“Jurassic Park” sequel talk from “Captain America” director

Joe Johnston was busy promoting his upcoming “Captain America” over the weekend in Los Angeles, though talk eventually drifted around to Johnston’s previous franchise, “Jurassic Park.”
For those who don’t recall, Johnston directed the third installment of the series after Steven Spielberg walked, and he was asked to comment on rumors that a fourth “Park” might be in the works.
“We are in discussions about ‘Jurassic Park 4,’” the director told press in L.A. (via ScreenRant). “The most important thing I can tell you is that it starts a new trilogy that will go off in a different direction — a completely different direction that is very exciting, and different from anything we’ve seen.
“It starts with the history of the first trilogy, but it spins it off in a completely different direction. That’s all I can tell you,” he concluded.
So there’s an idea floating out there … even though novelist Michael Crichton hasn’t penned any additional “Park” stories. As for the direction “Park” will head, one can only speculate. Still, this sounds like it’s very early in the planning stages, as no director or writers officially have been hired. But “Jurassic Park” isn’t dead (or extinct), and it may happen in the future.

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.
