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.”
Enders Game hits theaters November 1.
Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’
Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.
“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”
Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.
So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.
To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.
Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.
In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.
It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
