The Art of Star Wars- An Artistic tour through the Intergalactic world of Star Wars. Opening November 26th at the Silver K Gallery

Star Wars - The Exhibition
Lucas Films has commissioned some of the finest artists and illustrators to recreate those classic scenes and moments that made Star Wars such an internationally acclaimed success. Many of the pieces are hand signed by the artists and a special highlight is a collection of pieces from Ralph McQuarrie, famed artist and illustrator who designed many of the Star Wars characters including Darth Vader and Chewbacca.
In many ways Star Wars kicked off the Pop Culture Phenomenon. Due to its overwhelming success Hollywood adapted to this new ethos of movie making by writing more action packed, special effects movies. Without Star Wars you wouldn’t have Avatar.
Star Wars is the third highest grossing film series in history, behind only Harry Potter and the James Bond Films. As of 2008 it had earned $4.41 billion at the box office. From the first movie’s release on May 25, 1977 to the final film released in 2005, Silver K will have the all your favourite moments on display. With over 150 pieces in the exhibition including such celebrated characters as Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Darth Vader, C-3PO and many, many more it will be an exhibition not to miss.
The show will be an intergalactic journey through the creative world of Star Wars.
The Art of Star Wars opens November 26th.

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.
