Posted Tue Dec 17, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

The science fiction blockbuster based on the award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card will explode on Blu-ray in February!

In an early retailer announcement, Summit Entertainment will release 'Ender's Game' on Blu-ray on February 11.

In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics has attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the next great leader. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Deleted/Extended Scenes with Audio Commentary with Director Gavin Hood; Feature-length Audio Commentary with Producers Gigi Pritzker and Bob Orci; and a Blu-ray exclusive "Ender's World: The Making of Ender's Game" 8-part featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
