Super 8, Battle: Los Angeles, And More To Air Super Bowl Spots

While speculation has grown quite fierce in recent weeks, it appears we finally have a solid idea of what films will be advertised during Super Bowl XLV.  The Hollywood Reporter has released the list of films that viewers can expect to see commercials for both before and during the game.  Hit the jump to see what is in store.

Even with an approximate $3 million price tag per 30 second spot, it appears movie studios are going all out as far as buying up space for some of 2011’s biggest releases.  A number of films will have spots during the game, including a few that we have covered for their viral marketing efforts: Super 8, Limitless, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Cowboys & Aliens, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Rango.

In what many deem is a cost effective decision, The Hollywood Reporter also notes that several films, including Battle: Los Angeles, The Eagle, Kung Fu Panda 2, Priest, and Just Go With It, will be represented during pregame festivities.

As the big game approaches, expect to see more information emerge over what specifically viewers will see in these commercials.  I know I am most excited to finally see some footage from Captain America: The First Avenger. If there’s a particular spot you are looking forward to, let us know what it is in the comments section below.

The Super Bowl will air on Fox on February 6th.

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.…

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.
