SOE and LucasArts Announce Clone Wars Mission on Iceberg Three

Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts today announced Mission on Iceberg Three, the summer series of Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, which connects the storyline between seasons three and four of the hit Cartoon Network television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. SOE worked closely with Dave Filoni, supervising director of the series, to create the exclusive storyline in the Mission on Iceberg Three summer campaign. Mission on Iceberg Three kicks off at the end of season three following the battle at Felucia, where the players are given a dangerous assignment from Plo Koon - save the Calamari system from an impending Separatist attack. With the Calamari system producing vital metal ore resources used to strengthen armor plating, it's up to players to protect the Mon Calamari leader and prevent Separatists from taking control. Only this one planet stands between the Republic base and the Separatist invasion fleet, so players must act fast.
"Our partnership with LucasArts continues to be strong with the team behind The Clone Wars TV series providing us unprecedented access to the season four storyline. To-date, most of our gameplay experience has mirrored the show, and we're excited to provide original storylines and exclusive content to our players and fans of the TV show," said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment. "With the plot carrying on from the television series to the browser, SOE and LucasArts continue to build their reputation as leaders within the entertainment space."
"Season Four is going to drop audiences into the deep end of an important battle, and this is a chance for fans to take part in one of our biggest storylines yet," said Filoni. "These events will ripple throughout the Star Wars galaxy, so they are integral to the trajectory of the series. This is a great way to contribute to the Republic's war effort, and SOE's done a great job of tying our stories together."
Through four new engaging narrative-filled levels, Mission on Iceberg Three allows fans to enhance their Clone Wars experience. Players will duel an iconic adversary using customized Lightsabers, battle through the galaxy in the ultimate Starfighter and defend the citizens of the Mon Calamari system with help from a new Ally in Republic Defender.
Mission on Iceberg Three will be the go-to virtual summer hangout and is the only place where players can stay current on news and events from Star Wars:Clone Wars Adventures and the latest developments in the evolving storyline of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, until the premiere of season four this fall. Explore the online world and save the Republic.

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.
