Rupert Grint: Into the White WORLD PREMIERE!

January 24th, 2011, 8:48AM– Filmfest Oslo has just issued a press release where it is confirmed that the new film with Rupert Grint, Into the White, will have its WORLD PREMIERE in Oslo, Norway on March 4 during the Filmfest Oslo. This date is finally set in stone – so it will just be a matter of time before the film will reach the other countries that have gotten distribution so far.

In the press release, director Petter Næss comments on the world premiere by saying:

“It’s a big thing to be able to close Oslo’s new film festival, and I am looking forward to showing it to the audience at the esteemed Folketeatret. It’s extra special when thinking about the fact that my parents met each other at that spot at the end of the 50s, My dad worked as a set designer, my mother as an actress, and I was probably conceived in the string attic or in the painting hall. It’ll be like coming home.”

Morten Steingrimsen, the program director from Filmfest Oslo, is very excited about the chance to have the world premiere at this particular film festival: “Petter Næss is one of of the most recognised film makers in Norwegian film, and it is with great pleasure that his ‘Into the White’ will close the festival. It is a powerful and grand drama with an impressive cast.”

Previously it became known that another Norwegian film will premiere during the film festival, Kompani Orheim. “As a new festival, we’re proud to be able to offer the audience two of the winter’s great Norwegian films.”, Steingrimsen concludes.

We don’t know whether or not Rupert will be attending the world premiere, but we are currently awaiting reply from his reps. Crossed fingers worldwide. :-) Simply because it’s difficult to get enough of Into the White – let’s take another look at the first trailer from the film:

UPDATE: According to his reps, Rupert will hopefully be able to attend the event in Oslo. :-)

Excited to hear the news it’s going to be out and about. Hopefully the U.S. will pick up for short term later when hearing such good things about it. You know, small art houses and such. Now I’m hoping for more news regarding future projects soon.

Does that mean “Into the White” will not be shown on the Berlinale? Because Berlinale is in February and if the World Premiere is in March….
