Jurassic Park Fans Buy 9ft Model Dinosaur Leg Used In Spielberg Classic

dinosaur leg jurassic park ebay

Joel Squires, 24, of Rutland Avenue, Southend, UK and George Ross, spent £820 on a dinosaur leg used in the Steven Spielberg classic, Jurassic Park first released in 1993.  They purchased the item from the on-line auction site, Ebay.  Joel Squires said:

“I was searching eBay with a friend as the new Jurassic World came out.  We came across the leg and made a bid, never thinking we would actually get it as we thought it would go for thousands.  There was a £2,000 bid that beat us, but they pulled out and we won. We were so excited.”

He said: “I collected the leg with a friend who’s also a huge fan, from the seller in Norwich.  The journey home was funny as we got stuck in traffic and decided to make bets with families around us to guess what was in our van.  They were shocked when they found out.”

Joel added: “Now it won’t fit in the lounge we haven’t decided yet what we are going to do with it, we might even give it to a museum. I’m sure in years to come it will be worth a lot.”

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.
