Yesterday Harrison Ford, who plays Colonel Graff, appeared on the German TV show Wetten Das to promote the Ender’s Game movie. Not even two days after we got the first movie clip from Ender’s Game we have a second video with new footage showing Petra and Ender in the battle room! Watch the video below.
From the very little German I can understand, either Petra or Ender counts from 3 to 1 when they flip backwards off each other.
You can also see Ender smiling. He’s smiling in the battle room. Maybe because he disobeyed orders and is finally doing something to help his army win *wink wink*.
What do you think about the new footage? Are you freaking out for the movie yet? Let us know in the comments.
We’ve seen pictures and movie posters come from the many media sites the Ender’s Game movie has set up. Just recently we got a new image of Petra Arkanian in her flash suit. Today the Ender’s Game Facebook released a new special effects image of Mazer Rackham accompanied with the caption “The legend of the century will teach the hero of tomorrow.”
Ender’s Game movie premieres in 43 days! November 1st.
Not much news has come from the IF yet. However, here is some fan creations you all might like. Continuing his awesome and creative designs Darian Robbins has added to his list of fan-made t-shirts that can be found on redbubble.com.
He has an assortment of different designs so be sure to check them out.
The new episode Ender’s Teacher is now up on EnderCast.com. Crystal and Kelly from EnderWiggin and EnderNews were kind enough to have me on the podcast for this episode. Together we dissected the 10 second teaser for the teaser trailer.
Also, I got the chance to play Pop Quiz, Fart Eater so listen to see if I was promoted commander or labeled the first ever fart eater on the show.
Topics for this weeks episode are:
Trailer announcement for May 7
First look at Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham
Brief recap of our sheer terror over meeting Sir Ben just like in the photo
10 second teaser breakdown
Don’t forget Tuesday May 7th, director Gavin hood, producer Bob Orci, and star Asa Butterfield, along with everyone from the Ender’s Game fansites, including ourselves, will be hanging out in a Goggle+ hangout to finally witness the Ender’s Game trailer and ask the Ender’s Game crew some questions.
To play a character in a film isn’t the only thing an actor needs to transition that character from novel to film. In addition to Gavin Hood’s ideas for the film the make-up Ben Kingsley had to wear for his role as Mazer Rackham was key in bringing Mazer to life.
EW gives us the first look at Ben Kingsley in full costume as Mazer Rackham.
The kids on set weren’t the only ones being taught about their roles. Ben Kingsley had a Maori tribal expert with him explaining the history about his tattoo.
“Every gesture in the tattoo carries family history, family struggles – it’s your past,” the actor says. “I was so enthralled. He’s in quite a contained, stylized uniform but then this wonderful face tells his warrior history.”
You can read the full article at EW. How do you feel about the addition of the Maori tattoo’s? Are they a creative addition? Or do you think a little too much makeup for the character? Let’s discuss our thoughts in the comments.
Summit has announced via Facebook that in 7 days (next tuesday; 5/7) Google and YouTube will premiere the Ender’s Game Trailer online. Who’s excited for a week countdown?
Also, tune in tomorrow for EW‘s premiere at the first look of Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham. We’ll get to see the war hero in his surprising face tattoos, what do you guys think will be shown in the still?
Who’s going to be glued to their computer screens for the trailer? What do you think of the trailer announcement? Let us know in the comments?
The Daily Record recently Spoke to Sir Ben Kingsley about his role in the new Iron Man 3 movie and also talked about the Ender’s Game movie.
He reveals some ethnic background about his character, Mazer Rackham.
“I play Mazer Rackham, who is a combination of an ancient Maori warrior and a teacher who trains children how to operate drones.
Though, Iron Man, too, uses green screen, in Ender’s Game there was A LOT of green screen involved.
“It was quite different from the challenge of The Mandarin when I was very rarely involved in green screen (a technique used to superimpose scenes or effects on to a background).
“In Gandhi, we had none. We actually had 400,000 people on the screen for the funeral.
“But with Ender’s Game, which I think will be a wonderful film, there was a lot of green screen.”
Should we be skeptical about all the green screen being used? Or in this day and age with newer and advanced technology we shouldn’t question so much the ability of the green screen? What do you think? The comment box is open to discussion.
The clash continues in set 2 of round 2 with Ender Wiggin going against Minho from The Maze Runner. In his first challenge Ender passed by a great margin but now it seems like he has fallen behind. Let’s help him get back to his feet and play the game!
Go to schedule of clashes and vote for your favorite characters in this set. Polls are open until 9/26 midnight ET/9pm PT.
If you haven’t yet seen Peter Wiggin was included in the first set of round 2 but unfortunately lost his battle against Percy Jackson’s Leo Valdez. But don’t fret we can still keep 2 of the 3 characters that made it this far. Help Ender NOW and keep an eye out for Mazer Rackham.
