Do you have what it takes to battle aliens in outer space? Interested in becoming a hero remembered by all humankind? And are you a child? If you answered yes to all three, thenew official “recruitment video” for the movie Ender’s Game should be right up your alley. The promo video for the upcoming movie based off Orson Scott Card’s hit sci-fi book series features Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff making his pitch for you to join the International Fleet, along with new previously unseen footage from the film itself. It also sends aspiring recruits on to the Battle School website, where they can take aptitude tests to evaluate their “strategic thinking” skills. It’s all part of the big promotional push forEnder’s Game that will be going on at the San Diego Comic Con, which starts tomorrow. As io9 notes, that marketing drive includes pieces of the film’s set across from the convention center, so attendees can visit the Battle School in real life, too. For the rest of us, the video will have to suffice for now.
