Fanboys Heads To The UK - Best Movie Release This Year. Watch Out Avatar!

It is one of the best movies I've seen in years.  If you are a fan of Star Wars then this movie is a must.  Even if you're not then you are still going to enjoy this masterpiece, I mean come on its got The Shat in it.  Fortunately he doesn't sing.  You must buy this movie. Wait! Lets see if this works....ahem!...You will buy this movie...damn!  My force powers need some work.  There are loads of cameos, the script is sharp and the story will keep you gripped to the end.  Heres what its all about...

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... well, 1976 in California, there was a God, and that God was named George Lucas, and he created the greatest and most remarkable movie saga ever known to Man, Droid or Wookie...Star Wars. Lightspeed ahead to 1998 and four Star Wars fans hit the road in search of the impossible in the hilarious road trip comedy FANBOYS, released on Blu-ray and DVD on 4 October from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

Directed by Kyle Newman and produced by Kevin Spacey, this laugh-out-loud comedy features a fantastic cast including Sam Huntington (Superman Returns), Seth Rogen (Knocked Up, Step Brothers) Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Couples Retreat) Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, She’s Out of My League), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine), Danny Trejo (Anchorman, The Devil’s Rejects) and Dan Fogler (Love Happens, Taking Woodstock).

The film is also bursting with fanboy pleasing cameos Kevin Smith (Clerks), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars IV-VI), Ray Park (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, GI Joe), Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down, Pineapple Express), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine) and William Shatner (Star Trek).

Spurred by their impatience and an undying loyalty to their cause, five former high school friends reunite to undertake the road trip of their fan-tasies. Travelling west, across America to visit their Mecca – George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch. The plan is to break in, steal the first cut of The Phantom Menace six months before its worldwide release and stake their claim to be the first fanboys in history to watch it. They will need more than the force to be with them to overcome bizarre bikers, a crazy pimp and a deranged crew of Trekkies along their quest to hilarious consequences.

Released also on Blu-ray to extend the FANBOY experience armed with special features including a director’s commentary, deleted scenes and many more. The DVD and Blu-ray will also be available in a Limited Edition collector’s case, for the ultimate fanboy!

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
