New Renault KADJAR Advert Is Full Of Star Wars Goodness

Exciting New Star Wars Themed Ad From Renault Has Chewbacca and The Millennium Falcon Protecting Their Kadjar Car

Renault have launched a new advertising campaign that features the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.  The commercial features the Renault KADJAR which is a rather nice looking SUV (or 4 by 4 if you live in the UK.)

The advert is full of Star Wars and this particular one is part of their "Alternative Road" promotion.  A mother and her son are being chased by Cloud Riders so Chewbacca is on hand to protect them.  The Millennium Falcon sweeps in to help with the protection of the Renault Kadjar.

Also, to back up this new partnership between Renault and Lucasfilm, the French company are offering customers in Europe a go on a VR unit where you can witness new scenes with Han and Chewie.

Renault have this to say about their new advert:

"we'll find out how taking the alternative road led Han Solo to meet his mighty future co-pilot, Chewbacca. Now, thanks to the features of Renault KADJAR - 4x4 transmission, emergency breaking system and blind-spot alerts - Renault is offering its customers their chance to 'take an alternative road' too."

I drive a Renault but have yet to see Chewie, the Falcon or even an Ugnaught, however I have tried spinning because that's a good trick.



Solo: A Star Wars Story is in theaters on May 25.

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.
