If you thought the reveal of the “Ender’s Game” Battle School army logos was cool, then wait until you see this. A new still from the movie has been released that finally shows us what Hailee Steinfeld looks like as the character Petra.
The image, courtesy of Ender News, shows Asa Butterfield’s Ender dining with Petra and the rest of the Salamander Army in the mess hall. In the background, the stats of the various teams can be seen, which is a very fun addition. Other Battle School students can be seen staring at the Salamander Army in the background.
This is about as exciting as the reveal of Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff. Now all we need is a shot of Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham and we won’t be able to stop geeking out until this comes out on November 1.
“Ender’s Game” stars Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin. The film was written and directed by Hood, the man behind the 2009 superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” The synopsis for the movie reads:
In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth,” the synopsis reads. “If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.
Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
