The cast of Gavin Hood’s Enders Game braved the cold, drizzly Los Angeles weather on Monday night to attend the premiere of the highly anticipated Sci-Fi flick.
The film, which is based on the 1985 best selling novel, has quite the all star cast. Viola Davis, Harrison Ford, and Ben Kingsley are just a few of the big names featured in the film, but it’s the children actors in the movie that critics are raving about.
“They come in with such enthusiasm about the work, and then come in 100% where as you, you can kind of get just jaded after while being in this business and a little bit cynical. They remind you of why you really actually became an actor to begin with,” Viola told us.
Ben Kingsley also talked about the kids, revealing that the youngsters made him better at his craft. “A lot of this wonderful generation of actors, they up our game because we can’t cheat,” Kingsley said. “Their acting is very pure.”
Hugo’s Asa Butterfield, who plays the role of Ender, shared with HipHollywood that he is thrilled to be part of such a great film. “I’ve had such a great experience bringing this character Ender to life, it’s very memorable,” he shared.
And leave it to Ford to explain the main reasons why families are going to love this film. “It’s a whopping big movie, with fantastic effects. It’s a world you’ve never seen before. Wonderful performances from the young people, and has real emotional heart to it.”
