Here's the official press release from RebelForce Radio. It all kicks off Saturday.

Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac launch RebelForce Radio
“A New Source For the Force”

CHICAGO-George Lucas’ galaxy far, far away is about to get a lot closer as Jason Swank and Jimmy “Mac” McInerney (The ForceCast) present REBELFORCE RADIO, a new, independently produced weekly podcast featuring news, reviews, celebrity interviews, contests, and more from the ever expanding Star Wars universe.

Hosted by podcasting veterans Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac (The ForceCast), RebelForce Radio will provide information and entertainment to a growing world-wide audience of Star Wars fans. The podcast will be broadcast LIVE Tuesday nights via the show’s website and released widely on Fridays for on-demand streaming and download. RebelForce Radio will also be heard Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM Central on Chicago’s 1530 WCKG AM.

“We have always prided ourselves on our ability to deliver fun and exciting content to Star Wars fans worldwide. Our production standards of the past will be very obvious as we move forward with RebelForce Radio, as will our passion, which we share with our listeners. It’s not the end of an era, but the beginning. The best is yet to come!,” said Jimmy Mac, the show’s producer and co-host.

RebelForce Radio is an extension of the hosts passion and enthusiasm for the Star Wars franchise. As life-long fans, Swank and Mac have traveled all over the globe, from Tokyo, Japan to Skywalker Ranch itself, to provide the most comprehensive internet coverage of major Star Wars related events! Listeners have enjoyed the podcasters in action during live shows from the floors at Star Wars Celebrations IV-VI and Star Wars Fan Days. Swank and Mac also wrote and produced "The George Lucas Hip-Hop," winner of the 2008 Star Wars Fan Film Awards for Best Animation and Fan's Choice. At Star Wars Celebration V in August 2010, Lucasfilm's Dave Filoni (Supervising Director, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) recognized Jason and Jimmy as the inaugural inductees to his “104th Wolf Pack” organization for their "outstanding fandom and support of Star Wars.” The two were also inducted as “Honorary Friends” of The 501st Legion, a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization known for their charitable work and frequent presence at official Lucasfilm events. Swank and Mac enjoyed similar honors by The Rebel Legion, another well-known Star Wars costuming group, and been profiled in Star Wars Insider Magazine, LA Weekly, and Chicago's Daily Herald, among other publications and websites.

“The unintended consequence of the show has been that we are able to go places that not every fan can, and talk to the people who actually make Star Wars. It challenges us to do the kind of show that we would want to listen to,” said show co-host, Jason Swank.

RebelForce Radio premieres Saturday, January 19 featuring Supervising Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Dave Filoni. A short promo was released earlier this week and debuted at #1 for the TV/Film category in iTunes Podcasts. A video version of the promo is available on the official RebelForce Radio Facebook page, which has already generated over 1,200 “likes” since its launch three days ago.

Listeners will soon be able to stream and/or download RebelForce Radio content on demand for free when the site launches later this month, or by subscribing via iTunes.

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 th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
