Όπως έχει κάνει και στο παρελθόν, έτσι και τώρα η Audi, δημιούργησε ένα αυτοκίνητο επιστημονικής φαντασίας για την ταινία “Ender’s Game”.
Έχει κάποια χρόνια που η Audi έχει μπει πολύ ζεστά στο marketing μέσω ταινιών. Από το RSQ του “I, Robot” μέχρι αυτά που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν στα δύο πρώτα “Iron Man” και το R8 e-tron που θα «πρωταγωνιστεί» στο τρίτο, η Audi δεν έχει αφήσει blockbuster στο οποίο να μην συμμετέχει. Με το ίδιο σκεπτικό, αποφάσισε την συμμετοχή της και στο “Ender’s Game” της Summit Entertainment με ένα φουτουριστικό, υπερσύγχρονο εικονικό –με την έννοια του ότι δεν έχει υλική υπόσταση- αυτοκίνητο.
Για την ιστορία, το “Ender’s Game” είναι βασισμένο σε ένα βραβευμένο και best selling μυθιστόρημα και θα πρωταγωνιστούν ο Harrison Ford, η Asa Butterfield, ο Ben Kingsley και η Viola Davis. Σκηνοθέτης είναι ο Gavin Hood, γνωστός από το Tsotsi και το X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ακολουθεί το trailer της ταινίας, όπου μπορείτε να δείτε και το εν λόγω Audi.

Virtual vision: Audi designs science fiction car
- Movie car Audi fleet shuttle quattro displays a futuristic design
- Audi Design develops visions for the future world
- Summit Entertainment’s “Ender’s Game” features all-star cast including Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford
Ingolstadt, August 7, 2013 – Futuristic, progressive and cutting edge: the Audi Design Team has developed an entirely virtual car for Summit Entertainment’s film adaptation of the award-winning, best-selling novel “Ender’s Game”. With its visionary design, the Audi fleet shuttle quattro blends easily into the world of the science fiction feature film and combines futuristic design with groundbreaking technology. The fictional Audi fleet shuttle quattro seen in the film “Ender?s Game” marks the first time the car company has unveiled a purely virtual Audi in a feature film. True to the company?s “Vorsprung durch Technik” philosophy, the brand with the four rings collaborated with director Gavin Hood and the production team to use the latest technology to digitally and seamlessly integrate the Audi fleet shuttle quattro into the futuristic environment of the film. The company noted that the technologically advanced world of “Ender?s Game” is reflected in the design of the model. “The Audi in the movie represents progress and it appears in key scenes that have a lasting impact on the life of the protagonist,” explained Florian Zitzlsperger, responsible for Brand Partnerships at AUDI AG. “As a result, our Audi becomes part of this fictional world.”
“Designing the Audi fleet shuttle quattro was similar to customizing a tailor-made suit. We adapted it to the requirements of the world in „Ender?s Game? and at the same time had to take care to preserve our brand values,” said Frank Rimili, chief designer for the film project. “We were ultimately able to perfectly project our design philosophy into the fictional world of the movie.” Linda McDonough, a producer of “Ender?s Game,” added, “The Audi brand is already very forward thinking which made their inclusion in our film an organic fit.”
Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel, the feature film “Ender?s Game” is an epic adventure written for the screen and directed by Gavin Hood starring Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley and Viola Davis with Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford. In the near future, a hostile alien race has attacked Earth. In preparation for the next attack, humans begin training the best students to find their future leader. Ender Wiggin, a shy but strategically brilliant young man, is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters the training, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. He is soon ordained as the military?s next great hope and is charged to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race. Summit Entertainment, which co-financed the film with OddLot Entertainment, will release the film in the United States.The film will premiere in German cinemas on October 24.
