Ender's GameAfter decades of directors and studios taking on the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s ground-breaking and best-selling novel, Ender’s Game finally came to the screen with Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Summit.

In the PG-13 movie, young Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield, Hugo) is recruited by the International Military to train to lead a fight against an alien race that nearly annihilated the human race in a previous invasion.

Harrison Ford (Cowboys & Aliens) stars as the colonel who leads Ender’s training, Abigail Breslin (New Year’s Eve) plays his sister, Ben Kingsley (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) is a legendary fighter, Viola Davis (The Help) is the psychiatrist who helps Ender and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Aramis Knight (Crossing Over) are fellow trainees.

Ender’s Game grossed $60.5 million at the box office, wowing moviegoers to a 74% approval, even if critics were a little behind that at 62%, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Both the Blu-ray and DVD will contain these special features:

  • deleted and extended scenes with audio commentary by director Gavin Hood
  • feature-length audio commentary with producers Gigi Pritzker and Bob Orc
  • and digital copy and instant streaming via UltraViolet.

The Blu-ray offers the exclusive eight-part featurette “Ender’s World: The Making of Ender’s Game.”
