‘Ender’s Game’ Poster Reveals A Slight Change To Battle Room

If there is one thing you can count on avid fans of novels to do is to immediately jump on any and all mistakes or inaccuracies a director makes for a film adaptation. So just imagine what fans will do if Gavin Hood doesn’t get the look of the Battle Room right in Ender’s Game. Well a new poster gives us a slight tease of what it could look like.

For those that don’t know, the Battle Room is where zero gravity war games are held and cadets are trained to become commanding officers. Asa Butterfield will play the child prodigy Ender who has the skills necessary to be the best commanding officer in the field. He’ll be joined by Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, and Viola Davis. Check out the newest poster for Ender’s Game here below.

Director Gavin Hood spoke to Yahoo!, who premiered the poster, about the vision of the battle room:

This is the high school football field, only it’s in three dimensions. It’s the size of a football field in all directions: up, down, left, right. And the idea is teams jump out from opposite ends of this amazing space and play this amazing game of 3D paintball, almost.

Hood then revealed that the battle room would not be a cube, but instead a sphere:

“What if we could see through? What if we could see out of the space, and we’re moving around the Earth and turning at the same time?” He said he felt that would create “a really strange, disorienting experience.”

  2. Hope they know what they’re doing. The art of translating from a book to a movie is to know the right things to change and what to leave to keep the feel of the book. Hopefully the people working on this movie get it right since it’s based on such an awesome book.
