April 5th, 2013, 9:21pm–For those in the US who may not be able to see Rupert Grint‘s Into The White in theaters due to its very limited run can rest easy, the Blu-Ray is slated for June 4th, 2013 according to Blu-Ray.com. However, there is more! According to High Def Digest the US blu-ray will have some very promising features: A Making of Into The White, AVX TV’s A Look At: Into The White, and the original theatrical trailer. You can pre-order this at Amazon.com. (Note: Amazon has the the release date listed for June 25th, but because June 4th is listed by two separate but respectable places, we believe this date over Amazon’s.) But fret not, those who do not own a blu-ray player can still enjoy it. Amazon has the DVD available for pre-order here.
And that’s not all! For those in and around the Columbus, OH area will get their chance to see the film on the big screen on April 12th at Gateway Film Center 8. When more locations and dates are announced we will be sure to pass them along. Stay tuned!
In other news, Vulture.com has a piece out about the 2013-2014 pilot season’s most promising and Super Clyde is the #1 show listed! You can read all about the pilots they think highly of here and this is the excerpt about Super Clyde:
This was my favorite comedy and maybe my favorite script this year, period. An awkward orphan fast-food employee (Grint) suddenly comes into a huge amount of money and decides to spend it on becoming a secret superhero. It’s sweet and earnest — very Raising Hope — and silly and surprising. It might be a little too tender for this harsh world, but maybe some Harry Potter magic can get people to tune in.
Let’s hope that everyone in charge of deciding whether Super Clyde gets picked up agrees!
And finally, The Hollywood Reporter is releasing exclusive posters from CBGB. So far Malin Ackerman as Debbie Harry and Joel David Moore as Johnny Ramone have been released. They will be released at least three new posters (one for each day). We’re not sure if Rupert will be among them, but keep your eye out and we’ll post about it asap!

UPDATE: Some more buzz about Super Clyde via Deadline.
Now we have just received word that Rupert will once again grace the shiny pages in BLAG’s 20th Anniversary Edition! This volume (Vol. 3 Nø 3) has Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace on the front cover, but more importantly it will include a brand new Q&A with Rupert in which he even mentions the Birthday Project we did called “Blag Around the World”. Rupert has once before been asked if he could recall a special birthday gift he had received from his fans and his answer was:
I did a cover shoot for BLAG Magazine and my fans sent me a book filled with pictures of them taken with the magazine from all over the world. It was very cool… some were walking the wall of China; others in New York and even someone crossing a bridge over a river with a 100ft drop: all the while with my issue of BLAG.
What is even more special about this 20th Anniversary Edition of BLAG is the fact that YOU can be apart of it as well – you can read all about how you can take part in this amazing opportunity, and also order your copy of BLAG featuring Rupert once again, right here!
“But the end of Potter saw him finally take a long break. “I have not been in too much of a rush to do anything really,” he says. “It has been nice to catch up on a few things and have a bit of freedom. I did a film earlier this year called Comrade, a Second World War movie set in Norway – that was pretty cool. Apart from that I have just been relaxing.”
He also discussed that he’s ready to get back to ‘work’:
After his break, and this final interview ahead of the release of the last Potter DVD, Rupert is ready to look for work.
So what about the biggest role of all, James Bond?
“A ginger Bond? Why not? That would be cool. But I can’t really see it myself.”
Rupert also discusses buying his own home, different items he’s purchased, and of course his own private love life. You can read the entire interview in our press archive here.
Note: It’s possible the interview took place before Comrade was changed to Into The White and that’s why he referred to the old title.
