Updates on Rupert Grint's "Cherrybomb"

A few updates today, regarding Cherrybomb, the new film starring actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley).

First, thanks to our Order partner we know the film will be screening at the Jameson Dublin Film Festival in Ireland on February 20. While no confirmation yet if Rupert is among the cast scheduled to attend  (filming is due to be underway at that time in London for Deathly Hallows), tickets are now available, additional information can be found via this link.

Second, in the first of what is sure to be a slew of press interviews for the upcoming debut of Cherrybomb at the Berlin Film Festival next month in Germany on the 8th, the staff at ICM let us know they have now posted an interview with Rupert, where he discusses a whole host of topics: his character in Cherrybomb ("Yeah, I do like Malachy...I saw quite a few similarities in him in-so he was fun to play.") on his look in the new film ( "It took a while to get used to the quiff, and my dyed eyebrows and eyelashes") and on some of the mature scenes in the film ("It's the most adult thing I've done and there are some risky things going on-the drug taking and there's a bit of romance-so yeah, it's different; it's good, it's cool.")

Rupert also speaks briefly about the differences creating a small film like Cherrybomb, and working on a large production like the Harry Potter films. Quotage “I really enjoy it because it’s a totally different world; everything is so much smaller,” he notes. “I think we get a bit spoiled on Harry Potter because we have fancy dressing rooms and all. But there is actually a lot more waiting around (on Harry Potter) so I prefer the pace of films like Cherrybomb. On this you do like seven scenes a day and they’re really quick days and it’s exciting-it's good fun!"

Thanks to and to Ivanna!

I cant wait to see this film. It sounds like a film I would find on IFC and would find it interesting with the story line, Hot Co-Stars, Sex, Violence and what maybe a pretty sweet soundtrack. At first I wasn’t feeling the hair but its grown on me.(ish) He looks so diffrent. Somewhere between the age he really is and like a gangster-teenager. Oh well, I don’t know.

With his shirt off or if he is naked…I’m not going to be looking at his hair anyways…


Hey People! Lets not do this. I love Dan and Rupert and they are two diffrent people, In the way they act and how they give interviews. They are both lovely. This post is not about Dan,Emma, Edward Cullen or anyone else. Its about Rupert. Don’t bash anyone.

Rupert’s a bit more forthcoming in this than usual, which is nice, although I find his lack of interview skills kind of charming. I just have this feeling that he doesn’t really like to talk about himself, and prefers to let his acting speak for itself.

Based on what everyone involved in this film has said, Rupert’s going to be fantastic, and I can’t wait to see this in the theater!

Rupert’s the best actor of the trio, I think. Even though the screen writer (is that the word?) seems to really, really hate Ron.

I don’t think I would be able to watch this after seeing him in Potter all these years, it would just be too different. Well, they arent children anymore, are they.

Guess That Book

"It's a disgusting thing to call someone," said Ron, wiping his sweaty brow with a shaking hand. "Dirty blood, see. Common blood. It's ridiculous. Most wizards these days are half-blood anyway. If we hadn't married Muggles we'd've died out."
