Spain's Innocent Day Sparks Indy V Rumours. Christopher Nolan Attached.

Over in sunny Spain they are celebrating Innocent Day which is the equivalent to April Fool's Day.  Well one of Spain's popular entertainment sites decided to post a fake story that Christopher Nolan is set to take the reigns of the whip bearing hero.  Not only that they decided to push their luck by saying that all stunts will be choreographed by dancer Olga Kuraeva and the condition that Nolan is on board is he gets to choose the title of the movie.  His choices are "Inside Dr. Henry Walton 's Mind" and "The Archaeology Professor Rises."

A few people were convinced on Facebook.  Indiana Jones Spain was happy to step in and put the record straight.

curiously the reaction was mixed to the announcement that Nolan was on board.

VIDEO: Columbo Original TV Spot "Murder By The Book" Directed By Steven Spielberg

The pilot episode of Columbo was directed by Steven Spielberg.  Here's the original TV trailer for the episode originally aired in 1971.

America loves the Mrs. Melville mystery novels penned by the bestselling team of Franklin and Ferris. What America doesn’t know is that James Ferris does all the writing while gregarious Ken Franklin does all the talking ( as in talk shows, personal appearances, books signings ). They have both become rich, but Jim wants to try serious writing on his own. The decision enrages the untalented Ken, who depends on Mrs. Melville to maintain his high style of living. Rather than risk exposure and poverty, Ken resolves to kill his partner and collect on the insurance policy they have on each other. - http://www.columbo-site.freeuk.com/season1.htm

I love this!  A rare news report showing the Palitoy factory from 1982.  Note how the reporter mentions REVENGE of The Sith and the old British way of pronouncing Darth Vader.

Evolution of PC Audio - As Told by Secret of Monkey Island

This short video shows you the progression of sound through the PCs gaming history using the wonderful Monkey Island theme as an example.  From the PC speaker to adlib soundcard to CD quality sound.  I must admit I do like the adlib version.  So retro and brings back good memories.

Phil "I've Just Become Extinct" Tippett Is Jurassic World Bound.

Director of Jurassic World has tweeted the following photograph of Phil Tippett with the words "welcome back, Phil."

So it seems the visual effects supervisor who worked with his go-motion effects is back in the dino world.  He of course is famous for saying "I've just become extinct" after seeing the CGI effects from ILM.  Later Spielberg used the line in the first Jurassic Park movie.  The director also kept Tippett on to supervise the animation of over 50 dinosaurs.  The work earned him an Oscar for his work.

Here's the tweet.


Welcome back, Phil. pic.twitter.com/pnGcKAlfN5
