Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Announced #Lego

It’s been announced that UK based game developers Travellers Tales will be putting their skills into yet another LEGO game, this time around it will be Pirates of the Caribbean getting the block building makeover.

Travellers Tales have already converted some classic film titles into LEGO including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman and Harry Potter so it’s no great surprise to see another successful film franchise given the LEGO overhaul.

The game will be based on the first 3 films and will feature 20 levels and 70 playable characters and will include a two player co-op mode. I’m a big fan of the LEGO franchise and was pleased to see that in LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 a few changes were added to mix things up to stop the LEGO series becoming stale.

It’ll be interesting to see what new features will be added to POTC and will hopefully included some amazing ship battles using the good ol’ LEGO cannons like I had on my pirate island as a kid!

The Lego Pirates of the Caribbean game release date is May 2011 and will be released on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, PSP and DS around the same time that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is released in the cinema.

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 TheIndyExperience.com 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.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. 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.
