The upcoming film with Rupert Grint, namely Comrade, has finally been given a premiere date for Norway – if everything goes as planned, it will be coming to theatres on February 24, 2012! The confirmation was given to us by the film’s producer herself, Valerie Edwina Saunders. No doubt: this is the news that we’ve all been waiting for!
Even though this date is just for Norway, we already know at least four other countries that will be getting the film distributed as well: Australia, UK, Poland and Spain. It is only a matter of time – and patience – before we will be getting dates for these countries (and more).
There is absolutely no need for it, as we all know what the film is about – but seeing as this is some very exciting news – let’s just recap what the film is really all about. 🙂 On TrustNordisk‘s own website, the film is described as follows:
Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has madethem enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.
Directed by the Norwegian director, Petter Næss, the film’s cast includes a lot of promising names such as Florian Lukas, Lachlan Nieboer, David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff and of course our very own Rupert Grint.
