Written twenty eight years ago, Ender’s Game is the latest young adult novel to arrive at the cinema. It is a science fiction classic written by Orson Scott Card which in 1985 won the Nebula Award for the best work of science fiction published in the United States.
Asa Butterfield (who also starred in The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and Hugo) plays Ender Wiggin. “One of the things I wanted to do was do the book justice and please the already loyal fans of the story, as well as introduce millions of new people to the book and to the world of Ender,” said Butterfield. “There’s a lot to live up to.”
