Harrison Ford Stares Down Asa Butterfield In First Look At ‘Ender’s Game’

Harrison Ford Stares Down Asa Butterfield In First Look At 'Ender's Game'

So, how did veteran Harrison Ford help rising young actor Asa Butterfield during the production of “Ender’s Game“? By not being too chummy once they broke for the day. “The relationship between [Harrison] and Asa was very close,” director Gavin Hood told EW, “but he didn’t overly befriend him off the set. He helped Asa by allowing that slight sense of intimidation to be there.” 

And that feeling is palpable in the first look at the pair in the upcoming sci-fi spectacle. The movie is based on sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card‘s novel, a story that finds the Earth at war with an insectoid race named the Formics, and follows Ender, one of a group of children being trained to be military commanders. It is beloved by many fans of the genre, and the big question for many will be if Hollywood will screw up the ending, which isn’t all rose petals and sunshine. “That ending — and the complex moral questions that it raises — is one of the reasons why I love the book,” Hood said. “I promise you that it is very much there.”

Co-starring Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis and Abigail Breslin, “Ender’s Game” gets played on November 1st.

I have boycotted this film already because it comes from the poison pen of the vile, ranting homophobe Orson Scott Card. I'm pretty disgusted that Harrison Ford has associated himself with the project.
