OtherProjectNewsExclusive: First Official Image from The Artist featuring Rupert Grint!April 12th, 2016, 4:35pm– It’s a great day in the Rupert Grint fandom – we finally have our very first official look at Rupert’s upcoming drama Adolf The Artist (the title has apparently changed from The Artist).
The image features Rupert (in a dapper hat) alongside Iwan Rheon (who’s playing Adolf Hitler):

We also have a new and long synopsis to share. Although we don’t hear much about Rupert’s character (August (Gustl) Kubizek) we get a good impression of what to expect:

Adolf Hitler has been portrayed on screen many times – but never like this! Adolf the Artist is a satirical drama starring Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter), telling the little-known tale of a young Adolf, before politics and before war, when all he could dream about was becoming a famous painter.
Historically accurate, this imagining of the young pre-tyrant is comedic in its approach and sees him ata crossroads in his life, when “his struggle” was purely about not being a good enough artist.
In 1907, an 18-year-old Hitler applied to the prestigious Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, certain that his genious would be recognized. It wasn’t. He resolved to re-apply the following year and moved to Vienna, hopeful that living amongst artists would rub off on him. Not one to let himself go, Hitler found the opium-taking, schnapps-swilling, sexual experimentation of his fellow artists somewhat irritating and as he’d not yet developed into a demagogic ranter, no-one listened. They didn’t have to. Yet.
This story follows Adolf in the run-up to retaking the entrance exam, burdened by temper tantrums and an oddball dress sense, and desperately trying to improve as an artist and gain recognition.

We do not yet know when this will air on Sky Arts but hopefully more news will emerge soon. In the meantime, enjoy the new picture (yay finally news).

moonwalkersicon2Rupert Grint Talks To Le Grand Journal!February 18th, 2016, 5:46pm–To promote the upcoming release for Moonwalkers in France (on March 3rd), Rupert Grint was on the show Le Grand Journal. Unfortunately Rupert’s interview is a bit hard to hear because of the translator talking over him, but it’s lovely to see him. His part of the interview starts around the 32 minute mark. And you can view it below:

In the second video, Rupert tries to sing (and is quite good until he starts to laugh and ends up off key!) “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran. As you remember, Rupert starred in the video for Lego House. You can view this video below as well:

Side note: Russia has a tentative release date for Moonwalkers of March 17th and in the Netherlands of March 31st.

Rupert Grint Supports Give Kids The World!

RupertNewsIconRupert Grint Supports Give Kids The World!February 8th, 2016, 3:34 pm– A lovely bit of news has emerged online today – apparently Rupert Grint stopped by a very special place while he was in Florida when he visited the charity Give Kids The World and their amazing village.
This is a 79-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families and it looks like Rupert had an absolutely lovely time with the kids.

Give Kids The World had this to say about Rupert’s visit:

Even Rupert Grint – best known for his role as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter – knew that in order to understand the magic of Give Kids The World Village, he’d have to see it for himself. As an ambassador for Starlight Children’s Foundation, it already meant so much to him knowing that children with life-threatening illnesses were coming to the Village and experiencing The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Universal Orlando Resort). And so, he stopped by. He saw the smiles, the laughter, the piles of ice cream and the beauty of families enjoying much-needed time with one another.

On behalf of all who believe in magic and the happiness that inspires hope, we thank Rupert for sharing his big heart with the Village and its special guests.

EventsNewsIconRupert Grint Attends A Celebration of Harry PotterJanuary 30th, 2016, 1:39am–Rupert Grint arrived in Orlando, FL late last night to attend this weekend’s A Celebration of Harry Potter at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Today he took part in a few outings. First up was a live Periscope/Facebook Q&A where he and fellow HP alum Matthew Lewis answered fan questions. We learned that once in New York for an HP premiere a fan in a wheelchair attached himself to Rupert’s car! We also learned that Rupert’s favorite colors are black and purple. And apparently both Rupert and Matthew know a few random factoids about some famous natives in their homeland. You can watch it on our media site here!

Later in the day Rupert and Matthew joined fellow Harry Potter co-stars Bonnie Wright, Katie Leung, and Evanna Lynch to talk about a great many things to do with their time filming Harry Potter. We also learned that Rupert took the sorting hat quiz on Pottermore and discovered that he is Hufflepuff! Who knew? You can view some MQ images from the event here. And we’ll have HQ images very soon, so stay tuned!

Keep checking back as the celebration is all weekend long and there will be plenty of images (and hopefully other things) of Rupert!
