You may know 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld for her Academy Award nominated performance as Mattie Ross in the 2010 film True Grit. Now, the part-Filipina actress plays Petra Arkanian in the Action-Adventure Sci-Fi film Ender’s Game.
Based on the best-selling novel “Ender’s Game”, the film focuses on the near future where humans are at war against an alien race called Formics. To prepare for the next invasion, the International Military trains young minds in search of a new leader. They come across Ender- a brilliant and gifted child and train him to lead his fellow soldiers into the battle that determines the future of mankind.

Check out actress Katie Chang in the new teaser trailer of “The Bling Ring”. Based on actual events, the film follows a group of teenagers who rob the home of celebrities. “The Bling Ring” also stars British actress Emma Watson.
This is the kind of genre that Ha Ji Won is meant to do: she’s undoubtedly one of South Korea’s best female action stars. I’ve always enjoyed her in comedies more (there’s something about her that shines through in comedic type roles). In the first teaser trailer for The Huntresses, she plays the leader to a trio of bounty hunters, set in the Joeson Era. Kang Ye Won (El Condor Pasa) plays the housewife who’d rather use her kitchen knives for fighting off bad guys and Son Ga In (of Kpop girl group Brown Eyed Girls) plays the youngest member, the best fighter of the the three. The movie comes out in May, but hope this teaser trailer will hold you until then!
Korean actor Lee Byung-hun and French Cambodian actress Elodie Yung both star as Storm Shadow and Jinx respectively in the upcoming G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation. Check them make look kicking ass so easy in this preview clip (the four minute version will be shown before Hansel and Gretel this Friday).
G.I. Joe 2 will be released in theaters on March 29, 2013 and is directed by Jon M. Chu.
Our former cover girl Freida Pinto returns to India in her latest film, Trishna, which is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC in July and will be released to US theaters on July 13. The film is directed by Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart) and also co-stars Riz Ahmed, Roshan Seth, and Anurag Kashyap.
Based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel, Tess of the D’Ubervilles, master filmmaker Michael Winterbottom’s newest film stars Freida Pinto who soars as Trishna in her most revealing performance yet. Trishna lives with her family in a village in Rajasthan, India’s largest state. As the eldest daughter, she works in a nearby resort to help pay the bills. Jay (Riz Ahmed, FOUR LIONS) is the wealthy son of a property developer. When he takes up managing a resort at his father’s request, he meets Trishna at a dance and their fates cross. Jay finds every opportunity to win Trishna’s affection and she accepts his efforts with shy curiosity. But when the two move to Mumbai and become a couple, Jay’s deep family bond threatens the young lovers’ bliss. Shot with Winterbottom’s agile camera, TRISHNA is a powerful look at the tension between ancient privilege and modern equality, between codes of urban and rural life and ultimately a hymn to both the glory and the tragedy that comes with beauty in all forms.
