MAY THE 4TH: THE CLASSIC STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT IS NOW AVAILABLE ON GOG.COM

The Force Is With GOG.COM

There's nothing like playing some classic gaming.  I must be getting old as it seems 2004 is now classed as "classic."  Anyway, to celebrate May 4th, GOG.COM are making the classic Star Wars Battlefront available on their platform and not only that but there's a whole host of Star Wars games with up to 65% off.  Time to revisit Knights of the Old Republic I think.  Here's the press release:

To celebrate May the 4th, GOG.COM is announcing the digital release of the legendary STAR WARS™ Battlefront™ (Classic, 2004), and launching a week-long sale on classic Star Wars games.

From the Battle for Naboo to the Battle of Endor, the Historical Campaign mode in the classic STAR WARS Battlefront, lets players become a fighter of the Republic and the Empire alike as they take part in epic battles for the control over the galaxy.

In the Galactic Conquest mode, gamers choose between 20 characters and 4 factions and fight on land, air and in space. Plus, take command of a variety of vehicles on 16 massive maps, including Bespin, Hoth or Naboo.

STAR WARS Battlefront (Classic, 2004) is available now DRM-free and at a 15% discount until May 9th, 10PM UTC.

During GOG.COM’s Star Wars week, there are plenty of other galactic goodies: players follow the path of Darth Revan in the pinnacle of Action RPGs Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic (-65%), become a Jedi in Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast™(-65%), or go and win some Pod-races in Star Wars™ Episode 1: Racer (-40%).

There’s even more waiting for fans in the May the 4th sale, available through May 9th at 10PM UTC.

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.
