New Ender's Game footage reveals some massive sci-fi battles

Some new footage from Ender’s Game has been released, showing off exactly what they used that big budget on — blockbuster special effects and massive space battles.

The new footage is a nice break from all the controversy surrounding author Orson Scott Card’s social views, and shows that director Gavin Hood might’ve actually made a pretty good movie from the beloved young adult novel. Here's hoping.

As silly as it sounds, the new footage is part of a “teaser trailer” to help build buzz for the release of a new, full-length trailer tomorrow. Yes, it’s a trailer for a trailer, but it’s still some nice new footage we haven’t seen before. Hey, the movie doesn’t come out until November — this is the best we can do for now.

A lot of it is centered around Asa Butterfield’s Ender and Harrison Ford’s Col. Graff, with Ender showing off some high-tech training gear to fantastic effect. Ford also looks right at home as the gruff commander, and if they get the story right, this could be a fun winter flick.

You know, if it survives all the boycotts and stuff, of course.
