Our April 2009 calendar has now been uploaded to the Graphics subsite. The theme for this month: Weasley is Our King!
RUPERT GRINT LAUNCHES CLOTHING LINE
WILL YOU HAVE RED ENVY™?
In an unexpected career move, British actor Rupert Grint has decided to add fashion designer to his resume.
After receiving glowing reviews for his unique red carpet style from fashion critics and fans alike, Grint decided it was time to create his own line and allow others to emulate his style. â€œThese are outfits that can be worn by anybody: actors on the red carpet, male teens, and my pet dog. Fangirls can also dress their boyfriends and have their very own Rupert! Maybe we should expand into hair-dye nextâ€¦â€
Beginning in January 2010, the clothing line â€“ aptly titled Red Envy â€“ will be available in select department stores across the UK. These will include Harrods, Selfridges, and Kistna Poos. The line will begin with t-shirts, blazers, and jeans. Due to early demand, there are already plans for expanding with scarves, footwear, and sombreros.
The inspiration behind the name for the line came from Grintâ€™s own envious ginger-haired locks. â€œThis hair got me the part of Ron Weasley,â€ he says. â€œItâ€™s only fair I pay homage. Plus, it just sounds cool.â€
Grint is currently filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and says he hopes to juggle both his career as an actor and fashion designer. â€œIf the Olsen twins can do it, why canâ€™t I?â€
Preview pieces of what the industry can expect have been released. They have already been described as â€œrevolutionaryâ€ and â€œtoo good to be trueâ€ (oh, really?).
PREVIEWS: Blazer | T-Shirt #1 | T-Shirt #2 | Jeans
Another April 1st come and gone...We hope you enjoyed our little prank, which was naturally all meant in good fun! Since Rupert's fashion is something that is discussed so frequently amongst fans, this seemed like the best idea. ;)
Of course, we didn't really mean to deceive anyone with our fake press release and hopefully that was apparent to everyone who read it. Especially once you got to the part about hair dye, sombreros, and those amateur preview designs (thank you, MS Paint!).
As promised, I have the audio from both the directors' introduction to Cherrybomb at last night's UK Premier, and the writer's and directors' Q&A, that followed the screening.
It seemed that most of the cast and crew - apart from the leads - were present in the audience, and the cheering for every name in the credits was loud and prolonged.
Many of you may remember the this exclusive Cherrybomb set report we posted back in February from journalist Andrew Johnston. This week, Mr. Johnston once again wrote a piece about Cherrybomb for the Belfast News Letter! The article is in support of last night's and tomorrow's (now sold out!) screenings of Cherrybomb at the Belfast Film Festival.
Total Film magazine published this month an entire feature on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. There are a few new quotes from Rupert included in the article, as well as information about a more spruced-up Quidditch from the producer and director.
Lauren, Barbs and friends are in Belfast and ready to give you all the goods on mid-week gala premier of Cherrybomb at the Belfast Film Festival today!
As we eagerly await the upcoming showing, Culture Northern Ireland has provided us with an excellent audio interview with Cherrybomb co-director Glenn Leyburn!
