They're really rolling out this wholeEnder's Game thing in the most frustrating and unnecessarily teasing way possible. The good thing, however, is that it looks effing amazing. We now know that because they finally gave us a serviceable trailer. Not a trailer of a trailer, like they did yesterday, or a viral recruitment video or anything like that. Trailer.
Check it: Harrison Ford vs. Sir Ben Kingsley and a budding space-wizard-kid named Ender.
The basic plot, for you sci-fi philistines, is that this kid Ender is 'the one' who will save humanity from another invasion by some advanced aliens. He's like Neo Potter Atreides...but with strategy, and in space. So, we'll see him command giant space fleets in a massive game of kill-or-be-killed Starcraft.
Oh, and this is the first of fifteen books, so there's really no rush.
