Say what you will about author Orson Scott Card's political views, the novel Ender's Game is one of the seminal works of young adult science fiction. The story, about a boy so skilled in the "art of war" that he becomes a fleet commander, was ahead of its time in the '80s but is all the more poignant today, and it's the fact that the story centers around kids that makes it stand out from a lot of the sci-fi films out there. Needless to say, fans of the book have been waiting for a big screen adaptation for quite some time, and it's finally here.
However, with a relatively young cast, Ender's Game is betting big on the presence of seasoned veterans like Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley to draw in the adult crowds. Even if Ford and Kingsley can't get the job done, the film also looks to feature some pretty impressive visuals.
