January 11th, 2011, 11:19AM– We have some excellent news for you, Rupert Grint fans – and it is something that many of you have been waiting for! Brand new stills AND a new trailer for the film Into the White by Petter Næss.

The new trailer includes exciting and never-before-seen clips from the film, and you will get a much better picture of Rupert‘s role as the fiery red-head, Gunner Robert Smith. The trailer was released by TrustNordisk – and it also features Florian Lukas, Lahclan Nieboer, David Kross and Stig Henrik Hoff. We know that you will love it! :-)

Check it out here!

Also, you can see 16 new and brilliant stills from the film which was released on the Norwegian news website, vg.no! We will have a translation of vg.no’s article as soon as possible.

You can see them all in our gallery by clicking here!

UPDATE: You can now read the translation of the article on VG.no here! You can read a very cool comment from Stig Henrik Hoff about Rupert here:

Rupert was very cool! He was dressed like a teletubby in his pilot uniform – like the rest of us – a little difficulty with body language, perhaps. But, man, he was a pro!

Rupert Grint: ICM Exclusive! Interviews with Petter Næss Part 2!

December 27th, 2011, 10:10AM– As promised, the second and last part of our ICM Exclusive from Stockholm International Film Festival is now ready to be published :-) Hopefully, you all enjoyed your Christmas Holiday and consider this another special gift from us to you.

First, we sat down with the director of Into the White, Petter Næss, after the presentation at Bio Mauritz during the Stockholm International Film Festival. He was gracious enough to spend 15 minutes with us, which wasn’t planned ahead. We talked about the weather conditions, what Næss really thinks about this film, what he promised Rupert Grint when meeting him and the magical place of Grotli.

You can read the entire chat with Petter Næss here.

On the following day, we had arranged to meet up with Petter Næss at Berns Hotel where he was staying during the film festival. He was kind enough to spend an entire hour with us and answered all our questions. He also answered two chosen fan questions – so if you submitted one – check out if you’re the lucky one! :-) A sneak peak of what Petter Næss revealed to us during the interview on his view of the film:

I think it’s quite unexpected and very human actually. A chamber drama I think you call it… but it’s constantly affected by the surroundings, by the nature and the fact that they don’t know where they are. They don’t know if they’ll ever get out of there alive or who’ll get out of there and they’re in no-man’s land.

It’s a long interview, but it is definitely worth a read! A lot of interesting information about the film and of course Rupert Grint. You can read the interview by clicking… here.

You can see the pictures from both the chat and the interview in our gallery here.

If you haven’t read Part 1 of our report – make sure you do. You can find it here

UPDATE: ICM has just been given permission to show another news clip from the set of Into the White. This time, the clip is from the Norwegian channel, TV2. The entire news clip is in Norwegian, but the translation can be found underneath the video:



Stig Henrik Hoff: Nothing in the front, nothing in the back? No?
Voice over: The hair style is all set and the German crew is getting ready. Stig Henrik Hoff plays a German soldier in Petter Næss’ new film, Comrade.
Stig Henrik Hoff: Snow storm, snow storm [distorted voice]
Voice over: These days, they are recreating a 70 year old history on Grotli.
Petter Næss: Comrade is a film about a meeting between two enemies, a British plane and a German plane, three German pilots and two British who physically shoot each other down onto this mountain, here in Grotli, and they land and by chance seek shelter in the same cabin for hunters.
Voice over: With him on his crew, he has international stars such as Rupert Grint, known from Harry Potter, and Florian Lukas. But just as important is the effort from the local people. On record time, they’ve build and freighted scenery onto the mountain.
Man 1: There is such a ‘drive’ in the local community, that goes without saying when there’s a film being made here, then it’s a big thing for everyone who lives here and they think it’s exciting.
Man 2 [carpenter, talks about having made the plane and seeing it on set]
Voice over: Even though the story is from the Second World War, Næss didn’t want to make a typical war film with typical heroes. Comrade is a story about friendship that occurs in order for them to survive and go back to fighting.
Petter Næss: It really is a story about five men on a cabin vacation who tries to remain unfriendly, but gradually is unable to maintain the animosity.
Voice over: And Hoff has no problem setting into the role…
Stig Henrik Hoff: Once when I was driving a car, I met some idiot who drove into my car [he talks about him giving some attitude towards the other driver, and the driver doing the same thing towards him – not clear on the exact words] – and suddenly, when we leave the cars, we’re on the same level.
Voice over: The film will be released in cinemas in February next year.

Thanks to TV2 Norway for lending us the news clip!

ICM Exclusive: Kitty Kratschke talks Rupert Grint’s look in Comrade

October 30th, 2011, 12:25PM– We’ve been quite busy the last days and are happy to show you the new layout of our sub-site Rupert Grint Press Page designed by Flor from Sweet-Revelation.net. Enjoy a look at interviews or articles of the last eleven years.
And what would be a better way to celebrate our new Comrade-themed layout than to share with you guys a brand new ICM-Exclusive!
We had the opportunity to ask Kitty Kratschke, make-up artist of Rupert’s new movie ‘Comrade‘, some questions about her work at the set of Comrade.
We spoke about incalculable weather conditions, hair that has to be curled lots of times the day in the middle of nowhere and how she decided the looks of Rupert Grint, David Kross, Florian Lukas, Lachlan Nieboer and Stig Henrik Hoff.
You’ll find the whole interview on our ICM-Exclusive section on the press page or by just clicking here.
To give you a little glimpse: About Rupert’s curled hair and the painted freckles she said:

“He looked so sweet with them. And I guess that’s the reason he didn’t like it very much and was relieved to wash it off every evening and to just be Rupert again. But he never complained!”

Well, we definitely can’t wait to see sweet Rupert :)

Don’t forget to check our latest news post! You have the opportunity to send us over some questions for Petter Næss, director of Comrade.

UPDATE: And the good things keep coming and coming. The Sun published a great Behind the Scenes clip of Ed Sheerans’ Lego House Video. You’ll find the whole article with two new pics on our press page here.


Thanks to Bree for the tip!

UPDATE 2 : 2 brand new pictures of Rupert and Ed Sheeran in our Gallery here and here. Thanks to Malene for finding the pictures :-)

Rupert Grint: Soundtrack Composer Nils Petter Molvaer talks Comrade!

October 22nd, 2011, 12:24PM– This past week, Rupert Grint was busy at the ADR studios in London recording his voice for his upcoming movie Comrade, along with Florian Lukas and Lachlan Nieboer.

We have recently received word from the team behind the film that the soundtrack for Comrade will be composed by Nils Petter Molvær, who already worked with director Petter Næss in the past.

In a recent article, he revealed this to Dagbladet.no:

“I am in the process of doing the music for “Comrade”, the film which Petter Næss is making for the Norwegian department of Lars von Trier’s Zentropa. To make music for a film is a completely different way of thinking about music than what I normally do, I don’t use any trumpet, but a little guitar and a little piano, and the contrast between the two ways of working is something I like very much.”

You can find the original article in Norwegian here.

Thanks to Malene for the find!

Nils Petter Molvær is currently on tour throughout Europe with Stian Westerhus and Erland Dahlen playing from his new album Baboon Moon, and we had the opportunity to attend last night’s concert in Berlin, and we are very keen to find out more about the soundtrack…

UPDATE In a completely unrelated note, we now have over 1,000 screencaps of the Lego House video for you! Click here.

Rupert Grint: Exclusive – Comrade Gets Norwegian Premiere Date!

September 5th, 2011, 4:34PM– Exclusive news has just been confirmed to us – and we are itching to share it with you guys!

The upcoming film with Rupert Grint, namely Comrade, has finally been given a premiere date for Norway – if everything goes as planned, it will be coming to theatres on February 24, 2012! The confirmation was given to us by the film’s producer herself, Valerie Edwina Saunders. No doubt: this is the news that we’ve all been waiting for!

Even though this date is just for Norway, we already know at least four other countries that will be getting the film distributed as well: Australia, UK, Poland and Spain. It is only a matter of time – and patience – before we will be getting dates for these countries (and more).

There is absolutely no need for it, as we all know what the film is about – but seeing as this is some very exciting news – let’s just recap what the film is really all about. :-) On TrustNordisk‘s own website, the film is described as follows:

Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has madethem enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

Directed by the Norwegian director, Petter Næss, the film’s cast includes a lot of promising names such as Florian Lukas, Lachlan Nieboer, David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff and of course our very own Rupert Grint.
