Surprise Surprise Netflix Says No To Terra Nova.

As I predicted a while back Netflix has said NO to Terra Nova. It seems every time a show gets cancelled Netflix express an interest in saving the show. It stinks of easy free exposure to me. Well that's that then. Terra Nova is officially extinct

One source has claimed that the talks broke down because international buyers may have been concerned about the lack of mainstream television or cable network support for the show.

Nice excuse.

  1. I am sorry that one of your favorite shows got canceled; I know the ratings were higher than most shows, but the budget required a much higher rating than usual to recoup the advertising costs. Perhaps if FOX would have agreed to a lower budget, it would still be available. I wouldn’t get Netflix for just Terra Nova though, although if I had it on my DVR for VOD, I would probably have given it a better shot. I have the new Hopper from my employer, DISH, now that automatically records the prime time content from the four major networks. That works out great for me because I still have three other tuners to use for my other shows. If you like Terra Nova, do you watch Fringe? That is my favorite show and has a very loyal following.

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.
