Matt Smith and Karen Gillan arrive at Doctor Who screening in vintage DeLorean


He is used to whizzing through time in his trusty blue TARDIS but Doctor Who chose a different time machine on Saturday afternoon.
Actors Matt Smith and Karen Gillan arrived in style at an advanced screening of the new series of Doctor Who, but used another iconic movie vehicle.
The two stars rocked up in a vintage 1981 DeLorean sports car, the very same motor made famous by Marty McFly in Steven Spielberg's Back To The Future saga.

Instead of a standard limousine the pair chose to arrive in the old school car, which has a huge following in the US.
Matt, 29, was dressed as casually as normal in a pair of skinny jeans with a white T-shirt and waistcoat while hiding his eyes behind a pair of aviator sunglasses.
Karen, 24, was much smarter dressed and looked pretty in a strapless polka-dot dress with her red hair flowing down over her shoulders. 
Nice to see you: Matt and Karen made a good impression on their U.S. fans who later tweeted about the event

The special screening, which took place at The Ziegfeld Theatre, was met by a legion of sci-fi fans who screamed loudly when Matt and Karen emerged from the car.
The British stars didn't disappoint either as several enthusiasts took to Twitter to express their excitement after seeing the programme.
One user posted: 'I can't say anything about Doctor Who other than it was awesome'.
The power couple: Matt and Karen were greeted by a large amount of fans who had waited for hours to see them

Fans waited in line for hours to catch a glimpse of Matt and Karen but unfortunately the show's producer Steven Moffat couldn't attend.
He said: 'The #doctorwho team in New York at a screening of Asylum Of The Daleks. Heartbroken to miss it - but be nice to them, Americans!'
Over and out: This series of Doctor Who will be the last for actor Karen Gillan, whose character gets killed off

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.
