New interview with Rupert Grint!

July 7th, 2011, 9:45 am–A new interview has surfaced online today. Amy Kaufman from Los Angeles Times – HERO COMPLEX had the opportunity to speak with Rupert Grint.


You’ll find the whole interview in our press archive here.


AK: Have you felt pressure about choosing your post-”Potter” roles?
RG: Not so much really. This last movie just came up, and I was quite game to do something different. It’s just a new challenge. It all kind of made sense. … It’s called “Comrade,” and it’s about a true story set in World War II about two English pilots and three German pilots. They both shoot each other down in the middle of Norway, and they find each other in this old cabin thing, and it’s how our relationship with each other changes. We go into survival mode and put the war aside and we become friends, so it’s quite cool. … It was very different — extremely different. We filmed it in Norway on top of a mountain in crazy weather. It was minus-25 with snow everywhere. It was quite extreme. It was a very different filming experience. … It was a true story. These were real people. World War II always felt like quite an interesting part of history.

AK: It sounds heavy, a departure from your more comedic work.
RG: I’m pretty much kind of up for anything really — anything that’s kind of a bit of an interesting character always appeals to me.

We also have a nice comment from heatworld.com about Rupert’s appearance on the red carptet of the Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere yesterday to share with you.

…And then there was lovely, shy Rupert Grint, who was actually quite prompt in his arrival (well done Rupert) – but he still managed to spend almost four hours actually walking the red carpet, talking to fans – impressive by anyone’s standards…

Yeah, that sounds like Rupert how we know and love him :)

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our gallery, we will uploading lots of pictures our staffer Karo and Anna took yesterday through the whole day.

We can now (finally) share our own review of the film with you. Beware that it is filled with some spoilers, although I tried to not mention every detail and every surprising turn. We will also have a less-spoilerful review up tomorrow.
Overall, the film was absolutely amazing and the perfect ending for the series.

New Rupert Grint Comrade Press Conference Video!

April 12th, 2011, 7:32pm–Rupert Grint news has slowed somewhat while the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 DVD and Blu-Ray is just days away (though in some countries it has already been released). And it is now less than a 100 days until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 comes to theaters. However we do have a non-HP treat for you. Just days before he started filming his latest movie Comrade, Rupert and his co-stars took part in a press conference for the movie. A new video surfaced some days ago of an interview with Rupert and his co-star Lachlan Nieboer talking about various things including why they decided to take the role. While the questions might be similar to the other video that was released, this one definitely has different answers. You can watch the interview below:

Also if you haven’t caught it yet, a longer version of the final scene ever filmed for the Harry Potter series was released recently. You can see it on our youtube page here. Warning: Trio tears my cause tears for you!

UPDATE: Petter Naess answers your questions! Check out Zentropa Norway Tumblr for part 1 of the interview. Some great things about Rupert!

Major Updates On Rupert Grint’s Rave Reviews!

January 11th, 2011, 4:30pm–While we’re having down time from Rupert Grint news, we have been focusing on trying to make the website better by bringing everything up-to-date, trying to figure on new features to add, and so on. Today we bring you an update on our Rave Reviews section, a pet project I started some years ago to gather all the amazing reviews Rupert receives for his various film roles. Too often Rupert is overlooked so I wanted to collect all the critic praise, which he receives so much of, to show off what an amazing young actor he is.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Rupert received some of his biggest kudos for his dark turn in the movie. Over the past few days I’ve compiled a list, that will undoubtedly grow when the DVD receives new reviews, of the amazing comments from critics. You can view that list here.

I also added some more Wild Target reviews which you can view here. The new ones start with Film Fracture.

Speaking of Wild Target, a trailer for the DVD has been released and contains some new scenes from the movie for those who may not have seen it yet. You can watch it here. And don’t forget, the film comes to Blu-Ray and DVD on February 8th. You can now purchase the film at Amazon here and here.
