Sequel To The Last Starfighter In The Works?


Could The Last Starfighter Be Back For More Defending Of The Armada?

Yahoo! took a look back at The Last Starfighter, the cult 1984 movie using cutting edge (for the time) CGI effects.  Starring Catherine Mary Stewart, Lance Guest and Dan O'Herlihy the film was a slow burner back in the 80's, initially not doing that well at the box office.  But Video hire sales and later video and DVD sales has seen the film blossom to become regarded (quite rightly) as a cult classic.

With fans such as Edgar Wright and Steven Spielberg, there have been talk of a reboot or a sequel for some time and screenwriter Jonathan Betuel mentioned just this very thing in the Yahoo! article.

“There are a lot of things going on that will see the light of day,” he said.

Star Wars Anthology, Rogue One screenwriter, Gary Whitta mentions how a sequel or reboot of The Last Starfighter gets mentioned and people think it's a good idea:

“It’s not generally part of the conversation when we talk about the great pop culture movies of the ’80s, but once you bring it up, people perk up, and you realize there is this great undercurrent of fondness and admiration.”

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.
