In Ender’s Game, director Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi novel, Asa Butterfield plays humanity’s last great hope against an alien invasion. Millions of innocent lives were lost during the last war, and Col. Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) sees in Ender the talent to defeat the aliens once and for all. “You alone can understand the enemy,” he tells the youngster in the new trailer. “You will be the one to save mankind.”
But the new trailer finally hints that all is not exactly as it seems. “THIS IS NO GAME,” reads the trailer, and Col. Graff is portrayed for the first time as someone who has a larger agenda. “We should tell him the truth,” says Ben Kingsley’s face-painter. “When this is all over, what will be left of the boy?” asks Viola Davis. Is Ender a mere pawn in game of life?

Ender’s Game opens in theaters on Nov. 1.
