Directed by Petter Næss
Premiere: 3 March 2012, Norway
For the last decade, Ron Weasley (‘Harry Potter’, actor Rupert Grint) has battled some of the most dangerous and deadly magic menaces the movie world has to offer, from evil wizards to soul-sucking Dementors to giant forest spiders. But those dangers pale in comparison to his latest foe: Nazis.
No, this isn’t some madcap fanfic or the untold story of Dumbledore’s battle against Grindlewald (we wish) — it’s the first trailer for Rupert Grint’s new World War II drama ‘Into the White.’ Looks like someone has officially graduated from Hogwarts.
Not that there was ever really any question about Grint’s ability to put the iconic role of Ron Weasley behind him; after all, he’s been making indie films like ‘Driving Lessons,’ ‘Cherrybomb’ and ‘Wild Target’ for years in an effort to expand his acting horizons. And they don’t get much more expansive than ‘Into the White,’ which tells the story of a group of British and German pilots who shoot each other down over Norway and are then forced into an uneasy truce in order to survive the arctic conditions.
