December 24th, 2008 10:01 AM Firstly have a Merry Christmas. It’s the 24th and we are all waiting to open and give away gifts along with love. We staffers from ICM hope that all your wishes comes true. As an extra little Christmas gift from Santa we have an article that mentions Rupert Grint’s next upcoming film Cherrybomb officially being selected for Berlinale. There’s nothing new mentioned in the article, but with the words from Louise Ryan comes a picture of Robert Sheehan (Luke). This picture is interesting to discuss as you will notice Luke’s bloody knuckles and sad face when you view it in our gallery here. Feel free to speculate about the reason for his appearance in the spoiler thread at our forums.
And if you just entered ICM, make sure you don’t miss our interview with the graphic maker from “Cherrybomb” Brian Philip Davis.

But what starts out as a game turns deadly serious when they discover the wild ride they’ve set in motion won’t let them get off.
