Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promoted at Cannes!


Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promoted at Cannes!

May 18, 2009, 6:36PM–We recently reported that Wild Target starring Rupert Grint, Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt has landed a distribution deal with U.K. exhib chain Vue Entertainment. Now “IOM Today” is reporting that Isle of Man Film representatives have attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote Manx films!

Excerpt: Three films will also be promoted to distributors – Heartless, directed by Philip Radley, and Wild Target, a hitman caper starring Bill Nighy and Helena Bonham Carter – which were both filmed last year.

‘The whole of the film production industry is going through a difficult time so it’s important we have a really active presence.’  It’s a very prestigious event and it has been crucial in establishing and maintaining links with film producers and distributors and helped cement our position as a leading independent film financier in the British Isles and therefore Europe,’ he explained.

The North American Distribution process for Wild Target is being handled by Cinetic Media.

I saw that at work today but I couldn’t comment to them to fix it because I was at work.

The CB Petition link isn’t working.

Also the banner on the top right that Laura made takes you to the petitions as well.

What worked was the petition count.box. Neither the banner nor the petition link work. So it might be a server problem.

I like that The Cannes is getting a double dose of Rupert. Okay, so not officially and only for marketing purposes, but I don’t care. :p

CinemaNX, some promo stills from WT would be quite awesome, yes.
At least some Tony as my early graduation gift (I graduate next week.)

I want more Tony, as you prob noticed.

Rupert as Tony could be on cans of spinach. “See what happens when you eat your spinach?!”

But what if Rupert appeared each time you eat your can of spinach? Would you eat it then? Man I think I want to go buy some now.
