Ender franchise fansite Ender News has received a new look at Ender's Game, the upcoming adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel of the same name and it features a look at True Grit breakout star Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, opposite Hugo star Asa Butterfield as Ender as the two seem to be having a Mess Hall discussion during Battle School.

Card's original book was released in 1985 and begins on Earth after an alien attack, when gifted children are recruited by a government desperate to fight back. The kids are taught a competitive game that's a cross between the Quidditch matches of Harry Potter and the Jedi light saber battles from Star Wars. Only the best and brightest will be chosen. A young boy emerges as a genius strategist, and the planet's best hope to destroy the alien Formic race.

The film is directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and will hit theaters on November 1 from Summit. I also included it as one of my most anticipated movies of 2013.

In addition to the photo above, the film's Facebook page revealed the Battle School logos you see below representing the Rat Army, Asp Army, Salamander Army and Dragon Army. I'm sure you can figure out which is which.

    This is my all time favorite book series, and definitely my most anticipated film of the year. Cant wait.

    I actually like how generic the Battle School logos look. It could be tempting to make them rival the Hogwarts house logos are something of that nature, but it fits with the environment so well.

    I can't wait for this to come out. I hope it can spawn sequels and follow the "Shadow Saga".

    Funny, it opens 3 weeks before catching fire...
