INDEPENDENCE DAY ALIEN BEAMS INTO LONDON STATION

id4 alien london

A lifelike alien beamed into Euston Train Station today, amazing bleary-eyed  rail passengers and giving their phones a resurgence in the process.

Encased in a giant pulsing laboratory cylinder, instantly recognisable to fans of Independence Day, the living, breathing specimen brings to life one of the aliens from the hotly anticipated sequel INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE, in cinemas 23rd June.

In partnership between Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation and Virgin Trains, which is launching its brand new, complimentary App based entertainment service BEAM, the PHONE RESURGENCE experiential gives visitors of Euston the chance to charge their phones, apparently channelling energy from the alien specimen, whilst they view exclusive content from the new film and find out How to BEAM.

The installation, which shall remain live for a week in the main concourse, was unveiled by Alex Zane and a professor apparently from Virgin Trains' secret extraterrestrial division. It suggests that in the 20 years since the events of Independence Day in 1996, Virgin Trains have exploited the advanced alien technology to improve their service.

Virgin Trains’ entertainment service BEAM is jam-packed with hundreds of hours of blockbuster movies, including the original Independence Day, as well as TV, giant reads and fun games, available on-board through the BEAM app.

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE IS RELEASED BY TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX ON 23rd June 2016

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.
