Compare The Market Launch Star Wars Campaign #JediMeerkats @comparethemkt


Today I was sent a rather cute gift from the kind folks at CompareTheMarket.Com and the Force is most definitely with them.  Their latest promotion sees the comparison website team up with Lucasfilm and Disney to celebrate 40 years of Star Wars.  The company are once again using their cute meerkats but this time they are from a galaxy far, far away.  Aleksandr is Luke Skywalker and Sergei is Obi-Wan Kenobi.

In the past they have used Aleksandr and Sergei to not only promote their website but movie hits like Frozen and Batman V Superman.  By using their site to see if you can get cheaper car insurance, home insurance or even your gas electric to name a few, you can end up with a gift.  They will send you one of the cute Star Wars meerkars below and as an added bonus you will also get 2 for 1 cinema tickets for a whole year thanks to their Meerkat Movies.

April marks the second anniversary of Meerkat Movies, which helps customers put even more money back in their pockets by rewarding them with 2 for 1 cinema tickets, every Tuesday and Wednesday, for a year.

With the average cinema ticket costing £7.41*, if a customer were to take full advantage of the 2-for-1 off every day for a year, they could save £385.32, effectively watching 52 movies for free. Since launching in April 2015, over 6 million customers have used their Meerkat Movies code to take a friend to the cinema – making a collective saving of over £45m!

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.
