Good Luck Rupert!


Good Luck Rupert!

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: 

Dear Rupert,

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!

ICM readers and staff

Rupert, I have been a fan of yours since the first Harry Potter movie. I was in awe of your talent as a child and I am in awe of your talent as a man. I am proud to be your fan and I wish you all the luck in the world with everything that you do. It warms my heart to see people make comments on your talent because I know that the compliments are well deserved. You have a natural gift and you aren’t afraid to take risks. On top of that, you seem like the sweetest guy in the world. Good luck to you at Berlinale.

I’ve just talked to Jo on the phone, she’s at the airport, getting ready to board the plane for Berlin via New York! She and AJ will be travelling several thousand miles just to see Cherrybomb in Berlin! (Jo’s from Texas, AJ from Maryland!) That’s called dedication!

Congratulations, Rupert! We are all so proud of you! I can’t wait to see Cherrybomb. When I first heard you were doing this film, my heart swelled with pride. I think you’ve made very wise decisions as to the type of films you do outside of HP. I’ve heard only good things about your performance from those who have been interviewed about their work on the film. I can’t wait to be taken on the rollercoaster of emotions that Cherrybomb no doubt provides the viewer and to see you shine.

Good Luck girls! Have fun!
Yeah we obviously know that the anonymous is AJ!

Rupert, it’s time for you to get the recognition you have deserved for quite some time now. I wish you the best of luck and I know you did a great job in this movie, Cherrybomb, because you are the best actor of the trio and more people need to realize that. And they will I think. Take care man, wish you all the best. Cheers.
