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.
December 26th, 2010, 5:52pm– To celebrate Christmas, IGN have published an interview with Rupert Grint and his Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe about their favourite Christmas-themed filmes. The interview took place during the junket for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 in November.
Rupert himself names two classics as his, namely The Great Escape and the Star Wars series.
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this year and that you guys received loads of nice presents!
And attention German fans! The German DVD for Wild Target is available for sale on 20 January, BUT you can already RENT it from 28 December!
UPDATE: TheFreeLibrary published this article, in which Rupert talked about his best, worst and dream Christmas presents:
- A Japanese loo seat – for the novelty gadget factor. (best present)
- Raw fish Sellotaped to a Rubik’s Cube from my brother; it was ridiculous. (worst present)
- A trip to the moon. (dream present)
December 21st, 2010, 6:34pm–After months of waiting, especially for those of us unable to see it in theaters in its limited release, Rupert Grint‘s Wild Target will be released on DVD and blu-ray in the US on February 8th! No word yet on art work but the feature listed so far is called “On Target With Emily Blunt” on both versions (so no pesky “I need to buy both to get this and that”). The list price for the blu-ray is $29.99 and the list price for the DVD is $22.98. Don’t freak out over the price though, this is just the studio’s list price and it most likely will be much cheaper for both versions.
Despite the release date just being announced, amazon and other retailers aren’t currently taking pre-orders. We will let you know when it does become available. The DVD on amazon is listed here and the blu-ray is listed here.
UPDATE: Artwork for the film has been released. You may view it in our gallery here.
