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

Good luck Rupert!
Have fun at the screenings and enjoy it all.
Cherrybomb looks great, I’m looking forward to seeing it at the Dublin film festival in a few weeks. I hope you enjoyed filming in Belfast, it was great to read about the filming here.
All the best!

Good Luck Rupert. We are all very excited and very proud. Cherrybomb sounds like a wonderful, fantastic movie. I think you have chosen very well, but we didn’t expect otherwise of course. It would be awesome if your movie won in one of the categories it’s nominated, but even if not, you have already won in any case.

Good luck on the film. Can’t wait to see it. We’ve heard so much about the talented people involved in making this movie; I hope it was a great experience for you. I’m just not excited to see the movie because you are in it, but I am so intrigued to see your new performance. You are truly one of the most talented actors out there now, and I just can’t wait to see what you’ve done in Cherrybomb.

Good luck again!

rupert, I’m so excited that you decided to take a risk and do Cherrybomb! Everyone is so proud of you and hope that this opportunity will give you many more opportunities to challenge yourself. I know that everyone on staff here, including myself, will follow your career till we’ re all old and gray! When someone asked you in an interview a long time ago, if you wanted to be a great British actor, you said you hoped so. Well, I believe this down to the tips of my toes, because you WILL be so!

Have an awesome time in Berlin and enjoy watching yourself wreak all sorts of havoc as Malachy! I know I will!

Much love always, Michelle
