First look at Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham from Ender's GameS

Sir Ben Kingsley is all tattooed and serious as the glorious Formics fighting pilot Mazer Rackham.

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we now have a good look at this important character (who apparently has a much larger role in the movie than the book). The half-Maori war hero saves the Earth from the alien Formics, and then lives a life of silent poster boy for the cause.

Kingsley explained to EW that his tattoos are more than just shock and awe:

Every gesture in the tattoo carries family history, family struggles – it’s your past... I was so enthralled. He’s in quite a contained, stylized uniform but then this wonderful face tells his warrior history.

The Ender's Game trailer will be attached to Star Trek Into Darkness... fingers crossed.
