Rupert Grint Press Archives (Rupert Grint Has Filled Out)

Amidst all the feverish talk of elderly adventurers, alien robots and flamboyantly gay Austrians, it’s easy to forget that there’s one very powerful teenage wizard waiting in the wings, ready to stake his claim upon the summer box-office crown. Warner Bros. delivered a powerful reminder this week, releasing a new poster and two new clips for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the eagerly-anticipated sixth chapter of J.K. Rowling’s beloved franchise.

The first clip, a full-length scene dubbed “I’m in love with her,” involves a somewhat loopy Ron Weasley professing his love for Romilda Vane to a decidedly befuddled Harry. (That Rupert Grint has really filled out, hasn’t he? Kid looks like a linebacker – or at least a very fit placekicker.) The second clip is a featurette of new footage mixed with behind-the-scenes interviews. The new poster, meanwhile, boasts the ominous (if not entirely subtle) tagline “Dark Secrets Revealed.”
