Spielberg Mentions Indy V During Recorded Message To Harrison Ford

indiana jones v news

Steven Spielberg has teased us once more with a mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a recorded speech at the BAFTA Los Angeles awards.  The award was being handed out to Harrison Ford for the Albert R Broccoli Britannia award for worldwide contribution to entertainment.  Spielberg directly addressed the actor: “I can’t wait to work with you on Indiana Jones 5. This is not an announcement, just my fervent hope.”

In accepting the Bafta Los Angeles award from Abrams, who appeared in person to pay tribute to the film star, Ford didn't address Spielberg’s call to action. Instead, he kept it humble, by saying he didn’t prepare anything to say (“I could barely get dressed,” he joked), and thanking everyone – including Carrie Fisher and George Lucas – who took part in a touching filmed tribute that preceded his speech.

“I really wanted to be an actor because I could not imagine myself having a real job and I thought it would be nice to live the lives of many other people, to tell stories, to share emotion,” Ford said. “Film has given power, grace, imagination and wisdom to things I have had that opportunity to do. I am very grateful for the life I have had … I’m humbled.”

The awards took place Friday’s 2015 British Academy Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills

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.
