New ‘Ender’s Game’ Poster is a Window to Earth’s Alien Future

 Alien wars can be a total downer: defending the earth against those intent on destroying humanity is a serious business. Especially in the world of Ender’s Game, the Orson Scott Card epic-novel-series-turned-movie coming out this fall.

For those who were too busy during high school to actually do any of the required reading (I mean, that’s why the 90s created Sparknotes, right?), the novel focuses on a wonderfully-named young boy, Ender Wiggin who is tasked with saving the Earth from yet-another invasion of the Formics (a race of aliens with a hive mind) — something humankind has barely survived twice before — thanks to his prowess on the genius front. A military mind is a terrible thing to waste, eh?

The poster for Ender’s Game focuses on the out-of-this-world element: showing young Ender standing on the edge of it all, looking down on earth and all he must protect. Take a look for yourself.
