Marvel Star Wars #5 Review

 Marvel Star Wars #5 Review

By Steve Potter



SPOILERS!!! 
Boba fett is alive and kicking.....literally in this instance. Maybe indicating what kathleen kennedy said during the week, that he won't be kicked out of a galaxy far far away anytime soon!  
So we start off with a young Luke Skywalker landing his X-Wing on Tatooine with R2 in tow and looking for 'Bens' house. 

Unbeknown to him a certain Mandalorian Bounty Hunter is there too, looking for him on the orders of Vader! Fett even pays a visit to what looks like the Mos Eisley Cantina, where we see some familiar faces, and Fett finds some info on Luke by employing some pretty harsh methods. 
When they get to the house, Luke and Artoo are attacked by a clan of Tusken Raiders or 'Sand People' if you will.  

Cut to Han and Leia, aboard a stolen Imperial Shuttle being chased by 2 Tie Fighters and having their lovers tiff type back and forth and they fly into dangerous territory, sound familiar? 

Now back to Artoo and Luke at Ben's Place, after Luke chases off the Tuskens he begins to look for clues to learn about being a Jedi and to find answers, but whilst he is searching, someone unexpected turns up!   

Had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this one, the art goes from bad to great from panel to panel, especially for Han and Leia. Fett fans will love Boba's inclusion and while there is some great 'Canon' tie-ins, some are too familiar and have been already done in the films

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.
