When an alien race threatens our very existence, will the brilliant mind of a boy on the verge of manhood be the key to our survival? That's the question raised in Ender's Game, on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. In this exclusive clip from the bonus features, see why young Asa Butterfield was the perfect pick to go toe-to-toe with Harrison Ford and, well, save the world!
Set in the near future after a hostile alien race has attacked Earth, Ender's Game follows the recruitment and rigorous training of one Ender Wiggan, a shy-but-strategically brilliant boy who is put through the paces at Battle School in outer space. Can he rise through the ranks and demonstrate a fierce ability to out-think those who are more physically imposing while maintaining his emotional state of mind? Based on the bestseller by Orson Scott Card and directed by Gavin Hood, Ender's Game also co-stars Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin.
Special features on the Ender's Game Blu-ray Combo Pack include an exclusive 45-minute "making of" featurette, deleted and extended scenes, filmmaker commentary and more.
