Various Rupert Grint Tidbits

No major news this morning, I’m afraid… However, here are a couple of things worthy of your attention.

First, We Are Movie Geeks has a great review of Order of the Phoenix that I hadn’t seen before. Of course they got nothing but words of praise for Rupert:

The rest I will let you discover for yourself, but just know that the cast is solid, all but a couple shaky moments from Emma Watson as Hermione, with Rupert Grint out acting all of the kids in the movies.

Read the review here, and we’ll be adding it to our Rave Reviews section shortly!

Second, Variety has revealed that the production company Matador Pictures has backed Wild Target financially, hence, despite the infamous credit crunch and recession affecting even the major Hollywood studios, Wild Target funding won’t be affected. According to Variety:

Matador Pictures operates a series of equity funds for low-budget pics under the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme, most recently backing “Wild Target” from CinemaNX.

Read the article here, and we’ll make sure to contact Matador Pictures to see if their involvement with Wild Target ends here. 😉

Also, Rupert is mentioned in a feature entitled How to start an Acting Career when I’m still in High School, posted by eHow. If you’re interested in following in Rupert’s footsteps, you might find the tips offered by eHow interesting/useful, so read them here.

Another thing (not Rupert related), J.K. Rowling’s American publisher Scholastic has announced an essay contest for American readers aged 8-17 to attend the launch of her latest book The Tales of Beedle the Bard in Edinburgh, Scotland on 4 December 2008 and meet JKR herself. In order to enter, fans are asked to write an essay of 200 words or less describing how they have helped others. Download the complete contest rules here. Thanks Gryffindor Gazette.

Let me also remind you that there’s only one day left to apply if you are interested in networking for Rupert with our affiliate Reelz Channel! As you might recall, ICM has been invited to attend the Reelz Channel’s Director’s Contribution Party in Los Angeles on 23 October and we are giving a chance for one fan to attend along with ICM staffer Lyn. If you are over 21 & from California, and think you’ve got what it takes to promote Rupert, then write in and tell us why you would be the perfect candidate! Email to

And if you happen to be Scottish and would like to meet Rupert’s Cherrybomb co-star Robert Sheehan, he will be attending the 2008 Discovery Festival in Dundee on 1-2 November. Find all the relevant info here.

Finally, don’t forget our Rupert’s Army October Project – only ten days left to stuff Empire with our letters! The guidelines can be found here.

I’d say greenish-blue. 🙂

I’ve got greenish-blue eyes aswell. Rupert + me= soulmatez 4 evah!

Seriously I really miss the guy. Where are you?

October 21st, 2008 at 3:06 PM

They still look blue to me. They look a lot like my eyes, sort of a grayish blue. I really don’t see any green. lol But that could be due to how we have our monitors set up. Different set ups could make the eye color look different.

Okay, girl’s I’ll be leaving for a 5-day holiday in Budapest in about eight hours, so be sure to get some Rupert-news until then!
I honestly don’t care what colour his eyes are, as long as they remain as expressive as they are. Actually I think it’s cool not to have a definite colour.
And I’ll read all these updates when I come back on Sunday as I really need my bed before take-off.

Greetings to all!

October 21st, 2008 at 5:18 PM

October 21st, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Donnie is soo popular right now since he’s basically put himself out there to the female fans, he’s so bad lol. He’s smoking hot!

Dude so you don’t want to know the eye color anymore? Ok fine.

October 21st, 2008 at 5:33 PM

Why Jo, did he send you an email telling us?
Maybe with a HQ of his iris?

October 21st, 2008 at 5:36 PM

Just had an awful end to my day. Needs new Rupert news to cheer me up. Come on Rupert! Tao, hadn’t thought about computer issues, but still think he’s green-eyed with flecks of blue maybe. New question. I’ve always been called auburn haired. I have (highlights aside) a deep red with blonde highlights. In not so bright light it can pass for brown. What color would you call Rupert’s?

October 21st, 2008 at 5:44 PM

We´ll have F-1 race next November 2nd here in the city where I live.
Wouldn´t be nice if Rupert could come?Maybe I could look him “in the eyes”!! 😀

Nah, too tired after filming two movies!
Guess what I wish could be the first thing he should do after finish WT??
