Bill Paxton Passes Away At 61

 I am so sad to hear of the passing of Bill Paxton  yesterday. My wife and I met had the honor of meeting him a few years ago at a Comic Con party. We ended up hanging out with him and his wife pretty much the whole night. I was even asked to walk Bill back to his room so that he wouldn't be bothered by autograph seekers.They were both so nice. Of all our Comic Con experiences that night is one of my favorites. Bill Paxton , a much-loved actor, director and producer, a scene-stealer able to play both moral and terrible characters with a raw charm, has died. He was 61. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas in 1955, Paxton frequently attended movies and other cultural events with his father and siblings from a young age. His interest in film and filmmaking started early too; studying in the UK at Richmond College he met two friends and began making Super 8 movies upon their return to Texas. He moved to Los Angeles in 1974 to break into the industry, and got his first job as a

Aliens Reunion Happening At Comic Con

July 18 will mark three decades since James Cameron’s Aliens was released in theaters — which is only a little over half the time Sigourney Weaver ’s Ripley spent in hypersleep after the nightmare events of 1979’s Alien . In Cameron’s sequel, she awoke to learn her old life was gone – and new life in the form of a pioneer colony had sprung up on the empty planet where she and the deceased crew of the Nostromo encountered the hyper-predatory Xenomorph. It was not enough time for the two species to learn to live in harmony. To commemorate the release of the 1986 action/sci-fi classic, EW can reveal that San Diego’s Comic-Con will host an Aliens reunion on Saturday, July 23. Both Cameron and Weaver will participate in the Q&A in the 6,500-seat Hall H, along with producer Gale Anne Hurd, Bill “Game Over” Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn, and the all-grown-up Carrie Henn . “That should be fun. Get the usual suspects back together,” Cameron says. Weaver sa

Terminator Sequel Gets Terminated

After the disappointing box office results for Terminator Genisys last year, there was a lot of talk of recalibrating the attempted new trilogy. Now it appears Paramount is ready to put the brakes on even harder, removing the planned second film from its release schedule. The next Terminator film, which didn't have a confirmed cast, director or writers, but had been hoping to kick off shooting this year, had been sitting on the company's schedule in the prime early summer slot of May 19, 2017. Hopes had been high that Genisys would launch a revived Terminator franchise, but the critical reaction and the low turnout ($89 million in the US, with a slightly healthier worldwide response thanks partly to China) didn't instill confidence. There may well still be movement on the Terminator front, especially as the rights revert to creator James Cameron in 2019, but for now Arnie and co. are in timeline limbo. Still, Terminator's loss is Baywatch's gain, as the film ve

Television Review: #TexasRising Doesn't Get It Quite Right...Again

The History Channel miniseries doesn't get it quite right...again. Review by Matt Cummings For something whose name suggests they should hold the monopoly on truth, The History Channel seems enamored with constantly telling its own embellished version of America's story. From the terribly-inaccurate Sons of Liberty to The Hatfields and McCoys , History doesn't quite get that our story doesn't need a dramatic touch to be excellent. Such is the case with Texas Rising , the 10-hour, 5-parter mega story that mires us in dirt, filth, and soap-opera dialogue while doing very little to tell us the real story of Texas' genesis. Starting off with the longest dialogue crawl in recent memory (it goes on like Dark Helmet's ship in Spaceballs ), Texas Rising sets us immediately into the center of The Alamo, the fort which Mexico General Santa Anna ( Olivier Martinez )had destroyed in 1836. Word gets back to the commander of the resistance Sam Houston ( Bill Paxton

#BillPaxton In Talks To Join Grand Theft Auto Film

THR is reporting Bill Paxton is in negotiations to star opposite Daniel Radcliffe in Grand Theft Auto , BBC Films’ true-life account of the fight between the creator of Grand Theft Auto and a Miami lawyer who wanted to ban video game violence. Radcliffe plays Sam Houser, the British co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, the company behind GTA as well as games such as Max Payne and Red Dead. He is credited with popularizing GTA as one of the gaming world’s biggest franchises but also amping up the violence quotient. Paxton will play activist attorney Jack Thompson, who frequently attacked GTA, Houser and Rockstar Games. He made his name blasting media companies for pushing rap and sex onto the airwaves before turning his attention to video games. His unorthodox methods eventually led to his being disbarred in 2008 for inappropriate behavior. British director Owen Harris, who directed episodes of Britain's Misfits and Black Mirror, is helming the drama, described as

Liam Hemsworth Offered Lead In Independence Day Sequel

Liam Hemsworth has an offer to star in the Independence Day sequel, currently titled ID Forever. The sequel to the 1996 alien invasion film has been bubbling away in the development pods for, well, seemingly forever. There have been various versions proposed, talk of two films shot back-to-back and endless rumours about who might return to star. With Will Smith out of the picture for now and Jeff Goldblum and Bill Paxton apparently set to return, director Roland Emmerich is looking for a new star and Hemsworth might just be it. There’s no word on what his character might be, but that’s not even worth considering unless he actually signs on to the thing. Carter Blanchard has written the most recent draft of the script and the studio set a 24 June 2016 release date late last year, so Emmerich needs to get cracking on the movie if he’s to deliver the requisite landmark-destroying mayhem most people will be showing up for.

The Terminator Turns 30 Today.

Remember when the 21st century seemed like an eternity away? In the latter half of the last century, Hollywood got pretty imaginative guessing what awaited us in the near-future, with ray guns or hoverboards or some other gadget that is still, in 2014, years or decades away from even having the chance of becoming commonplace. Some of these films, like 1989's " Back to the Future Part II " (which depicted flying cars as a popular form of transportation in the year 2015) took an optimistic approach, while others (take 1982's grim " Blade Runner ") held a more dystopian view -- as was certainly the case with one of the most ground-breaking sci-fi films of that era, 1984's " The Terminator ." It was conceived as a low-budget flick that would quickly be forgotten (with almost no expectations from the studio that it would ever become a success), but " The Terminator " has defied just about all predictions over the last three decades.
