SDCC 2013: Edge of Tomorrow panel: Bill Paxton

Bill Paxton, the ultimate character actor, a handsome charmer who could easily be a leading man, but was most known for his hilarious film-stealing scenes in supporting roles throughout his 40-plus year career, has died. The actor who perhaps is best known for his defeated exclamation, “Game Over man, Game Over!” in James Cameron’s 1986 action sequel Aliens died yesterday from complications from surgery. He was 61. Paxton is survived by his second wife and two children.

Aliens: The Set Photography
Hardcover
Written by Simon Ward
Titan Books
Release Date: August 9th, 2016

Most fans today know James Cameron as the director of the two biggest money makers of all time: Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009). But thirty years ago, he was a man with one major hit to his name, the 1984 classic The Terminator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Cameron proved he could blend science fiction and action together in a way never quite seen before in movie history. So when he worked to bring a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterwork Alien, everyone was paying attention. Scott’s film was a gothic horror film in outer space featuring an unforgettable monster from the mind of H.R. Giger. Cameron’s film was vastly different, and thanks to the hard work of Simon Ward and the people at Titan Books, we can now step behind the scenes into the world of Aliens and celebrate he sequel’s 30 year birthday with Aliens: The Set Photography. The book features stunning photos, fun stories, and an introduction by Carrie Henn.

Star Trek Logo CBS

CBS has released a bunch of promo videos for some of their upcoming new series, including the new Star Trek TV series from Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods), the return of MacGyver, and the new series Training Day based on director Antoine Fuqua’s movie of the same name starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, with Bill Paxton taking on Washington’s role of the whatever-it-takes veteran detective and newcomer Justin Cornwell playing the young trainee.

The Star Trek promo is brief and doesn’t show any actual footage, but does reveal the official logo for the new show. The MacGyver first look promo is longer and plays more like a trailer, while the Training Day promo is a full on preview running almost four minutes long. You can check out all three of the videos below, along with more info on each of the shows.

Edge of Tomorrow movie review
Edge of Tomorrow
Director: Doug Liman
Screenwriters: Christopher McQuarrie, Jez and John-Henry Butterworth
Cast: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 113 Minutes
Release Date: June 6, 2013

Live. Die. Repeat.

Directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), Edge of Tomorrow is an ambitious science-fiction film that also serves as an entertaining thesis on electronic gaming and its symbiotic relationship with modern filmmaking.

Based on the novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the film takes place in the near future where an alien race – the Mimics – has invaded the Earth and overtaken most of Western Europe. The Mimics can anticipate and counter our combat strategies with ease, making them unstoppable. To stand a chance against them, we create battle suits – armored exoskeletons reminiscent of the Power Loader from Aliens or the hydraulic battle chassis from The Matrix Trilogy.

Disney In Depth: ‘Million Dollar Arm’ Movie Review

Disney In Depth banner

Million Dollar Arm
Director: Craig Gillespie
Writer: Tom McCarthy
Cast: Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal, Pitobash, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Alan Arkin
Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 120 Minutes
Release Date: May 16, 2013

Million Dollar Arm strikes the right feeling in Disney’s winning line of sports films. With an aptly cast Jon Hamm portraying real-life agent J.B. Bernstein, the movie balances the essence of the tough and sometimes manipulative world of athletics with the right amount of heartwarming spirit. But does Arm play hardball or go straight for the sentiment? The uplifting tone may be everything you would expect, but the journey it takes in reaching that point throws some curveballs along the way.

Seven Holes for Air is a heartbreaking story of a stoic man coming to terms with his coming death at the hands of cancer. It looks at how we perceive ourselves, how our past influences our present day behavior, and what truly makes a man.

Bob has had a headache for months but refuses to go to the doctor. He is too busy working on a new building where the foreman and company owner are behaving shady and is wanting to build a shed for his daughter to store her things when she comes home from college. After his wife Lisa schedules an appointment and conveniences her brother-in-law to take him, he soon finds out he has cancer. Trying to handle the treatment, his job and his home responsibilities, is leading him to fantasize about an alternate life where he is a farmer out in the west in the time of the railroad being built. There, his past, present, and work all meld together to let him play out both what is happening along with what he wishes would happen.

Movie Review: 2 Guns

2 Guns Movie Poster2 Guns
Director: Baltasar Kormákur
Screenwriter: Blake Masters
Cast: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, Fred Ward
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 2, 2013

Had 2 Guns been released in 1997, it would have been directed by Renny Harlin or Sheldon Lettich with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman Wesley Snipes as counter-terrorist operatives framed for a crime they didn’t commit.

The film’s tag line would be something like “They don’t play by the rules,” and the trailer would highlight the unlikely duo as a highly effective tag-team of street smarts and technical precision, dealing out one-liners and helicopter spin-kicks amidst explosions and shoot-outs.

Luckily, it isn’t 1997 – because I would be in middle school – and 2 Guns is an entirely solid, straightforward “Movie for Guys Who Like Movies” directed by Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur (101 Reykjavík, Contraband). Based on a comic book series of the same name published by BOOM! Studios, 2 Guns stars Denzel Washington as DEA Agent Bobby Trench and Mark Wahlberg as NCIS Agent Marcus Stigman, two undercover operatives who are unknowingly investigating each other.

Roger Corman

A month ago, we reported that legendary producer Roger “King of the B’s” Corman was starting a subscriber-only YouTube channel this summer called Corman’s Drive-In that would bring an extensive catalog of over 400 films he either produced, directed, or both to the Internet.

Corman’s Drive-In is now officially open for business and we have some other crucial details for you. The channel will feature a rotating selection of 30 titles that will be refreshed every month and it will all be made available to viewers for the low monthly price of $3.99. It will premiere with a double feature of the first two films Corman made with future Oscar-winning Hollywood icon Jack Nicholson: the 1958 exploitation drama The Cry Baby Killer and 1960’s man-eating plant comedy Little Shop of Horrors, the latter the inspiration for the 1986 musical remake and the off-Broadway show it was based on.
