A film adaptation of Orson Scott Card's titanic novel Ender's Game, about a brilliant lad with a gift for war, has been mired in development hell for decades. Which is a shame, as it's ready-made for cinematic awesomeness—and this amateur-assembled trailer shows the way.

Of course, "the way" involves footage from Star Trek, A.I., Starship Troopers, Serenity and Hitman—but it's still incredibly effective at stoking the desire to see a movie that doesn't exist.

Last we heard, Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) was on board to write and direct Ender's Game for Odd Lot Entertainment, which made Frank Miller's Spirit movie. We wish he, or somebody, would just get it done.
