November 2nd, 2010, 5:35am– As we wait in anticipation to see Rupert Grint in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, we can’t forget Rupert’s other films.
Thanks to Universal Pictures Australia, we are very happy (and excited!) to announce that Rupert’s Cherrybomb will be released on DVD in Australia on 24th November.
For those Aussies who want to secure their copy early, you can pre-order Cherrybomb from JB HiFi or from Ezy DVD.
While we are still in Australia, a big reminder that Rupert’s comedy, Wild Target will be released nationwide on 11th November. To find your closest cinema, you can go to Hoyts or Event Cinemas for more information.
As Wild Target is a movie for everyone, there is a special Seniors Club Online preview screening on 8th November, so if your grandparents enjoy a good comedy this is the movie for them and there will be refreshments available after the screening.
Stay tuned for something exciting in the next few days!
October 24th, 2010, 9:12pm–Thanks to staffer AJ for scanning the images of Rupert Grint found in the newest issue of Fault Magazine. It took awhile before it was finally released, but the pictures are definitely worth the wait! There are four new full page images including two color shots and two black and white shots.
Rupert’s interview includes talking about Cherrybomb’s petition, Wild Target, what he’d be doing if he wasn’t acting and several other interesting tidbits you may or may not know including Rupert’s favorite actor and what his fault is. The other interview includes fan questions including what he plans to do with his hair, if he’d do an animated film, and what’s it like being a sex symbol. You can view the images and read the interview here.
Don’t forget that if haven’t pre-ordered your tickets for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I you can do so by clicking on the Fandango banner on the left hand side!
UPDATE: Another TV spot has aired and includes several new Ron scenes, including Hermione hitting Ron upon his return! You can view it here. Hopefully we’ll get a better version soon!
October 24th, 2010, 7:37pm–To continue promotion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Rupert Grint has been featured on the cover of Lad Magazine. Rupert has been featured in the magazine on several occasions, but this is the first time he has graced the cover! Rupert is featured on the December 2010 issue with a picture from Blag Magazine which also has another Blag picture for the article. Speaking of the article, it’s really quite a good read! Lad Magazine gushes over Rupert’s body, and Rupert himself laughs it off saying it must be all the ping pong as he’s “quite lazy”. We also learn that Rupert not only owns an ice cream van and a hovercraft, but a VW van! Who knew?
Other parts of the interview talk about the end of Harry Potter, his obsession with ping pong, future film roles (though he only talks about weird roles he’s been offered), and how he believes he’ll always be known as “the ginger one from Harry Potter”.
We couldn’t agree more with Lad Magazine… we’re firmly on the “red(head) team” as well! Click here to view the scans and to read the interview!
Don’t forget you can pre-order your Deathly Hallows through us via Fandango. Just click on the banner on the left hand side!
A big thanks to Hana for the scans!
UPDATE: Rupert also spoke recently to the Scottish Daily Record about being star struck with Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman, weirdness on the set of Driving Lessons and more. Read it here!
October 03, 2010, 8:12pm–We have a few gallery updates for you today. First is Rupert Grint in a “Making Of” Cherrybomb feature that appears on the UK DVD. This is particularly nice as you can see very interesting behind-the-scenes moments and an interview with not only Rupert, but his co-stars Robbie Sheehan and Kimberley Nixon. Along with the directors Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, the script writer Daragh Carville, and also with cast and crew members including Conor McNeill. You can view those images here.
In other news, with only 46 days left, thanks to UHP we have a look at the Deathly Hallows sticker book that should be coming out soon. You can view that here.
September 14th, 2010, 5:01pm–It may have seemed like rave reviews for Rupert Grint‘s non-Potter movies Cherrybomb and Wild Target stopped coming in, but with the diligence of several fans and staffer Anna‘s translation of French reviews for Wild Target, we have several to bring to you – some praising Rupert so much, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear! You can read some below!
Cherrybomb catches the audience as a clever bit of cinema between drama and thriller. Especially with its first-class trio of young actors in which Grint scintillates as a veteran of acting.
A successful change of image.
Conclusion: Well done teen thriller starring grown up Potter-sidekick Grint”
You can read the rest of the Cherrybomb reviews, starting with Attitude Magazine, here at our Rave Reviews site (which recently got its own domain).
“As much as I’m sad to see one of the great franchises, Harry Potter (with the exception of the first two films, which sucked, rot in hell, Chris Columbus) come to a close, it’s really nice to see Rupert Grint free to work on other projects…”
You can read the rest of this Wild Target review and the 6 other ones – starting with Suite 101 – posted here.
In other news, Portrait Magazine has a new poll out listing the most beautiful actors. Rupert is currently very low on the list as we have just learned about it, so please vote for him here. You can also vote for Rupert as the best dressed here with Glamour Magazine!
Thanks Melina, Kathy, Anna and Holly!
