Telltale's Jurassic Park; a first look #jurassicpark

Game Informer has recently had their first look at Jurassic Park: Episode 1 from Telltale Games. Jurassic Park, created by Michael Crichton and adapted into a screenplay by Stephen Spielberg has had some hit or misses in the gaming industry. All JP games have been shooter games where the player goes out and shoots the dinosaurs. Sure that's a lot of fun but it's not what Jurassic Park was about.
Enter Telltale Games who is going to bring the human element found in the books into their game. Good news is that Universal Studios also wanted this and hasn't licensed the IP since 2003's Operation Genesis. Telltale's Jurassic Park is going to take place after the first Jurassic Park and will address plot points that weren't followed through in the first film and never again in the sequels.
As for characters, according to the article we know that we won't be playing as Dr Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler or Dr Ian Malcolm but we do know that those characters as well as smaller characters like Gerry Harding, Jurassic Park's chief veterinarian will be referenced. As previously mentioned JP is going to use Heavy Rain's mechanics but still working on how it will be used.
Jurassic Park is going to be a five-part downloadable series and will be released onthe PC, Mac and consoles.
You should definitely go check out Game Informer's first look on Jurassic Park from Telltale games. It's a great read and definitely gives you a lot of insight as to what the new Jurassic Park will be like. There are also some screenshots and concept art to gawk at.

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.
