Lucasfilm And Bonnie Burton Go Separate Ways

Bonnie Burton the editor and writer broke the news today that Lucasfilm have laid her off.  I normally have a non-negative feel to this website especially towards anything related to The Bearded Trio such as Lucasfilm and Star Wars but this decision by Lucasfilm just doesn't make sense.  The content and the twitter account were just perfect.  Bonnie's updates were informative and you could tell this was a passionate fan writing to passionate fans.  The Twitter account hasn't been updated since the fifth of May and I feel that this hasn't done any good to their account and reputation.  Why mess with something that isn't broken?  Star Wars on Twitter was so interactive with all its fans.  Considering how big Star Wars is, it still managed to tweet content from us bloggers and fans which would make you feel like you are part of the Star Wars universe.  I hope this aspect will continue but I am really puzzled by Lucasfilms decision.  I have always enjoyed her writing and especially look forward to her column in the SFX magazine every month.  I hope she will find something ultimately as rewarding.

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 th

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. Read the full article here.
