Viola Davis Talks About the Many Values of “Ender’s Game,” And I Made Her Say For Realz! HA! 


Talking to Viola Davis is so soothing! The Oscar nominee is cool, calm, and collected but still knows how to drop street lingos like for realz (HA!). In the upcoming film “Ender’s Game” opening Friday, Nov. 1st, Davis stars as Major Gwen Anderson who serves as the heart compared to Harrison Ford’s Colonel Graff’s brain.

*** Her interest in making the film
*** The dichotomy between her and Ford’s character
*** The film’s many great themes
*** Why she said for realz!
*** What she wants viewers to take away from watching “Ender’s Game?”



Official “Ender’s Game” Synopsis:

In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the militarys next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, hes trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
