Movies Like Ready Player One That You Need To See ASAP

Like Ready Player One, Ender's Game is based on a best-selling book, but the novel took much longer to get to the big screen. Although sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card wrote the original short story in 1977 (which was expanded into a novel in 1985), it wasn't until 2013 that it got the big budget movie treatment in a film directed by Gavin Hood and featuring Harrison Ford.



The book deals with such timeless themes and contemporary ideas that it's easy for new generations to get immersed in the story. In a war-torn future, humankind has recruited gifted children to command their military fleets against an alien race called the Formics. Among these recruits, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) is one of the most gifted, thanks to his ability to empathize with his opponents and uncover their weaknesses. Unfortunately, Ender soon learns the video game-style simulations he's running have some very real consequences against an enemy that may not be so malevolent.


Much like The Last Starfighter and Ready Player One, Ender's Game offers a world where the often-trivialized skills of gamers gain massive significance. Unlike these other films, however, Hood's movie takes a darker look at video game culture and explores how viewing war as a game helps dehumanize your opponent.
