April 8th 2013, 4:26pm– New, amazing images of Rupert Grint from the recent Self Assignment Photoshoot by Fabrizio Maltese!
The Photoshoot took place as part of the Press Call on behalf of the screenings of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the Berlinale Film Festival back in February, minutes before our own interview with Rupert.
You can view these awesome images here in our Gallery in MQ, and we are currently working on HQ images and getting the MQ ones untaggedUPDATE: MQ photos are now untagged!
Also, the CBGB Facebook page has published another poster, similar to a recent image, which you can see here. And check out the previous post to see Rupert as Cheetah Chrome in action!
March 10, 2013, 6:25 am– We only have one more Rupert Grint goodie from Berlinale to share with all you wonderful fans, and this time we are auctioning off a very special Berlinale 2013 poster signed by Rupert Grint, Fredrik Bond and Til Schweiger.
The poster was autographed by the guys the day of our exclusive interview which occured the day after the International Premiere of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the Berlin International Film Festival (Sunday, February 10th 2013).
We are auctioning off this amazing poster because Rupert made a very special and personal request – he wanted this poster to raise money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital where a friend of his family is undergoing chemotherapy. Of course we wanted to make this wish come true, and now we just need YOU to start bidding for the poster on our special ebay page. The auction will go on for 10 days and all the proceeds will go to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. This is open for everyone everywhere in the world.
All you need to do is go HERE and bid the amount you’d be willing to give for the poster. Every little bit helps – Birmingham Children’s Hospital writes:
Whether its £5 to fund some crayons and colouring books whilst waiting for test results, or £42,000 for a life saving machine that operates as a mechanical heart. Charitable donations are key to making us what we are: a centre of paediatric excellence that the whole country depends on.
February 24th, 2013, 12:46am–During his time in Berlinale, Rupert Grint did quite a few interviews to promote The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. Today one of those nice interviews with Rupert has popped up via Entertainment Daily News. In it Rupert talks about why he chose to do the role, working with Shia Lebeouf, and seeing more of him in the role. You can view it all here. (Or watch below!) Thanks to the anonymous tip! (Rupert’s part starts around 1:20 mark and ends around 3:03.)
And if you haven’t seen it already, new news about Super Clyde has hit the internet. Check out the story below for more. We will probably get more casting news in the coming weeks and hopefully know by May on whether CBS picks up the pilot. Fingers crossed!
February 18th, 2013, 4:14pm–While news is winding down about Rupert Grint being cast in Super Clyde and everyone has had a chance to catch our exclusive interview with him, we now bring you even more images from Berlinale where Rupert promoted The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. We have more from the photocall here, the press conference here and the premiere here. We will still be bringing you more, so stay tuned for that!
We also have a lovely newspaper article from the German IN Magazine which features a snippet about Rupert calling co-star Til Schweiger‘s daughter, Emma. Here is the translation:
“Also Til Schweiger (49) is taking his spot between the Hollywood-Stars this time. He represents the movie “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman” with his co-stars Shia LaBeouf (26) and Ron Weasley – damn, I meant Rupert Grint (24). By the way, he has a big worshipper at the Schweiger-Family. Til:s little daughter Emma (10). “Rupert spoke some greetings into my iPhone, she was totally flashed”, told the daddy. Maybe the Gingerhead could invite Emma into Diagon Alley sometime.”
You can view the scan here. (The caption next to Rupert’s pic says: “Sorry Rupert Grint, even though you did a great job in the new movie, you’re still Harry Potter’s friend Ron in our heads.”
February 15, 2013, 4:14 pm– This past weekend, Rupert Grint attended the International Premiere of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at Berlin Film Festival and not only walked the Red Carpet, but also participated in a Press Call on Sunday. Four of our staffers had the chance to interview him, and Rupert answered our questions about his character Karl and the film, and once again participated in a photo interview like last year in Oslo.
“And my character was quite a challenge, I suppose, although he is only a tiny part of the film, the character kept changing.
Originally, in the script, I was German and I got my head around playing a German person, but in the end, there were so many accents in the film that they thought it would be too much, so they went away from that version.
I was a virgin at one point, which would have been another weird direction there. So it was a lot of work figuring out who I was.”
You can read the full interviewhere, and the photo interviewhere. (Note that the last question was four days before the news of Super Clyde…)
We know that you not only like to read his interviews, so you can find HQ pictures from our interview in our Gallery, and an audio on our youtube channel, or enjoy the video below:
Since all four of us had the opportunity to watch the movie (twice), we also have finished our review chat – although we must give out a warning that we cover adult themes as is the case in the film. If you’re of age, you may read it here. In case you have any questions about the film or our review, simply use the comments to ask.
And finally, Jessica, the lucky winner of our competition for two tickets to the premiere, has also written up a short report about her experience, which you can read here!
We would like to thank Rupert for taking the time and for giving us such a great time in Berlin, and to his team, esp. “Bonnie” and “Hamish” for making this happen!
