New Trailer From Sony Pictures Prompts Close Encounters of the Third Kind Sequel Speculation

close encounters sequel trailer

Sony Pictures Entertainment have caused some stir by posting a mysterious movie trailer on their Youtube channel.  Entitled "This Means Something," Close Encounters of the Third Kind fans will recognise this from the 1977 Steven Spielberg UFO classic where Richard Dreyfuss's character becomes obsessed with Devil's Tower.  The trailer features audio from the air traffic control scene along with the radar sequence (one of my favourite scenes.)  Spliced in between the sequence we get glimpses of iconic scenes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Websites across the Internet are speculating that this trailer could mean we are getting a sequel to Close Encounters, 40 years after it's release.  Would we see Roy Neary return to Earth after boarding the mother-ship at the end of the movie?  More evidence of a sequel is the website you can click on in the description for the video.  It's called "We Are Still Not Alone!"  Clicking on the site will take you to a form you can fill in to keep up to date with updates on UFO sightings.

Before you scream at your screen saying "WE DON'T NEED A SEQUEL!" Let me calm all CE3K fans down by saying this campaign is for a 4K Theatrical re-release in time for the 40th anniversary.  News hit the web yesterday that the UK will get the re-release in September but other countries will have to wait and see.  Question is, what version will we get?  Also, if this does well at the cinema then expect movie businessmen to sit up and take note.  Then we may be talking about a sequel.  Keep watching the sk...screens

Watch the trailer below:

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.
