Happy 45th to Vince Vaughn


45 Years ago today, on March 28th 1970, Vince Vaughn was born in Minneapolis, Minnasota, USA. He was raised in Lake Forest Illinois. He was interested in theater at a very young age and at age 18 he moved to Hollywood, to make it to the big screen.

He made his first (credited) appearance in a film in 1993 in the film Rudy. He became friends with co-star Jon Favreau and ultimately starred in his debut as a screenwriter, Swingers. The film was praised by the critics but wasn't a commercial success.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg saw the film however and offered Vince the part of Nick van Owen in his  Jurassic Park sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park. This time Vince hit it big and was a brand name.

He played a variety of characters over the years, including a couple for/with DreamWorks.

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:'

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.
