Ender Wiggin Speaks! Asa Butterfield Talks About “Ender’s Game”

Uploaded on Wednesday 30 October 2013



He wowed us in Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” and now, Asa Butterfield wants to prove he can also star in a thought-provoking sci-fi blockbuster. In “Ender’s Game,” Asa is the one! The one to save us from the formic aka buggers, the giant insect-like aliens terrorizing our planet. In order for us to buy into the film’s premise that a 12-year-old kid can save the world, Asa must be equally believable. And trust me, he was! In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted him to making the film?
*** How did he prepare for the role both physically and mentally?
*** How he was able to convey the character’s inner dialogue
*** Shooting the zero-gravity scenes
*** Working with Sir Ben Kingsley again
*** Was Harrison Ford also a mentor to him in real life much like in the movie?
*** The meaning of his name
*** What does he want viewers to take away after watching “Ender’s Game?”
