July 10, 2009, 4:05 PM–As announced last month, ABC Family is hosting a Harry Potter marathon this weekend, starting tonight. ABC Family will also be airing exclusive featurettes, with never-before-seen footage and cast interviews, from the new film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince throughout the weekend’s 3-day event. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Tom Felton take viewers deeper into the world of the Half-Blood Prince by discussing what Malfoy is really up to in the film, Ron’s new sports adventure and how Hermione is dealing with Ron’s new main squeeze.

UPDATE: Latino Reviews has posted what looks like a full transcript of the New York press conference! As you will see, Dan, Emma, Rupert, Tom and Bonnie were asked pretty much the same ol’ questions, but at least some of their answers were hilarious! Read the entire thing here.

Exclusive: ICM Talks To Jim Broadbent, Helen McCrory and Jason Isaacs!
July 10, 2009, 7:24 AM–While we wait for Tao, Jo and AJ to start posting their Rupert Grint goodies from yesterday’s US premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I have uploaded the third batch of our exclusive interviews from the London red carpet. I talked to Jim Broadbent, who said that filming the poisoning scene with Rupert and Daniel Radcliffe was very difficult because they kept laughing! Helen McCrory and Jason Isaacs revealed that they start shooting the Malfoy Mannor scenes in two weeks, and they’re all super excited! Watch the interviews on our Youtube channel: Jim Broadbent, Helen McCrory, Jason Isaacs.

Also, I have just updated our Half-Blood Prince reviews page, with more and more critics praising Rupert’s performance! We will be adding more reviews as they come, so keep checking this page.

Keep refreshing our latest gallery updates as well: Dunigan has just started adding tons of HQ images from yesterday’s premiere and after-party!

UPDATE: It’s hard to keep up with all the recent premiere clips, but I think this one is new: Total Film has posted their report from the London premiere, and apart from the interviews with the main cast, you can also see a few new short clips from the film, including Ron stretched on the sofa and Luna with her crazy lion hat! Watch it here (but please skip their movie review, it’s as dumb as expected.) Also, listen to the interviews with Rupert and the rest of the cast on Australian Kyle and Jackie show here.

Rolling Stone has posted a new (p)review of Half-Blood Prince, and here’s what they say:

As played with open-faced exuberance by Rupert Grint, the ginger-haired Ron is Harry’s best friend and true confidant. He’s not as expert in wizardry or Quidditch as Harry, which causes some resentment and makes Ron raucous comic relief. The love potion he takes in Half-Blood Prince brings Ron’s immature likability to the fore.

Read it here, and don’t miss Rupert’s latest amazing interview with The Times Online and the gorgeous high-res photos here.

UPDATE: IESB has this new video  interview with Rupert Grint where he talks about his role in Half-Blood Prince. The site also has plenty of behind the scenes footage and we can see a lot of Ron in the clips and clearly hear the dialogues! Watch them over here!

UPDATE 2: TLC had the chance to visit Half-Blood Prince set last year in February and they got to interview Rupert and co-stars. They now have the audio of it over here. The interview is basically the same as the one of Coming Soon that we posted earlier but it doesn’t bother to hear that lovely voice. Enjoy!

Rupert Grint: Rave Reviews Update On Half-Blood Prince!

28km3yo1Rupert Grint: Rave Reviews Update On Half-Blood Prince!July 7, 2009, 12:02am– Film reviews on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are being published on the web, but even more exciting for us are the reports about Rupert Grint’s performance as Ron Weasley. Lets start with this one from HitFix where they declare that Rupert is the “Most Valuable Player” and praise his comedy skills.

“The same is true of Rupert Grint, who has always served as comic relief among the key “Potter” characters, and who comes very close to walking away as MVP (most valuable player) of this film.  He’s grown into a very confident young comic performer, and in scene after scene, he finds the exact right pitch at which to play Ron Weasley.”

We couldn’t agree more! And then we have another review coming from CHUD. Their report is positive for the movie and of course Rupert!

“We’ve seen Ron and Rupert Grint both grow into themselves, and it lends Ron’s Quidditch success much more depth.”

Remember to keep an eye on our Rave Reviews Page, as we will continue adding many more great reviews as they pour in. 😉

UPDATE: Videos continue to pop up from the press conference! You can view a few short but sweet ones from JessieCave.net here, here, here, and here.

UPDATE 2: More Videos from the press conference are now up on Youtube with Rupert and his costars Emma Watson and Jessie Cave talking about some interesting topics to the press. Some are similar to ones already posted but with better sound. Check them out in the second part of this post.

30m4vvqJuly 05, 2009, 4:08pm–Various magazines have come out during 2009 to promote Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that feature Rupert Grint! We have several scans, these scanned exclusively by us (unless otherwise noted). While sadly they contain no new information, they are a blast to look at!

Some old scans that may have been seen before can be viewed here, here and here. And lastly, thanks to The Leaky Cauldron, you can view a Half-Blood Prince spread in National Geographic Kids here.

Also Variety has published their Half-Blood Prince review and has a little remark about Rupert in this one: “Rupert Grint, as Ron, has always looked a tad older than the others and continues to while showing more character.” You can read the review in its entirety here!

You can also view several HQ photos here of Rupert filming in White Hall last week! And don’t forget that we have added screen caps of the Rove interview to our gallery here.
