Ender’s Game Movie: First Look at Hailee Steinfeld as Petra Arkanian

Posted 02/24/2013 by alicemarvels in Behind the scenes


We finally get a peek at Hailee Steinfeld playing Petra Arkanian in this mess hall still from Summit’s film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. Asa Butterfield stars as Ender Wiggin, here leading the Salamander Army.

Previously, we’ve seen Asa’s Ender facing off against Harrison Ford, who plays a commanding Colonel Graff, giving Ender serious stink eye in this movie still:



Summit has also released Battle School logos for the movie, including the Asp, Dragon, Rat and Salamander Armies.


Meanwhile, the Hollywood Reporter outlines Summit’s concerns over involving the author, Orson Scott Card, too heavily in promotion for the movie, given that he is a very vocal gay rights opponent. Given the controversy surrounding his addition to a Marvel Superman anthology, Summit definitely has a tightrope to walk between respecting fans and paying proper homage to Card.



    I haven’t read this book yet 😀 Though, I love the movie stills.



    I really enjoyed this book and will watch ANYTHING with Harrison Ford in it. Rawr! He’s still adorable.


    I think Card promoting the movie would do far more damage than good. I’m tempted not to go see it out of principle anyway. He really is a ‘rabid homophobe’, isn’t he? It’s inexcusable. I’m sure this will be a great movie, but it still troubles me that he’ll get even more attention.
