"Ender's Game" hits theaters on November 1, 2013.

It’s been a while since we heard anything about “Ender’s Game.” The adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s beloved novel is due in theaters on November 1, 2013, and we haven’t seen any sign of a poster, teaser or trailer since filming started on the flick. At least now we have an idea of how this film will tell Card’s story, though. A full synopsis for the movie has hit the web, and it sounds like “Ender’s Game” will stick pretty close to the novel that it’s based on.

“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.”

It continues, “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.”

Along with Butterfield, Kingsley and Ford, “Ender’s Game” also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin. The film was written and directed by Gavin Hood, the man behind the 2009 superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
