10 John Williams Tracks To Get You In The Mood For Christmas. Merry Christmas

John Williams Christmas Music To Enjoy This Christmas Eve

T'was the night before Christmas (well almost) and all was quiet. Let's rectify that and make it even more like Christmas with ten tracks by John Williams. Merry Christmas.

Lets start with a classic from the movie, Home Alone.

We'll return to Home Alone later.  Next up it's a real treat.  John Williams conducting Sleigh Ride with the excellent Boston Pops.

Over to Home Alone 2 now with Christmas at Carnegie Hall.

All aboard the Hogwarts express now as we head to the magical land of Harry Potter for Christmas, floating candles and all.

Staying within the Harry Potter universe we have this wonderfully majestic piece from The Chamber of Secrets.  Has a magical Christmas feel.

Back to Home Alone now.  We couldn't do a John Williams Christmas list without this one.

Finally lets have a really traditional medley of Christmas music.  Thanks for reading and listening.  Merry Christmas everyone.

The Bearded Trio - The Site For Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, John Williams and a whole lot more.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with 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.…

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.

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.
