COMPETITION - Win The Paul Shipper Cover Of This Month's Empire Spielberg Special Magazine

Paul Shipper Cover

This month will see Steven Spielberg taking over the top movie magazine, Empire.  To celebrate there will be a number of special edition covers featuring some of the director's movies.  Jaws, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Ready Player One and Indiana Jones all get their own cover but the best one is saved for subscribers.  The talented Paul Shipper (Who did the amazing Ready Player One poster) designed a masterpiece of a cover featuring Steven Spielberg and a number of his movies.  It really captures the magic of the director and it needs to be in every fan's collection.  We love it so much that we are going to give one away in our latest competition.

All you have to do is answer the question below and post your answer either in the comments or on our Facebook page or Twitter page.

Who wrote the novel, Ready Player One?


A - Ernest Cline
B - Michael Crichton
C - Dan Brown

One lucky winner will win the special edition magazine. We are making the competition available to everyone all over the world and one answer will get you entered. We will choose a lucky winner completely at random. The winner will be contacted for a mailing address and we will aim to get the magazine out within a few days of winning. We cannot substitute the prize and unfortunately we cannot be responsible for loss in the post. Closing date is Saturday 3rd March, 4pm GMT.

Good luck.

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.
