into-the-white_gerThe film will be released on 31 January 2013, so if you live in Germany, do keep an eye on your cinema’s schedule!

German Distributor Capelight Pictures have updated their site with the trailer and synopsis for the film, which can be seen here, and the 31 January as release date!

Norwegen 1940: Über der rauen Wildnis schießen sich englische und deutsche Kampfpiloten gegenseitig vom Himmel und müssen in den schneebedeckten Bergen notlanden. Auf der Suche nach einem Unterschlupf treffen die beiden Besatzungen zufällig in der gleichen abgelegenen Jagdhütte aufeinander. Die verfeindeten Parteien merken schnell, dass Zusammenhalt Not tut, damit ihnen das schützende Dach nicht über den Köpfen zusammenbricht. Obwohl der Krieg sie zu Widersachern macht, fällt es schwer, die Feindschaft aufrecht zu erhalten, und durch gegenseitige Abhängigkeit reift eine eigentlich undenkbare Freundschaft. Aus Feinden werden Kameraden.

Into the White at Oldenburg Filmfestival: TV Report, Pictures, Possible German Release Date!

September 17th, 2012, 2:23PM– Into the White, starring Rupert Grint as British pilot Robert Smith, has been screened this weekend at the 19th Oldenburg Filmfestival 2012 with actors David Kross and Florian Lukas as well as director Petter Næss present for the German premiere on Saturday.

TV Channel RTL aired their report about the film’s premiere this afternoon along with interview snippets with David Kross and Florian Lukas, which you can view below (the part about Into the White starts at 2:33 into the clip).

David Kross: “It is of course a difficult topic, but it also shows the absurdity of the moments in which the characters end up. And that was definitely a lot of fun.” ” We really wore these suits, these really thick flying suits, and it was just those five people; and we really were in this situation and it was damn cold and windy and bad weather conditions, but that helped to really get into character.”
Florian Lukas: “We had to film everything in chronological order because, over the course of the film, we take apart the hut. It was a bit like small theatre pieces we were playing for those people. And that was a very special way to make a film, which I have never done before.”

At the premiere, the German co-producer stated that a German release is currently scheduled “around the 27th October”. Not even the actors themselves had heard of this, so we will keep you updated on any release information.

Rupert Grint: Into the White Interviews and Reviews!

March 9th, 2012, 7:54AM– Following this weeks promotion, Rupert Grint‘s film Into the White is on general release in Norway today!

We have added new translations of articles added to our Press Site with interviews with Rupert, director Petter Næss and his co-stars Lachlan Nieboer and Stig Henrik Hoff as well as stories about his appearance in Bergen.

“He’s an amazing guy! First of all, he’s a great actor, so bloody prepared. And he knows how to film. Moreover, he’s talented, funny and has a great energy. He was fucking great, just a pleasure to act opposite”, Stig Henrik Hoff (47) says

ZentropaNorway have uploaded a video of their interview with Rupert to youtube:

And finally, we also have the first reviews up, and they are full of praise for Mr. Grint and his co-stars. You can find the Rupert-related parts in our Reviews section, which also holds links to the complete original reviews in Norwegian, as well as the full translations in our Press Archive. Click here!

“All the characters are carefully nuanced and played with warmth and depth by the talented actors. Rupert Grint stands out with his rebellious and cheeky Liverpool gunner, together with our own Stig Henrik Hoff as the little talkative German, Strunk. The relationship between the two is perhaps the best thing about the entire film.”
