New UK Trailer and Poster for ‘Extraterrestrial’ Starring Freddie Stroma
Posted by Megs

Signature Entertainment have sent over a new UK trailer and poster for Extraterrestrial “a slick teen shocker with out-of-this-world scares and brutal surprises” starring Freddie Stroma. The film will be released in UK cinemas on October 29th, just in time for Halloween! A synopsis of the film may be read below:

Still reeling from her parents divorce, April (Brittany Allen, Defiance, Dead Before Dawn) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma, Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than they ever thought possible.

Rupert Grint Talks ‘It’s Only a Play’ with Broadway Direct
Posted by Megs

In a new interview with Broadway Direct, Rupert Grint and writer Terrance McNally discuss It’s Only a Play. Rupert’s portion of the interview may be read below:

Clad in an eye-popping print suit, his red hair gelled like a rock star’s, Grint makes a vivid comic impression as an arrogant critics’ darling, lamenting with a pout, “I can’t help it — I was born charismatic.”

“When I read the script, I loved the character immediately,” says Grint, who is much more low-key in conversation than “Sir” Frank. “He’s already been knighted and is on top of his game, but he’s sick of being glorified. He’s also a borderline kleptomaniac, bold and ridiculous and kind of crazy, which is really, really fun for me. The play has such a rich variety of characters, all wanting different things from the reviews.”

Soon after accepting the part during a Skype interview with director Jack O’Brien, Grint found himself in rehearsal with five legendary American stage stars. “On the first day, I thought, What have I gotten myself into?” he recalls with a laugh. “I was terrified, but everyone was really welcoming, and the audience response has been amazing.” Recalling a backstage visit with his Harry Potter costar Daniel Radcliffe during Radcliffe’s Broadway run of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Grint says, “Dan was just shaking with excitement, and I felt that I definitely wanted to have a go” at Broadway.

The play is currently in previews and has an opening night of October 9th and will run through January 4th. You can purchase tickets to It’s Only A Play at Telecharge from $72 – $167.

Thanks Rupert-Grint.us!
