As Ender’s Game prepares for its Nov. 1 take-off, Lionsgate is shifting its marketing efforts into high gear. Earlier this week, the studio unveiled a slick new website to promote the film, and now it has announced a major rollout at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Fans at the convention will be able to hear from the stars of the film at a Hall H panel featuring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin, as well as director Gavin Hood and producer Robert Orci. They can also check out a huge Ender’s Game exhibit, which will be constructed outside the Hilton Gaslamp and give viewers a chance to insert photos of themselves into the Battle Room.
