Steven Spielberg stays behind the camera as he films family boat trip on holiday


As one of the most successful directors in the history of film, he is used to being behind the camera.
However, Steven Spielberg couldn't stop from using his expertise with a lens while on holiday with his family in Capri, Italy.
The 65-year-old was spotted carrying around his handy-cam as he took in the local attractions on the idyllic island, yesterday afternoon.

The Jaws director took charge of capturing images of his family as they spent the day wandering around in the sun before jumping on a boat.
Joined by his wife Kate Capshaw, the legendary film maker continued to film the area as he was ferried across the water in a small boat.
Steven is clearly not a sun worshiper and made sure he covered up almost completely in the scorching temperatures.

He wore a pair of cream shorts with a burgundy T-shirt and an unbuttoned top and hid his face underneath a straw trilby.
The father-of-six may have been doing some reconnaissance on the area for one of his many upcoming movies.
As well as Indiana Jones 5, Jurassic Park IV, and Robopocalypse, the director is currently wrapping up production on biopic Lincoln.

The highly anticipated political movie stars Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States, as he guides the North to victory during the Civil War.
In order to avoid influencing the US presidential election, the film will be released on 9 November 2012, a couple months later than originally planned.
Lincoln also stars heavyweight names Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones and James Spader.

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.

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.…

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.
