The Harry Potter Wizard's Collection box set is released next week (31-discs of goodness!), and a behind-the-scenes clip from the special feautres includes a blooper reel of Rupert Grint having giggle fits on the set. Check it out below or at this link.
Rupert Grint attended the Lodestar Music Festival over the weekend to support his sister and her band, Ghost of Samantha, which you have seen exclusively on our site recently. Ghost of Samantha was one of this year's feature bands.
The photographers from Tazmania Studios were able to get a few pictures of Rupert at the festival signing autographs and having a good time supporting his sister.
We will continue to tweet fan pictures as the come in, but make sure you follow us and stay tuned on here for news.
We have a fantastic new addition to our music section for you today! Musician Rachael Gallman has covered The Ghost of Samantha's new song "Einstein," exclusively for RupertGrint.net! We are honored to share this cover with you today!
Rachael was featured on RupertGrint.net back in May, and you can check out more of her music here!
Also, if you missed it, back in March, we featured Samantha Grint's music with a new page and Q&A in our music section. You can check it out here!
And now, "Einstein," as performed by Rachael! We hope you enjoy it!
Into The White is also now available on DVD and Blu Ray in Norway. Included in the special features is an interview with the director, producer and cast. Check out the front and back cover on this page. Don't forget to get your copy!
As previously reported, Into The White (renamed Cross of Honour in the U.K.) will be released on DVD/Blu-ray in the U.K. on October 1 and you can pre-order here.
We hope you all liked the final design we unveiled on Friday for Rupert's online birthday card. As you may remember, we held a contest for a fan to design Rupert's card and we're happy to say the winner was Cindy H! Here's how she came up with the design:
I got the main idea when I looked at a few photographs of Rupert. On one of them he wore his t-shirt with the big eye (I wanted to use that) and a few others showed him carrying the Olympic torch. That’s when I thought it would be funny to let birthday candles (with big eyes!) use the Olympic torch to light themselves.
Finding a proper background was what took me the longest. After a while I decided that listening to some music might help.
So I turned on my “Ed Sheeran” CD and the moment I heard the first sound, I could see the finished picture right in front of me and knew exactly what I wanted to do! Just like magic!
I spent a lot of time creating all the different candles and somehow connecting them with Rupert.
Cindy sent us the individual images of the candles, which are pretty awesome. See them here.
We also wanted to showcase our runner-up's entry. This sleek design was made by Dionne S!
Thank you to everyone who took part in the birthday card design contest, and also our other two contests! We hope you had a merry Grintmas. :)
We are thrilled today to announce the winners of both of our contests: The 24 Contest and Name That Tune!
Name That Tune
We had a slew of perfect entries who guessed every track right! As such, I used random.org to generate our winner.
Congratulations, Corinne! You have won a brand new iPod case, signed by Rupert Grint himself!
The 24 Contest
This contest proved to be particularly challenging to pick a winner. We received so many great entries! From poems to songs, pin boards, riddles and so much more.
But, alas, only one can win the signed Ron Weasley wand, and that winner is...
Alexandra W. for her drawing of an ice cream van that is equipped with 24 special features! We particularly liked the unicycle holder and spider detector - very useful! (Click image for full size)
As we mentioned, this was a tough choice to make. We've featured some honorable mentions in our gallery.
Thanks so much to everybody who entered our contests! Both winners will be receiving an email from us shortly to confirm their wins.
The Dead Boys are one of a few bands to be synonymous with the rise of the U.S. punk revolution. So, when it was announced that Rupert was to play their lead guitarist, Cheetah Chrome, in a new CBGB biopic, needless to say we were quite excited.
As Rupert's musical tastes are also somewhat partial to the punk genre, a special buzz surrounded the news.
Now, just two months later, filming for his cameo is complete and we've had the privilege of asking (the real!) Cheetah more about the film, his music, and Rupert's role. Read our interview at the link.
