John Hammond Costume And Steven Spielberg Signed DNA Animation Cel To Go Under The Hammer

John Hammond Costume and Signed Cel From Jurassic Park To Go Under The Hammer

Who would like to look like John Hammond from Jurassic Park and be screen accurate at the same time?  Well thanks to the upcoming film memorabilia auction from Prop Store and if you have an estimated £15,000 to £25,000 spare then you can do just that as this costume will go under the hammer from 30th September.  Well John did say he spared no expense. 

The upcoming movie and TV memorabilia auction has around £6 million worth of merchandise.  You have your usual Star Wars props such as Mace Windu's lightsaber from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and a Screen-Matched Tantive IV Stormtrooper Helmet from A New Hope.  But I'm more interested in the Spielberg related products such as that John Hammond costume.  Too rich?  Well what about a Mr DNA Animation Cel Autographed By Steven Spielberg himself.  That's estimated to sell for £600.   A bit more down to earth or maybe the equivalent of a coupon day or something.

Chris Bates, Commercial Director at ODEON UK & Ireland said: “We are delighted to welcome back the iconic Prop Store exhibition to London’s BFI IMAX. ODEON is proud to present the UK’s largest annual live auction of film and TV memorabilia for the sixth year running. There is an incredible collection of items up for auction this year and we very much look forward to welcoming film fans through our doors to see some of the world’s most well-known props and cinema moments."

Auction items will be on display at a free exhibition open to the public at the BFI IMAX, Waterloo, London, England SE1 8XR from 10:00am to 9:30pm, 18th September – 1st October 2019. Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction, in partnership with the BFI IMAX proudly presented by ODEON, will take place at the BFI IMAX Waterloo (1 Charlie Chaplin Walk, London SE1 8XR) over two days on Monday 30th September and Tuesday 1st October 2019 from 1:00pm.

It all kicks off on 30th September and you can register online.  If you bid or win something be sure to let us know.

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.
