As promised earlier this week, the first teaser trailer for Ender's Game has been released on YouTube. Along with the trailer, star Asa Butterfield (who plays Ender), director Gavin Hood, and producer Bob Orci are taking to a Google+ Hangout to talk about the upcoming adaptation of Orson Scott Card's classic science fiction novel. We've seen hints of the film's overall aesthetic before, notably in some stills from both Ender's home and Battle School. A few days ago, a video showed short clips of Sir Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford, who respectively play mentors Mazer Rackham and Colonel Hyrum Graff. Now, there's a full two-minute trailer with much more footage.

The Hangout, shown below, starts at 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT, but a just-added Google feature means you can rewind it if you show up late. The film itself, meanwhile, is set for release in November of this year.
