Falling Skies, The Final Season


Two months ago today, production was wrapped on the final episode of Falling Skies, the TNT/DreamWorks/Amblin TV-series that will end it's five year run this coming summer.

Not much is known about the final season, other than that it will consist of 10 episodes and that they will air on TNT,somewhere during next Summer.


In an interview, Drew Roy only shared a small teaser: "In this final season we, as most everybody tries to do,wrap up what we have laid down. We are in the process of taking all the little strands, bringing them back together, and tying something up. Hopefully we'll have a decent looking bow at the end."

Filming for this final season hasn't been easy however. In September production was shut down for a short period of time after one of the security guards was killed on set, when one of the trucks, used in the production, went rogue.

One of the last images to be released was this, behind the scenes, shot above where it was hinted that the finale might take place in a winter-surrounding.
Shooting can be exhausting...

And even though all of the cast and crew members knew they were filming the last season, none of the tweets that were released the last few months showed sad people. The general impression is that it is better to end the show where you can finish the story, than let someone pull the plug, during a season.

So only a few months and we will know what will happen to the survivors of Second Mass.


Here's a (very) little tease.

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.
