Barry Sonnenfeld Explains Why Justin Bieber Is an Alien

"This will get me into trouble," Sonnenfeld laughed. "But my theory behind Justin Bieber is that he's from Canada." The director then explained a larger theory behind aliens in Canada, in which an undisclosed alien species was planning to come down and live in the U.S., and therefore sent spies here – but when they tried to transmit the data back to their home planets, "3 percent of it got scrambled in the transmission" so the settlers got the wrong coordinates and ended up in Canada instead. "Canadians are 97 point something percent like Americans," he joked, "except that they're way too nice and if you go into their homes, you'll go, 'Interesting! Fireplace in the bathroom.'" Therefore, he said, certain Canadians are quite possibly aliens.
Anyone who is too good at sports is also a suspect alien. "There was a Chinese seven-foot basketball player, Yao Ming, who is retired now," Sonnenfeld noted. "But how many Chinese people are over seven feet tall?" David Beckham is also an alien "because he's too good of a soccer player to be anything but." And Shaun White is doubly on the Men in Black radar for his red hair ("That gets you halfway there," Sonnenfeld joked) and his boarding skills. "He's just good to be human," Sonnenfeld said. "He's using anti-gravity techniques."

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.
