February 6, 2009, 5:55 AM–Can you guys believe that Rupert Grint‘s movie Cherrybomb will have its world premiere in two days?! ICM staffers Jo and Karo and our resident sidekick AJ are already busy packing their suitcases for Berlin, and we suppose the Grints are getting ready for the Berlin premiere too! Thus, it is only appropriate to wish Rupert good luck before his big day! So, here we go:
You can’t imagine the excitement we felt for you when we first heard that you were filming Cherrybomb. Once we got a hold of some more information, we all made quick work of researching your directors, co-stars, and other aspects of the production. We were pleased to see you had chosen such a talented group of people to tackle a project very outside of your comfort zone. We’ve all researched Glen and Lisa’s work, and we believe that their joint gifts, coupled with a unique story and visually dynamic sets will work well to further your career in a positive way.
You said a while ago that you were worried that your role in Cherrybomb might upset some of your fans. Don’t worry! If anything, you’ve made us hungry for more! We’ve been spending countless moments discussing the movie and posting theories about the plot! We’ve been trying to whittle away the sort of character Malachy is this entire time. And of course, there’s the debate about who is dying at the end… To sum up, we are so excited for this film!
We’re even more excited for you. When we heard Cherrybomb was premiering at Berlinale, one of the largest festivals in the world, we were very proud. The fact that this film managed to beat out many competitors to be screened there only cemented our anticipation. We here at ICM are very glad you are taking risks and branching out with your acting. We know you’ll have a long career, and look forward to enjoying this step along the way with you!
Good luck on your big night, Rupert!
