Ender’s Game Plot Synopsis. The official plot synopsis for Ender’s Game (2013) has been released for the Gavin Hood directed film. Ender’s Game is based on Orson Scott Card‘s novel and if you have read it, the plot synopsis for its film adaptation will come as no big surprise. I am sure there are going to sub-plots marginalized, some not used all together but the core story will be there (caveat: I have not read the book yet).
The official plot synopsis to Ender’s Game (spoilers):
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.
