Comic Review:Star Wars: Shattered Empire #3


Comic Review: Star Wars: Shattered Empire #3



A small band of Rebels led by Han Solo are secretly infiltrating a secret Imperial base on a snowy planet. They start destroying Walkers, speeder bikes and Stormtroopers with rocket launchers until the base is secure, after the fight has finished typically C-3PO arrives.

Back in Theed, the capital of Naboo Princess Leia, The Queen of Naboo & Shara Bey come to the conclusion that the Imperials are attacking Naboo from space. Our butt kicking trio of heroines decide to jump in some Naboo Starfighters, as seen in Episode One: The Phantom Menace.



Back at the Imperial Base the Rebels have broken into the heart of the complex and C-3PO has found information about The Emperors attack on Naboo from beyond the grave, Han quickly realises that Leia is in serious trouble.
But he need not have worried as the three Naboo Starfighters destroy the ties that are streaking from the belly of a Star Destroyer.  Just when it seems all is lost and the three are overwhelmed Lando Calrissian and a group of Rebels arrive in the nick of time, obviously tipped of by Han, at the battle to assist and destroy the remaining Imperial ships, saving the day in the process!  

I'm really enjoying this series, probably because its our first insight into what happens post Return of the Jedi and is beginning to fill in the gaps.  Its also a great nod to the prequels with the inclusion of Naboo and I thought it was nice that leia has visited her Mothers home planet.  There is a couple of great panels on Naboo when leia enters the ship hangar and feels Darth Maul through the Force, I'm glad the Prequels aren't being ignored, even though Darth Maul is one of the more popular aspects of the Prequels, I'm not sure Jar Jar would be well received by some.


The art is gorgeous throughout, i love the colours of the covers and the Characters are superbly drawn, in some shots leia actually looks like a photo, she is that accurate!

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.
