This past Saturday Variety’s Power of Youth held their annual event at Universal Studios. Amongst the attendees were many young actors that included some of the Ender’s Game cast, Khylin Rhambo (Dink Meeker) and Aramis Knight (Bean). Every year they award young actors for their inspiration and work for charity and communities. This year amongst the honorees was our very own Valentine, Abigail Breslin. She was presented the GenerationOn Award along with Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) and Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of The Southern Wild).abigail-breslin-poy-honoree

Abigail is being honored for her work with Project Sunshine.

“They have a gala every year, they invited me, and I got really inspired by the work they do with the kids and families,” She shared.

“Their volunteers visit hospitals and do various programs, like arts and crafts, and their ‘star for a day’ program, where the girl is a princess and the boy’s a prince. What’s really special is that they also help the families; they bring in people to give the parents massages and visit the siblings of the a ected children.”

Ender’s Game Cast Attend 2013 Oscars After Party

Kyhlin Rhambo updated his Facebook Page with some great photos of himself at the Oscars After Party. As well as added some to his Instagram.

 

In attendance with Khylin, Aramis Knight posted these pictures of himself and Khylin on his Instagram:

The guys look handsome in suits. They are definitely getting ready for their debut for the Ender’s Game premiere. The only difference will be us fans screaming and calling to them on the sidelines. Does Ender’s Game have a shot for being nominated for an Oscar? Let us know what you think in the comments.

The Weekly Stats: Thanksgiving Day Football and Music Videos…

So here we are the week after Thanksgiving here in US. The week after last week for those of you outside our borders. And since the cast and fans are so actively involved on the social medias and production is still ongoing behind Summit’s curtains every week, preferably Sundays but today is an exception for the holiday weekend, we are going to do a Weekly Stats segment where I rally up the updates and news from the past week and briefly list them in a post. That way for those of you who missed some news can go back and catch up.

So to start off the first report did you know that Jimmy Pinchak, Peter Wiggin, and Ender’s Game stunt coordinator Garrett Warren have a sort of tradition where they play football on Thanksgiving day? Well now you know. Its been going for eight years and this year was no exception.

The Cab released their new single “Endlessly” which features the always beautiful Haille Steinfeld.

–Stargroves released their second single “Within Me a Lunatic Sings” featuring vocals from the multi-talented Abigail Breslin.

–Summit released the official Ender’s Game synopsis. Which I still believe gives too much plot away. Check it out in the link.

–Sunday Khylin Rhambo attended the Hollywood Christmas Parade for his TV Show The First Family. Check your local listings for show times.

Some very exciting film news we got this week and a few fun pictures from the cast. Hopefully soon we can see more from Summit and less of singing crickets.

Ender’s Game Week Update

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. As a starter for the week and as we await the anticipating date of the screen adaption of Ender’s Game on November 1st 2013 here at Ender’s Game Fandom.Net we try to keep you notified and busy on anything and anyone Ender’s Game related.

During the month of September there was a big issue upon the special effects company Digital Domain Media Group Inc. (DDM), who is working on the special effects for Ender’s Game, filing for bankruptcy. The company was put up for a speedy auction on the 21st of September so to keep potential blockbusters on their scheduled production. Before the auction questions arose in concern of Ender’s Game. One was the possibility of schedule backup for the production. Two, the distribution of the Ender’s Game contracts to different buyers. Though, DDM was to be sold, the investment of the Ender’s Game film was to be included as a whole with DDM and the scheduling of production is to be kept on track. Finally, after a few days of negotiating and bidding Galloping Horses and Reliance MediaWorks acquired Digital Domain Media Inc. With Reliance MediaWorks receiving 30% and Galloping Horses the rest. Though, these companies have gained the Digital Domain Media company it remains unnoticed if they would keep the investment upon the Ender’s Game film.

As with the actors related to the Ender’s Game film here are a few updates that have popped up in my inbox:

Viola Davis has been in great busy days. Along with the recent release of her movie “Won’t back Down” featuring Maggie Gyllenhaal, she can be seen up next in the romantic film “Beautiful Creatures” as Amma; which also features actress Emma Thompson, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” as Lillian Friedman with Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy  and in the process of script editing and playing the biopic of Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.

Moises Arias can be heard as the voice of Antonio in “Despicable Me 2” and is in post-filming as Biaggio in “Toy’s House”.

Sir Ben Kingsley has also touched down on a few great roles which add on to his resume of epic characters. He is currently in production on one of the two following movies, “The Physician” as Ibn Sina; which also includes Stellan Skarsgård or “Iron Man 3” where he plays villain The Mandarin. He has also signed on to play Dr. Rank in Charles Huddleston’s adaption of Henrik Ibsen’s play “A Doll’s House” also featuring actress Jena Malone and King Harod in “Mary Mother of Christ” with Peter O’Toole and Odeya Rush.

Jimmy “Jax” Pinchak has also been in the music biz working on his own album and treating us with some peeks to his single “Tell Me”.

So as we cross off the days on our calendars we can fill in our time with the releases of the many and varied projects the actors have in works. From films to TV episodes to music the long wait will pass us by like a fly.

Variety’s Power of Youth 2012

Yesterday Saturday the 15th Variety held its annual Power of Youth event which “brings together the top young talent in Hollywood, encouraging young people everywhere to get involved in philanthropic and humanitarian causes.” –Variety Power Of Youth Facebook page.

In attendance, some being honored in their role of this generation, were some of the cast members from the Ender’s Game film, including the always beautiful and youthful Hailee Steinfeld (Petra Arkanian), Khylin Rhambo (Dink Meeker), Brandon Soo Hoo (Fly Molo), Jimmy Pinchak (Peter Wiggin) and Aramis Knight (Bean).

Also, the cast got to hang out with Brendan Meyer who was suppose to play the character of Stilson but due to scheduling conflicts had to drop out of the movie. So it’s nice to see the camaraderie between Ender’s Game still rooted.

Here are some pictures found around the internet (mainly twitter and instagram) and a video link to the Power of Youth 2012 site who interviews Hailee Steinfeld and her take on the youth generation. The photos are still coming in but we were promised by Jimmy Pinchak, via his facebook page, he was going to post some up when made available. So we will keep you all updated when they surface.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Jimmy Pinchak wasn’t able to attend the event because of timing. Photos from his experience, as we promised to update you on, aren’t available.
