Mark Hamill back as The Joker in 'The Last Laugh'

Last year, legendary Star Wars and Batman: The Animated Series actor Mark Hamill announced via his own Twitter account that he was going to retire from the role he made most famous for the latter series, The Joker.

The man who also played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy mentioned to IGN that he was going to bow out of his signature role as The Clown Prince of Crime after finishing voicework for the well-received and stellar videogame by Warner Bros. Interactive and Rocksteady Studio Batman: Arkham City.

The game’s ending was fitting enough to warrant Hamill’s departure from the role, but fate had other plans it seems.

According to Gametrailers, DC Universe Online has announced that their latest expansion pack —aptly titled “The Last Laugh”— will feature Mark Hamill’s official return as The Joker, back to cause those playing the game some fun, misery, and chaos.

In addition to Mr. J coming back, fellow actor Adam Baldwin is stepping up as the Man of Steel himself, Superman, and fellow Batman: The Animated Series alumna and Harley Quinn voice actress Arleen Sorkin, who once again joins “her puddin’” in giving heroes more anarchy and trouble than they could ever imagine.

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.

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.
