Guess who's back in space? Harrison Ford, that's who! In the futuristic action-adventure flick "Ender's Game," the legendary actor makes his valiant return to the stars. Only this time, he's a bit more Yoda than solo gunslinger. Appearing alongside a young cast that includes Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Moises Arias, Ford plays Colonel Graff, a military teacher at an elite school for children. His job is to train the next generation of fleet commanders for an impending alien invasion.
Butterfield, who was last seen in Martin Scorsese's 3D romp "Hugo," takes the lead role, playing Andrew 'Ender' Wiggin, a boy whiz whose knack for combat strategies catches the eye of his teachers. Could he be Earth's last hope for winning the war against the alien race known as The Formics? Well, it's going to take a lot of coaching from not only Ford's Colonel Graff, but also a mysterious war hero named Mazer Rackham (played by Sir Ben Kingsley).
In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. 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.
