October 6, 2010, 5:35 pm — Good news first: Rupert Grint is starting to feel better!
A couple of weeks ago, Rupert mentioned at the private Meet and Greet event for Cherrybomb that he would need to have his tonsils taken out because he repeatedly had tonsillitis. This has happened last week, and Rupert is already at home and is recovering from the surgery.
You may leave your “Get well soon” messages for Rupert in the comments so we can forward them to him.
And while we’re wishing Rupert a speedy recovery, we can all enjoy this new poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and are looking forward to seeing Rupert at the premieres next month!
UPDATE: You can now view the new Ron poster in HQ here. And thanks to SweetDreams we have images from the brand new sticker book! You can view those here!
October 03, 2010, 8:12pm–We have a few gallery updates for you today. First is Rupert Grint in a “Making Of” Cherrybomb feature that appears on the UK DVD. This is particularly nice as you can see very interesting behind-the-scenes moments and an interview with not only Rupert, but his co-stars Robbie Sheehan and Kimberley Nixon. Along with the directors Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, the script writer Daragh Carville, and also with cast and crew members including Conor McNeill. You can view those images here.
In other news, with only 46 days left, thanks to UHP we have a look at the Deathly Hallows sticker book that should be coming out soon. You can view that here.

September 5th, 2010, 5:42am– With Rupert Grint‘s film Cherrybomb now available on DVD in the UK and Germany, we have a great article to share with you about “The Cherrybomb Phenomenon”.
Filmland.dk have just published an article about Rupert Grint, Cherrybomb and the fan campaign behind it, and you should make sure to check it out!
Majbritt not only spoke to Jo about our Cherrybomb campaign and all the fans’ hard work, but also met up with Anna and Karo in London to see Rupert at the Apple Store Q&A two weeks ago. Her article also contains a review of Cherrybomb, and some unpublished details about the campaign.
You can read Filmland’s article here, and find an English translation at the bottom of their page.
Thanks to the lovely Miss Sorensen, and we are looking forward to more Rupert buzz from Denmark!
September 3rd, 2010, 9:18pm–The lovely folks behind UK promotion of Cherrybomb have graciously given us five Cherrybomb DVDs signed by Rupert Grint himself to give away to the fans! We’re very excited to present this opportunity and we wanted to make it quite easy for everyone who wants to enter. All we’re asking is that you e-mail us! That’s it! The first five people who e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org that they want a signed Cherrybomb DVD will receive one! But please remember that the Cherrybomb DVDs are region 1 and the only way to play them outside of the countries who use region 1 (such as the US, we use region 2) is with a region free DVD player or a computer that’s able to play them! This contest is open to everyone, as you may just want a lovely keepsake instead of worrying about playing the DVD!
Also remember, while they’re not signed, we still have several blu-ray and regular Cherrybomb DVDs from Germany to give away, so stay tuned for more of that as well!
UPDATE: Sorry guys, the contest is closed. Thanks to everyone who e-mailed us!
August 26th, 2010, 8:26 pm–It has been an amazing week for Rupert Grint fans as they had the opportunity to meet him in London for a special Q&A session to promote the DVD release of his indie film Cherrybomb! If you missed the news or haven’t checked out the updates head on over to our exclusive coverage page to catch up! Meanwhile staffers Anna and Karo are still on their adventure, so until they make it back with their full report we wanted to share with you some special reports straight from the fans!
First up is the lovely Malene and her sister Majbritt who met up with ICM for both events. She not only took hundreds of great photos but has also sent in her personal thoughts on the entire experience! Malene shares her initial feelings on meeting Rupert, her interactions with him and much more!
When it was my turn, I came towards Rupert, held out my hand to shake his and said hello. The first thing I did was give him his birthday present from me – I wanted to give him something very Danish, and I tried to explain to him that the only thing we Danes do good is alcohol. I had bought him three small bottles of an alcoholic drink called “Gammel Dansk” (ie. Old Danish). His response was: “I love that!” He then signed my Blag magazine (“To Malene, Love Rupert”… aaww). Tom Deacon took the picture of us, and then I decided to be brave – I asked if I could get a hug, and as always Rupert was a complete sweetheart and made my entire day, week, month, year and decade by giving me a hug.
Read Malene’s entire experience on ICM here! And a big thanks to Malene for sending us over hundreds of beautiful photos of Mr. Grint which we have just uploaded in our galleries here. The yummy cup-cakes we gave Rupert for his birthday can be seen directly here!
More reports on the way soon!
