I think it's pretty clear from the trailer that Ender knows what he's doing. IIRC (I read the book almost 20 years ago) he thinks he's still in training exercises when he's actually in real combat. Maybe the trailer is misleading, but if they have Ender knowing he's in real battle that will change the entire tone of the story. Sort of like they did with Blade Runner vs. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
