Rupert Grint: Into the White WORLD PREMIERE!

January 24th, 2011, 8:48AM– Filmfest Oslo has just issued a press release where it is confirmed that the new film with Rupert Grint, Into the White, will have its WORLD PREMIERE in Oslo, Norway on March 4 during the Filmfest Oslo. This date is finally set in stone – so it will just be a matter of time before the film will reach the other countries that have gotten distribution so far.

In the press release, director Petter Næss comments on the world premiere by saying:

“It’s a big thing to be able to close Oslo’s new film festival, and I am looking forward to showing it to the audience at the esteemed Folketeatret. It’s extra special when thinking about the fact that my parents met each other at that spot at the end of the 50s, My dad worked as a set designer, my mother as an actress, and I was probably conceived in the string attic or in the painting hall. It’ll be like coming home.”

Morten Steingrimsen, the program director from Filmfest Oslo, is very excited about the chance to have the world premiere at this particular film festival: “Petter Næss is one of of the most recognised film makers in Norwegian film, and it is with great pleasure that his ‘Into the White’ will close the festival. It is a powerful and grand drama with an impressive cast.”

Previously it became known that another Norwegian film will premiere during the film festival, Kompani Orheim. “As a new festival, we’re proud to be able to offer the audience two of the winter’s great Norwegian films.”, Steingrimsen concludes.

We don’t know whether or not Rupert will be attending the world premiere, but we are currently awaiting reply from his reps. Crossed fingers worldwide. :-) Simply because it’s difficult to get enough of Into the White – let’s take another look at the first trailer from the film:

UPDATE: According to his reps, Rupert will hopefully be able to attend the event in Oslo. :-)

The Norwegian actor Stig Henrik Hoff was gracious enough to sit down and answer some questions from the ICM staff. He is known to be a man with a playful and light-hearted personality, and this is definitely the Stig who we heard from last night. You can read all about his experience filming Into the White in Norway’s extreme weather conditions, what he thought of Rupert Grint‘s skiing abilities and how he felt about the character Strunk. Here’s a sneak peek of what mr. Hoff had to say about Rupert:

We had a great time shooting, a lot of fun and laughs, and Rupert impressed me! Young guy, dead on, always dead on, well prepared and funny, generous, without any moviestar-shit, such a likeable person.
