The First Trailer for Ender’s Game Looks Surprisingly Awesome!

I’ll admit that I’ve been a bit skeptical of the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster, “Ender’s Game,” but not anymore.

Today the first full-length trailer for the space epic hit, and I must say that it is pretty amazing.

Take special note of the cool space-technology, zero-g fight scenes and awesome special effects. Learn more about the novel after the video.

Here’s the synopsis:

Based on the 1980’s novel of the same name, “Ender’s Game” is set in Earth’s future,where humans are in conflict with the “Buggers”, an insect-like alien species. In preparation for an anticipated invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. The world’s most talented children, including Ender Wiggin. The kids are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School, hovering in Earth’s orbit.

The novel has long been one of the most popular young adult books of all-time, and if you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend it. As a matter of fact, you could read and write about “Ender’s Game” for the 2013 BL reading contest. Click here for more info on the contest and win some cool prizes.

The movie doesn’t hit theaters until November, so if the mood strikes you, there’s plenty of time to finish the book.

What do you think of the movie?
