SideShow Set To Release Jurassic Park Goggles Replica

"Are they heavy?"
"Yeah!"
"Then they're expensive, put them back."

Model replica masters, Sideshow are releasing an unusual replica.  It's the Jurassic Park goggles that were supplied in each tour vehicle.  You know the ones?  The ones where Tim gets his grubby little hands on them to see what was outside using the in-built night technology.   Much to the annoyance of the blood-sucking lawyer.

Now you will be able to own a screen accurate replica of the night goggles.  The replica actually lights up just like the ones in the movie and when you look through them you can adjust them and you see the cross hair through the lens.  What you don't get (and understandably) is the actual night vision.  Lets be realistic here, we can spare no expense but within reason, right?

Here's what Sideshow tell us about the Jurassic Park goggles:

To ensure we got every detail just right, we worked with Universal Studios to measure, 3-D scan, and extensively photograph the original screen-used goggles. As a bit of trivia, the same goggles prop was used in both Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park; so we’re actually covering two movies with a single prop replica!

The 1:1 Jurassic Park Goggles have lenses that can be displayed in the open or closed position through two sets of inner barrels adjusted by manual control. With the open barrel, you can actually see through the goggles. When using the closed barrel, you will see the iconic cross hair pattern displayed on the outside. Order your own limited edition 1:1 Jurassic Park Goggles today to have the coolest life-size prop replica this side of Isla Nublar!

The goggles will set you back a T-Rex roaring $450 (£360) but come on?  How much fun can you have putting these on display and telling people to put them back after you've asked if they're heavy?  Expect them to start shipping around April to June, 2019.

**Update** Jurassic Collectables on Twitter skilfully pointed out to us that they probably meant Jurassic World as the other movie these goggles were in.  Thanks for that Jurassic Collectables, you clever people you.

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.
