Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield come up against a terrifying alien race known as the Formics in new movie Ender's Game, from director Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine). A new trailer for the sci-fi move rolled out online on Tuesday afternoon (May 7, 2013), with  Butterfield participating in a Google+ hangout to coincide with the first look of the new movie, based on the novel by Orson Scott Card.

Set in a near future in which the alien race have attached the Earth, Ender's Game follows Andrew Wiggin (Butterfield) as a bright kid who's recruited to help humanity face future threats. He is guided in his growth by Colonel Hyrum Graff (Ford) and soon finds himself under the tutelage of the legendary Mazer Rackam, aka, The Top Dog (Ben Kingsley). 

"They know our strategies. They've learned our weaknesses, and the alien attack nearly destroyed us," Harrison Ford's Graff explains in voiceover. "That must never be allowed to happen again."

The trailer sees plenty of chaotic war footage between the human race and the aliens, with fighter jets fending off the invasions. It all looks pretty standard sci-fi fare and it's unclear whether Ender's Game is going to have enough to emerge from the pile of this year's sci-fi releases likes Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, After Earth and Pacific Rim.

The movie hits cinemas on November 1, 2013.
