Twitter Gives Birth To Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Rumors

Today’s flavor of Twitter rumor was reported by GameInformer and involves the possibility of developer Spark Unlimited working on Star Wars: Battlefront 3. However, while gamers have been pining for a new Star Wars: Battlefront ever since the last one was released in 2005, the force of credibility isn’t strong with this one.
Any reason for suspecting something is twofold. First, a listing appeared in the job section of Spark Unlimited’s website stating, “We are in production on an unannounced high-profile, popular game sequel for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC release.” And then there’s the fact that when asked on Twitter about a possible Star Wars: Battlefront 3 title, according to Gameinformer, Spark is referring those inquiries to Lucas Arts as opposed to denying them.
Of course, if a Battlefront 3 title was ever to enter prodcution, someone new would have to be developing it, as the series’ original developer, Pandemic Studios, closed its doors in 2009. That said, Spark Unlimited’s resume is still rather short, having only devleoped Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, and Legendary. Such high-profile involvement with what would be new territory for them would definitely come as a surprise.
In any case, we’re approaching the best time for new game announcements as companies gear up for the next holiday season, so don’t expect this to be the last instance of speculation from Twitter or any other source.

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.…

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.
