With CinemaCon taking place in Vegas right now Variety had the chance to interview the 3 cast members of Ender’s Game being honored at the event.
Harrison Ford, who is being presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award, says that Ender’s Game is “ just a whole different canvas — no replicants — and character and world view.”
Also, Asa Butterfield, who is receiving the Rising Star Award, reveals that what he was excited for turned out to be the most difficult to shoot.
“It was the best script I’d read, and I thought how much fun it would be to be in zero gravity with laser guns.” Actually, that turned out to be the hard part. “All the wire stuff is difficult. Floating up there, you need a strong core so you don’t look lie you’re in a harness. I’d go home completely sore after a day in harnesses.”
Last, Hailee Steinfeld, who is going to be presented the Female Star of Tomorrow Award, talks about her experience with working with co-stars her age.
“At that point I’d wanted to work with kids my age, and was looking forward to it,” she recalls. “The catch is that they were all boys, so it was 3½ months with a bunch of guys, which is not a bad thing.”
The cast, again, reinforce the idea that the movie is going to be amazing. Being or saying that Ender’s Game is a new slate of a sci-fi movie or putting in the effort to make scenes look real, or just showing again the companionship the cast had during filming.
Lionsgate will present on April 18th, along with the presentations of the awards.
