I've Had It With These Chris Pratt Rumours @prattprattpratt

Yet another Chris Pratt Rumour Hits The Web.  Will These Rumours Damage His Reputation?

Chris Pratt it seems is the Internet's choice for generating buzz to websites when it comes to rumours.  In the last year alone we've had Chris Pratt rumoured to be in line for the reboot of Knight Rider.  Then of course we had nearly every website quoting Variety's 'non source' story that the Guardians of the Galaxy star was set to pick up Indiana Jones' whip for Indy V.  What's more is the same site quoted from another source that Spielberg was set to direct and looking forward to directing Pratt.  All garbage of course.  

Now the newest Pratt rumour comes in the form of the recent news that a male version of Ghostbusters will be made along side the recently announced all female cast of Ghostbusters 3.  According to a website (Had enough of linking to these stories so not going to) have reported that Chris Pratt and good friend, Channing Tatum pitched the Ghostbusters 3 idea to Sony Pictures and also four, yes four reboots are in the works of which one will feature Chris Pratt.

I'm happy to get egg on my face if this turns out to be true but until we get any official annoucement I am happy to fold my arms, tap my feet, roll my eyes and say "here we go again."  The web is awash with this Ghostbusters story.  Websites have discovered that an easy way of getting traffic is to keep churning out these non-official stories as they are easy click bate and other websites will link to them.

The frustrating thing is that some of these stories may actually turn out to be true.  Even this very site did the same thing a few months back with our Han Solo to appear in Star Wars Rebels story which came from a very reliable source and the circumstances around the story felt it was good to post.  But with the current trend of churning out news stories from reliable sources it could seem it was a click bate story.

But these constant Chris Pratt rumours for every major franchise has become tiresome.  I have nothing against Chris Pratt.  I am looking forward to seeing him in Jurassic World and his performance in Guardians of the Galaxy was perfect but there is a danger his name will become tiresome with fans if it keeps getting banged around.  The same happened with Benedict Cumberbatch who again seemed to be linked to every major movie and fans became tired of seeing his name popping up even though he is a top actor and popular with fans.  Surely Chris Pratt's agency and management team should quash these rumours as soon as they are released?  Surely that would be the most decent thing to do?

What do you think?  Are you fed up with these non source rumours or does it all add to the build up of the movie?

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.
