Jurassic World: The Ride Details Revealed And TV Spot Released.

Jurassic World: The Ride TV Spot Released.  See Lots Of People Running Away.

The old Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios, Hollywood was first opened in 1996 and has been misleading innocent park visitors ever since.  I say misleading because of my own experience back in 2003.  You see, I knew all about the ride and the surprise at the end.  I told my wife that it's a nice sedate ride around the river while you take in the views and the occasional dinosaur.  I didn't mention the huge 84-foot drop at the end as you escape an angry T-Rex.  She still hasn't forgiven me.


Anyway, Jurassic Park: The Ride is being replaced to incorporate Jurassic World and actually has a story-line as we get to see the Indominus Rex doing what it does best, wreaking havoc.  Other dino delights will be on hand including the huge water monster, Mosasaurus which will be swimming around in a three-million gallon glass aquarium and apparently tries to break the glass.  That's unsettling.  In addition there will be a Raptor enclosure where visitors can pet their favourite Raptor.  Just check you still have both hands before you leave.

Wait a moment! This all sounds too real and I hope Universal Studios haven't really discovered how to bring these Dino-DNA hybrids to life, after all their new tag-line for the ride is "It just got real,"  Hmmm!  Also, they do boast "brand new technology which has never before been seen within a theme park."  Hope they stopped to consider the consequences.

A new TV spot has just been released and even though there's a lot of new dinosaurs, it pleases me to see that old Rexy is still prominent in the teaser trailer.

Visit UniversalStudiosHollywood.com to get more info on JURASSIC WORLD: THE RIDE.  There is no specific date when the new ride is opening its doors but we've been told it will be this summer.  Just listen out for "oohs" and "aahhs,"  that's how it starts right?



They spared no expense.  Hope they have a coupon day or something.

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.
