Robin Williams - Robin Williams Marries In Front Of Spielberg And Lucas

Robin Williams tied the knot for the third time this weekend, marrying graphic designer Susan Schneider at a ceremony in the Napa Valley town of St. Helena, which saw a celebrity guest list including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Billy Crystal.
Williams' marriage to Schneider comes just over a year after his divorce from second wife Marsha Garces, with whom he'd had two children with, Zelda Rae, aged 21, and 19 year-old Cody Alan - the comedic actor also has a child from his first marriage, 28 year-old Zachary. The UK's Daily Mail reports that Williams and Schneider have had a special bond ever since the latter supported him through heart surgery, with the San Francisco Chronicle reporting that the couple were "thrilled and excited" to be getting married. Details of the ceremony itself remain vague, although the Mail has a picture of the couple looking relaxed and in good spirits as they travelled light for their post-wedding honeymoon.
A mellower imitation of his former self, Robin's latest marriage is unlikely to end in the shame of his first to Valerie Valerdi in which he had allegedly had a fling with cocktail waitress Michelle Tish Carter. To add further insult to injury Carter sued him two years after meeting him in 1984, claiming he'd given her the herpes simplex virus.

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.…

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.

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.
