Into the White at Oldenburg Filmfestival: TV Report, Pictures, Possible German Release Date!

September 17th, 2012, 2:23PM– Into the White, starring Rupert Grint as British pilot Robert Smith, has been screened this weekend at the 19th Oldenburg Filmfestival 2012 with actors David Kross and Florian Lukas as well as director Petter Næss present for the German premiere on Saturday.

TV Channel RTL aired their report about the film’s premiere this afternoon along with interview snippets with David Kross and Florian Lukas, which you can view below (the part about Into the White starts at 2:33 into the clip).

David Kross: “It is of course a difficult topic, but it also shows the absurdity of the moments in which the characters end up. And that was definitely a lot of fun.” ” We really wore these suits, these really thick flying suits, and it was just those five people; and we really were in this situation and it was damn cold and windy and bad weather conditions, but that helped to really get into character.”
Florian Lukas: “We had to film everything in chronological order because, over the course of the film, we take apart the hut. It was a bit like small theatre pieces we were playing for those people. And that was a very special way to make a film, which I have never done before.”

At the premiere, the German co-producer stated that a German release is currently scheduled “around the 27th October”. Not even the actors themselves had heard of this, so we will keep you updated on any release information.

Rupert Grint appears on Beat TV!

August 7, 2012, 2:37pm– Rupert Grint has just finished his appearance on Beat TV which aired on ITV2. It was a great show where Rupert displayed some of the many skills we all know and love him for – he danced, played the didgeridoo and even adopted the new nickname “Rup-Dog” which was given to him by the American swimmer and Olympic Gold Medalist Allison Schmitt.

As a special treat, Rupert‘s sister Samantha had the opportunity to play a song on the show and the video featured the entire Grint family looking on proudly. Check out her newly launched website here!
Beat TV also tweeted a family portrait of the Grint family together:

We have added several screenshots from the show in our gallery here, and it is definitely worth a peek if you want to see Rupert dancing and playing the didgeridoo :)

As a last little treat the show mentioned an October 5 release for Into the White in the UK. We are looking into this as we speak, but exciting that it is getting buzz no matter what.

We will add the online version of the episode as soon as it becomes available so stay tuned!

UPDATE: As was announced on the show, Into the White has been renamed for the UK DVD release and is now called Cross of Honour. And you can pre-order the DVD and Blu-ray on Amazon already. Check out the new cover:

UPDATE: We have HQ photos of Rupert from the Stone Roses event which you can view here!

Rupert Grint: Exciting Tidbits from the Set of CBGB!

July 10, 2012, 11:05am– Today we have an exciting array of various fun tidbits to share with you about Rupert Grint and his role as Cheetah Chrome in CBGB. Rupert has been making a strong impression on some of the extras who were lucky enough to win a part in the Rock’n'Roll biopic.
One of the extras, Liz, was nice enough to provide a lot of information regarding Rupert‘s performance as Cheetah on twitter (@mlizmuller). She wrote that:

Today I got to be pushed by Alan Rickman and @AshleyMGreene , got beer spit on me by Justin Bartha, and saw Rupert Grint drop his pants.

As well as:

He rocks out with Justin Bartha in a dark jacket and no shirt, while making hilarious faces! Accent is American

Very exciting!
Rupert‘s co-star Freddy Rodriguez, who plays Idaho in the film, also posted a picture of himself and some of the cast at a restaurant in Savannah and the picture includes Rupert (with a very appropiate t-shirt), Joel David Moore (Joey Ramone) and Justin Bartha (Stiv Bators) among others.

In completely different news, Into the White has been nominated for an Amanda Award for Best Sound Design. The award ceremony will take place on August 17 in correlation with The Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund. Congratulation and good luck to the entire team behind Into the White!

UPDATE: To make this post even more random, Sugarscape has just released their interview with Rupert and Tom Felton from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. The pair is subjected to a difficult Harry Potter quiz and the result can be seen below
