First Look Of Ben Kingsley As Mazer Rackham From 'Ender's Gamer'
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.05.01
Entertainment Weekly has released a new movie image of actor Ben Kingsley as the character of Mazer Rackham from the sci-fi epic Ender’s Gamer. According to Kingsley, it was the director-writer Gavin Hood with the make-up and costume team to create the tattooed half-Maori war hero.
“Every gesture in the tattoo carries family history, family struggles – it’s your past,” the actor says. “I was so enthralled. He’s in quite a contained, stylized uniform but then this wonderful face tells his warrior history.”
The Ender experience reunites Kingsley with Hugo co-star Asa Butterfield, a prodigy who could be earth’s last hope against space invaders if he can survive a brutal military school experience — it’s Taps in space, essentially. The film also stars Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis.
