 costume fans from the 501st UK Garrison and Rebel Legion Elstree Base caused an out of this galaxy frenzy as they took to the streets of London this morning, popping up at the capital’s commuter hotspots including the Millennium Bridge and Canary Wharf tube station.

The costumed fan groups were en route to a special fan screening of Rogue One:  A: Star Wars Story before the film’s nationwide release.  On their way, they paid homage to the new film by visiting one of the locations used in the movie, the Canary Wharf tube station, which features as a filming backdrop in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Commuters were left surprised and delighted as fans trooped along the station concourse and caught a Jubilee line train.  In addition, they visited the Millennium Bridge.

The first standalone film from the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Gareth Edwards, the UK director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comments: “I’ve always been a huge Star Wars fan and grew up with the original trilogy; to me they’re the ultimate movies.  Stormtroopers are synonymous with the Star Wars franchise and what better way to celebrate the launch of Rogue One than by bringing together fans to celebrate the release of the new film”.
  
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released in cinemas on Thursday 15th December.

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.
