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.
