Reviews Of Rupert Grint And Cherrybomb!


February 9, 2009 2:12 AM- Reviews of Rupert Grint and Cherrybomb are slowly starting to trickle in. Firstly, Charles Masters, a French correspondent from, has given his review of Cherrybomb,Β  and the scene and the mood of the crowd at the theatre for the premier. He even mentions fans flying in from America to see the world premier of the movie! Could these be our American girls? Possibly. You may view his videoed review of Rupert Grint and Cherrybomb here. Please be warned, that this reporter is a grown man andΒ  the movie obviously didn’t appeal to him. However, if we all remember, this movie was made to be appealing to young audiences. We digress.

More written reviews are coming in as well, but for the time being, you may read them in our official Cherrybomb reviews thread in the forum here.Β  Thanks to everyone who has as been as busy as the ICM staff, stalking every site imaginable and submitting links. You guys are the best! Be sure to stick around because, I’m sure that today will be as exciting as yesterday was!

UPDATE: Just a quick note re: today’s timetable. As we’ve already mentioned, the Q&A session with Rupert and Kim starts at 2:50pm CET, to be followed by Q&A with Glenn and Lisa from 3:15. The movie will be shown again at 4:30, and our girls will be seeing it of course! (They have decided not to post their reviews until they’ve had a chance to see the movie once again.) So I’m expecting them to come online around 6pm CET (that’s 12pm EST) and give us all the latest info! Of course they might drop in between the Q&A and the screening, but that depends on how much time they’ll have.Β 

NOTE: Some of you have said in the forum that you’ll be going to Dublin to see Cherrybomb there. As we might have mentioned, ICM staffer Ivana will be there too to do press, so we might organise a meet-up or something! Anyway we’ll talk about this in due time, but just in case you’re among those who will be going to Dublin, email us at :)

UPDATE 2: I’m in the midst of translating and adding articles to our Cherrybomb Reviews page. Some of them are actual reviews, while the others are just reports about the yesterday’s premiere. I will be adding more throughout the day, so keep checking!

UPDATE 3: While we wait for the ICM dream team to upload their exclusives, you may view some clips from the yesterday’s premiere on Youtube here and here. Thanks Malene!

UPDATE 4: Jo has just notified me that the directors’ interview has been cancelled, while Rupert and Kim interview has only just begun. Will keep you updated!

UPDATE 5: TIK Online has two cool videos of Rupert: one is of him arriving at the Berlin airport on Saturday, andin the other one we can see Rupert leaving his hotel and driving off in a black limo for the premiere! View them here.

February 9th, 2009 at 4:02 AM

oh and Ivana.. do we have girls updating Ticker today as well?

February 9th, 2009 at 4:09 AM

Yes, but they won’t start just yet, because the round table interview and the screening are in the afternoon hours. They’re all awake and working though!

February 9th, 2009 at 4:11 AM

Well, I had a nap earlier. lol But not I haven’t gone to beddie bye yet. I didn’t want to leave the monster unattended.

February 9th, 2009 at 4:16 AM

I know! I have to go to work now, but will be back online in approximately two and a half hours.

In the immortal words of the foolish woman from “Office Space”: “It looks like someone has a case of the Mondays!” πŸ˜›

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pass the hell out now.

February 9th, 2009 at 4:24 AM

Oh, thank you Ivana!! *sends hugs and kisses across the big blue wet thing.*

February 9th, 2009 at 6:06 AM

February 9th, 2009 at 7:40 AM

I’ve got them. I will email to you.

February 9th, 2009 at 7:44 AM

Thanks suzeeq! I am at work, so a bit limited here! :)

February 9th, 2009 at 7:55 AM

Thanks Suzeeq!

February 9th, 2009 at 9:25 AM

The video didn’t talk much about the movie but is something! πŸ˜€ I’m still on the excitement,it looks like yesterday isn’t over yet…:D

February 9th, 2009 at 9:51 AM

February 9th, 2009 at 9:56 AM

Good moring everyone!
I hope everyone is nice and rested! I couldn’t stay asleep. I’m too excited about what’s going on today. Yea!! I’m so ready for more juice stuff!!!

February 9th, 2009 at 10:08 AM

I’m adding an update now. Thanks Malene!

February 9th, 2009 at 10:49 AM

wow.. cancelled.. wonder why.. well at least Rupert and Kim are speaking… so they will do a longer session then on that account?

February 9th, 2009 at 10:57 AM

I am so excited. This whole experience has been so…is feelgoodish a word? Anyway, Rupert deserves all of this and I’m glad to be apart of this website. I’ve been around to other Rupert fan sites and none of them have what Ice Cream Man has. It’s more than just giving facts you know? This place has heart and a real community. We are all here supporting that man and it really chokes me up at how many people believe in him. I love it.

February 9th, 2009 at 10:59 AM

I don’t know, but I don’t think so. I guess there have been delays in the morning, maybe the session with the distributors lasted longer than scheduled. So everything was pushed down and some events had to be cancelled.
The stupidest thing is that now neither Jo nor Rupert & Kim will get a chance to rewatch the movie!

February 9th, 2009 at 10:59 AM

Glad you feed that way Jayhost! WHere have you been all this time? πŸ˜€

February 9th, 2009 at 11:00 AM

^ That was so sweet Jay! I feel the same way. ^_^

Oh wow, the director’s session was canceled? Maybe that means Rupes and Kim can have their session extended? I hope so!

February 9th, 2009 at 11:03 AM

Jo was looking forward to seeing the movie again, but the way things are now, it seems unlikely.

February 9th, 2009 at 11:04 AM

oh.. that sucks. big time…

February 9th, 2009 at 11:05 AM

That is too bad. :(

Ivana, are the girls going to use the live ticker again?

February 9th, 2009 at 11:08 AM

I don’t know. Depends on their schedule there, because apparently things change all the time. But they did pledge to make a new post soon!

February 9th, 2009 at 11:13 AM

Sucks that she doesnt get to see the movie again! :(

But maybe the interviews with Rupert and Kim will go longer

February 9th, 2009 at 11:15 AM

I overslept! I don’t think I missed anything, though. Did I?

February 9th, 2009 at 11:16 AM

So the movie has already been shown to those in the business, right?

February 9th, 2009 at 11:18 AM

Yes Suzeeq, the screening for the distributors started at 9:30 CET this morning.
Molly you haven’t missed much, no. Things have only just started to happen!

February 9th, 2009 at 11:20 AM

Katie, there are two videos of Rupert arriving at the airport and leaving his hotel to head to the premiere…. check the Original Cherrybomb Spoiler thread. πŸ˜€

February 9th, 2009 at 11:20 AM

So the directors cancelling can be a good thing. Sales are being made (I hope). πŸ˜‰

February 9th, 2009 at 11:23 AM

I’ve just updated the main page with those videos. :)

February 9th, 2009 at 11:28 AM

lol, I don’t know where I’ve been but I finally feel at home now. Those videos are so great! He seems so nice.

February 9th, 2009 at 11:29 AM

Yeah, I just saw them Ki! πŸ˜€ The first one where he’s signing autographs stalled on me halfway through, so I’m going to try it again.

That was the first thing that came to my mind too when I read that! Yesssss! Get this baby distributed. I need it in my life.

February 9th, 2009 at 11:47 AM

Its sooo good to wake up with all this news!!!
Another great day is running!! Yeah!

February 9th, 2009 at 11:59 AM

@Jayhost: Welcome home! πŸ˜€

I love this place sooooooo much.

Why was the interview with Kim cancelled? Why wasn’t she there? It obviously wasn’t due to ANYONE’S behavior, because Rupert was more than happy to give our Jo a very long and detailed interview.

So what’s the real reason, and not the presumptive lie?

February 9th, 2009 at 12:59 PM

We’ll find out soon!

February 9th, 2009 at 1:20 PM

Ivana, tried to send you the video downloads to staff email and your email but they got kicked back both times for being undeliverable with files are too large. Sorry, maybe somebody more tech savvy then I can make it happen.

February 9th, 2009 at 1:50 PM

Yaay πŸ˜€

February 9th, 2009 at 1:55 PM

Holy liederhausen Batman! I can’t keep up.

February 9th, 2009 at 1:59 PM

Don’t worry Suz, I’ve found a way to snatch them. πŸ˜‰
