Ender's Game, which is currently in production, has shifted its original release date of March 15th, 2013 to later in the year, on November 1st, 2013.
Gavin Hood directs this adaptation of Orson Scott Card's young adult novel, which follows a gifted young man's military training 70 years after aliens have invaded earth. Producer Roberto Orci has updated his blog with the following photo and statement from space camp.
" "Houston, we have a problem. We don't know how to land the Shuttle." Good thing it's just a simulator safely on the ground at SPACE CAMP in Huntsville, Alabama. Aramis Knight, Moises Arias, Asa Butterfield & Suraj Partha (pictured above from a monitor in the MISSION CONTROL ROOM ) and the rest of our cast agreed that to do Ender's Game right, they had to train as though they were really headed into ZERO G. And this wasn't just an afternoon spent taking a vanity tour. From the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU), which simulates extra-vehicular shuttle missions in Earth's orbit, to the microgravity training chair that prepared astronauts for moonwalks during the Apollo program, the week at Space Camp was genuine prep for the feeling of reality that this movie deserves. And after all, the army that trains together stays together."
