Prop Store’s Cinema Poster Live Auction was held yesterday (Thursday 23rd April 2020) and was suitable for fans with a variety of budgets, with lots selling between £50 and £7,000. The Prop Store team once again proved how agile and dexterous they can be, adapting to the current pandemic situation by producing the entire auction over a Zoom video-call.

Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented on the auction: “We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome of our fifth Cinema Poster Live Auction. We saw a record-number of bidders from across the globe, and sold strong and over-estimate, with many of our James Bond and Star Wars posters achieving particularly great results!”

Mark Hochman, Prop Store’s poster expert, also commented on the auction: "Prop Store's fifth poster auction certainly achieved some impressive results which just goes to show, that even in such troubling times, if you have the right content and approach it will sell, and I'm sure some of today's purchases have put big smiles on the buyer's faces. High quality, rare Star Wars, Sci-Fi and James Bond memorabilia will always be popular, and our results prove that.”

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.…

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.
