New posters have been released for Ender’s Game and Frozen. The Ender’s Game posters put an emphasis on the International Fleet, a group of children who have been recruited and trained for the sole purpose of eliminating the threat of an alien invasion. Using propaganda-style posters is interesting because in the book, students are chosen and not encouraged to be cannon fodder like Starship Troopers. Ender (Asa Butterfield) is a “Third”, which means that he violates Earth’s two-child policy. If the IF were so keen on recruiting people, I assume families would be encouraged to have more children. I’m curious to see if this is a change from the book, or just a change in the marketing. As for Frozen, the poster tells us that the snowman (voiced by Josh Gad) is probably going to be wacky.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Ender’s Game opens on November 1st, and also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin, and Harrison Ford. Frozen opens in 3D on November 27th and also features the voices of Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Idina Menzel.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ender’s Game:
In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young minds to find the future Mazer.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is recruited to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult challenges and simulations, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham himself to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
Here’s the official synopsis for Frozen:
When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, an amazing and comedic snowman named Olaf, Everest-like conditions and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
