Hailee Steinfeld Talks About “Ender’s Game!" I'm Proud of My Fellow Filipino! 


Hailee Steinfeld is growing up to be a fine actress and an equally-fine person! She mesmerized us with her star-making turn in the “True Grit” remake, and now, she’s off to battle giant insect aliens in “Ender’s Game” from the beloved book by Orson Scott Card. She stars as Petra Arkanian, a tough-as-nails student who becomes Ender’s (Asa Butterfield’s) friend. Oh yeah, plus points that Hailee is a fellow Filipino, heyyyyy. In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted her in making “Ender’s Game?”
*** What attracted her to the character of Petra?
*** Working with Asa
*** Filming the zero-gravity scenes
*** A proud Filipino!
*** Has she visited the Philippines?
*** Has she eaten Filipino food?
*** The meaning of Asa’s name in the Philippines
*** What does she want viewers to feel or think after 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.

"We Won, He Lost!" Harrison Ford’s Message in Response to “Ender’s Game’s” Author’s Anti-Gay Remarks 


I was nervous bringing this up to Harrison Ford who plays Colonel Graff in the upcoming film, “Ender’s Game” opening Friday, Nov. 1st. I enjoyed the movie’s many great themes including compassion and peace. That’s why it behooves everyone that the book’s author, Orson Scott Card, made his anti-gay marriage comments publicly. So when I interviewed Ford, I couldn’t help but bring up the topic. To which the actor replied, without batting an eyelash, “we won, he lost!” Whoa! I’m now Harrison Ford’s biggest fan! Take a look at the interview below:

Finally, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Trailer is Here, and It's Fantastic! 


20th Century Fox has unveiled the full teaser trailer for Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past." The director returns to the franchise along with Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, and Patrick Stewart. I loved Matthew Vaughn's previous "X-Men" offering, "First Class," but I have faith that Singer will make an awesome follow-up.

We'll see.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" flies into theaters on May 23, 2014.

Here's the brand new teaser/trailer:
