The hype machine continues to roll into gear for the October release of big-budget sci-fi Ender’s Game, with a brand new trailer making its online debut earlier today.

Showcasing plenty of flashy visual effects, some grizzled dialogue from Harrison Ford and a concerned Ben Kingsley, this promo does a pretty solid job of selling the expected epic.

In case you are not aware, Ender’s is based on a series of mega-selling novels by Orson Scott Card, which document the journey of a young boy, selected to join Earth’s International Fleet as they look to repel the attacks of alien race The Formics.

Asa Butterfield takes on the role of Ender Wiggins, with support from the likes of Ford, Kingsley, Viola Davis and Hailee Steinfeld.

Ender’s Game hits UK cinemas on October 25.
