Slimey Blorp (Possibly Called Bert) Absorbing Everything In Latest Episode Of Star Wars Roll Out.

BREAKING NEWS!  BLORP ABSORBING EVERYTHING!  FAST THINKING REQUIRED!

Slime!  It's very much the "in thing" at the moment.  Walk into any toy store and you will see slime stuff for sale whether it be in a plastic container or masquerading as glittery Unicorn dropping.  You can't miss it and it's hot property.  Well, it's no coincidence that the latest episode of Star Wars: Roll Out features a rather cute slime monster (The Blorp) called "Bert."  Actually I made the name up but in my mind his name is "Bert" and if any Lucasfilm employee is reading this, please make it canon.

Anyway, the two minute animated feature stars "Bert" the Blorp as we join him innocently absorbing everyone around him.  Leave it to Maz Kanata (my name is better - Rob) to save the day and use what could be considered some clever science.

Check out the episode below and let me know if you think "Bert" is the best name ever for a slime monster. - Rob

The blorp is absorbing everything and everyone in its path on Takodana! Maz Kanata must think fast to save her castle, her guests, and herself.

Star Wars Roll Out is a series of whimsical animated shorts featuring new adventures in a charming and unique animation style. Join Rey, Chewbacca, BB-8, the porgs, and other favorite characters from a galaxy far, far away, in a bright and colorful art style perfect for children and adults!

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.
