The Ender's Game on Blu-Ray Tournament is the first tournament on Twitch and MLG to be sponsored by a major movie studio. In this case, it's Lionsgate, who are helping foot the bill for the more than $20,000 in prize money for the upcoming StarCraft II tournament. 

See what they did there? Ender's Game is about a boy being trained to take on a space battle. 

"The skills used to develop battle leaders in Ender’s Game are drawn from real world gaming, especially the types of skills used by premier tournament level players,” said Anne Parducci, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Lionsgate.  “We are excited to partner with Major League Gaming and Twitch, both leaders in the eSports world, to present this unprecedented movie tie-in aimed directly at those who take gaming seriously."

The tourney will host 32 of the top StarCraft II players, with the first round kicking off on Twitch starting February 5 and running through February 9. The second round will begin on February 16. 

The winners from each event will go onto the Ender's Game on Blu-Ray Tournament on February 22, where the winner will take $10,000. 

Of course, this all falls inline with the release of Ender's Game on Blu-ray, coming February 11.
