” begins on November 1st.
