Londoners were left puzzled as two peculiar looking children took to the Underground and popped up at commuter and tourist hotspots across the capital today.

Acting in a particularly peculiar fashion, the figures were soon recognised as being the curious characters from the highly anticipated new Tim Burton film MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, released in cinemas this Thursday.

Many confused and bewildered members of the public took to social media after seeing the twins playfully squabbling over a teddy bear, Oyster cards and even engaging in a very Victorian kickabout in front of Buckingham Palace.

The sightings, at Finsbury Park tube station, Buckingham Palace and Hamley’s Toy Store, were later revealed to be an elaborate stunt to promote the film, which stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Ella Purnell and Samuel L. Jackson.

The costumes worn by the six year-old actors were the actual robes and masks featured in the film.

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.
