New Footage for the Ender’s Game Movie

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.

Thanks to EnderWiggin for the video.

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.”

First Look at Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham!

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.
