A Brand New Into The White Clip Featuring Rupert Grint!

February 27th, 2012, 11:23am–Today Zentropa Norway has released another Into The White Clip featuring Rupert Grint and David Kross (as well as their co-stars). In this clip the men are sitting down to eat. David Kross’ Schwartz asks if it’s good which prompts Rupert’s Smith to insult the meal. This is our first glimpse into the antagonizing relationship that these two characters seem to have in the movie. So without further ado, you can watch the clip here:

or here!

Don’t forget that Into The White will be premiering March 4th which is just six days away. Tickets for the event, which Rupert will be attending, can be found by clicking the link below our countdown box on the left hand side of the site. ICM will be in attendance!

UPDATE: Two new articles about the upcoming premiere in Oslo have surfaced on the internet – and thanks to Malene, we now have translations of both for you 🙂 Petter Næss talks about how impressed he is with the work of the German costume designers:

“I’ve never really been a fan of war films. On the other hand, the events of the war offer an inexhaustible source for great stories about conflict, animosity, friendship and powerful destinies, Næss says, while adding that he’s impressed by how the German costume designers have worked to create a proper image of the time.

– It’s easy to lose the illusion if something isn’t right. We’ve filmed in reasonably controllable surroundings, with mountains and a cabin, and there has just been minor digital post-production.”

Check them out here and here – but beware, the last article called “A universal story” contains a major SPOILER ALERT – so if you don’t want to know… save it for later!

And speaking of the costume designers – don’t forget to read our amazing interview with the costume designer Steffi Bruhn. Click here for amazing pictures and stories from the set!

Rupert Grint: Costume designer Steffi Bruhn talks Into The White!

Rupert Grint: Costume designer Steffi Bruhn talks Into The White!February 26th, 2012, 9:37AM– Back in december ICM sat down with Steffi Bruhn, costume designer of Rupert Grint’s upcoming movie “Into The White“. We talked for almost two hours at a nice café in Berlin at the exact same table where she met Petter Næss for the first time and decided that she just “had to get” this job.

We got a great look behind the scenes and she gave us an idea about her work before and while shooting a movie. You will find out more about the “Teletubby style”, how she managed to give every character his personal feature while wearing the uniforms and that we almost got to see Rupert wearing a sailor suit. We also proudly present to you some exclusive pictures showing the original Horst Shopis and the development of the costumes.

Talking about Rupert, she only had the nicest things to say about our favourite guy and we got an idea about his fittings and his work on and off set. To give you a first glimpse:

Rupert is TERRIFIC! I’ve never met an actor like him before. Unbelievable! He is a professional man in the most positive way. He has discipline, such a natural discipline. He dressed up in his costume every morning and in the evening undressed exactly the same. Nevertheless if outside or inside, hot or cold, he paid perfectly attention to his precious original Costume-Details.

Curious to read more? You definitely should be. You’ll find the whole interview at our press page here.

Again a big thank you to Steffi for taking your time! It was a pleasure.
And a massive thank you to Melina for helping with the translation and editing the interview.

ICM Exclusive: Interview with Rupert Grint’s “Into The White” costar David Kross!

ICM Exclusive: Interview with Rupert Grint’s “Into The White” costar David Kross!February 19th, 2012, 12:44PM– A couple of days ago Rupert Grint’s costar in his upcoming movie “Into The White” the German actor David Kross took his time to do a little chat with us and we are happy to publish it today.


David Kross is best known for his performances in the Oscar-winning movie “The Reader” or in Steven Spielbergs current movie “War Horse
We spoke with David about his character Josef Schwarz, the benefits of working with an international cast and crew and how much he was looking forward to working with Petter Næss.


To give you a first glimpse, David speaking about Rupert’s acting-skills:

Rupert is a very professional and good actor. It was amazing to see, how he is just there the moment the camera switches on. He is in his role immediately, but also has a lot of fun between the scenes, laughs much. He doesn’t take things too serious, but in front of the camera, bang, he is there. That was impressive.

You’ll find the whole interview at our press page here. Thanks a lot David for taking your time.

And thanks to Melina for helping with the translation.
