In the book Ender's Game, which dialogues or scenes are most important??

I'm doing a project of "Ender's Game" and I have to make a poster. It's supposed to include a scene or dialogue from the book, which are persuasive and make someone want to see the movie. Can anyone give me any ideas??

And I also have to cast the main characters with using the pictures of real actresses or actors. Which characters should be included? I think Ender, Val and Graff. Is that enough?

As a movie, the action scenes must be emphasized.  Therefore, the subtle and sophisticated relationship between Ender and his sister Valentine might have to be sacrificed in your poster (although she can be suggested in the background.)  The same is true of Graff, even though he is important in the plot.  Your best bet might be an action shot of Ender floating or kicking or flying in a fight room, against any one of his “opponents,” to give the feeling that the movie is about action fighting.  Even though you and I know the book has other levels of meaning, a poster’s job is to capture the experience of seeing the movie.  (Compare, for example, the posters of the Matrix movies.) As for a quotation, how about “Where could Ender go to learn new things?” to accompany the fighting graphic? As for casting, your best guess is as good as mine.
