Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promotion for today’s release!

Rupert Grint: Wild Target Promotion for today’s release! June 18, 2010, 12:04 am– Today, Rupert Grint’s film Wild Target is on general release in the UK! The media for this film continues to pour in, and the excitement is mounting.
Mymovies.net has posted a new clip. In this clip you can see the scene that occurs around that famous burned-out door. The clip shows Victor (Bill Nighy) attempting to coax Rose (Emily Blunt) out of a room from which she is attempting to escape. Tony (Rupert) shows up and they lead Rose down the stairs blindfolded. There’s a serious gap in communication that leads to hilarious results.

The new clip can be viewed here.

Also, there’s a new ten second TV spot advertising for the release of Wild Target that can be viewed here.

Finally, The AP has a new video up with the trailer and some new interviews with Rupert Grint and Bill Nighy here.

Thanks to Laura for the tip!

Bill Nighy also says that Rupert “is a very smart boy”, in the interview as well. Ahhh, we agree, Bill! There are also two screencaps in the interview as well, which you can view in our gallery here and here. Read the interview here. Thanks Laura for the tip!

Rupert Grint: BBC Newsbeat interview for Wild Target!

Rupert Grint: BBC Newsbeat interview for Wild Target!June 15th, 2010, 12:28 pm—While promoting his new film Wild Target, Rupert Grint met up with BBC Newsbeat for an interview.

Rupert talked about filming away from the Harry Potter set:

“It was quite an intimidating prospect to be on another set really, away from a crew that I’d grown up with. To be out of that bubble was quite scary.”

About taking a souvenir from the Harry Potter set, Rupert said

I took the golden egg that was in the fourth film – a dragon egg. Apparently it was worth a few thousand dollars. I put it in a pillowcase, it was with James [and] Oliver, it was a joint effort. But they tracked it down and got it off us. A wand I think would be nice to keep. They don’t really like things going away from the set.”

Rupert also talks about meeting Michelle Obama on set and the Kaiser Chiefs’ small part in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
