‘Aliens’ turns 30: 30 things you didn’t know about James Cameron’s classic

18 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Aliens Turns 30

Aliens turns thirty this year. Hard to believe we know but it’s been three decades since James Cameron followed Ridley Scott‘s haunted house in space film with action-packed, all-out war.

The story joins up with Lieutenant Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) 57 years after the events aboard the Nostromo. Luckily, due to the power of a cryo-chamber, Ripley hasn’t aged a day and, after being found floating in space, she’s returned to civilisation. Sadly though her nightmares have followed her and she’s suffering from Ptsd big time. Unfortunately for her, counselling sessions are foregone in favour of having her lead a military expedition back to the terrifying planet after contact with the humans currently colonising it is lost. Things go from bad to worse when, rather than one menacing beast, there are hundreds, if not thousands. Ripley, a handful of marines and the sole surviving colonist, »

Aliens, Terminator 2: how James Cameron crafts his sequels

4 July 2016 7:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 6, 2016

With Aliens and Terminator 2 celebrating their 25th and 30th anniversaries this month, we look at how James Cameron crafts perfect sequels.

In the middle of 1983, James Cameron suddenly found himself unexpectedly busy. He had rewrites to do on The Terminator, a project that was supposed to start filming that summer but wound up being pushed back due to its star Arnold Schwarzenegger's other work commitments. At the same time, he also had two other scripts to write: a Rambo sequel for Carolco and an Alien sequel for 20th Century Fox.

Seemingly unfazed, Cameron simply worked out how many pages he had to write, divided the number by the amount of time he had - about four months - and got down to work. Three of the most successful action movies of the 1980s therefore had their creative genesis at roughly the same time, as Cameron spent »

Cobra at 30: saluting a Stallone 80s action treat

Was there ever a better 80s' tagline that 'Crime is a disease. Meet the cure'? Join us in celebrating the 30th birthday of Cobra...

This article contains spoilers for Cobra. We suspect we're the only website to have written those words in recent times....

Had Sylvester Stallone had his way, the now cult classic Beverly Hills Cop would have been a much different film. Before Eddie Murphy was cast in the role that would define his acting career, the part of Axel Foley was offered to Sly. Yet the Italian Stallion had other ideas in mind for what he wanted the film to be, so he took it upon himself to rewrite the script, moulding it to suit his strengths as a white-knuckled mortal terminator. As screenwriter Daniel Petrie Jr told us last year, whilst it was "considered a coup to have written a script to attract »

28 February 2016 6:39 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Fifty Shades of Grey put on a dominating performance at the 36th annual Razzie Awards – the annual pre-Oscars event that celebrates the worst films of the year – as the cinematic adaptation "won" five Golden Raspberry Awards.

Despite racking up the Razzies, Fifty Shades of Grey had to share its win in the night's least prestigious category – Worst Film – as »

Sylvester Stallone’s Dud-Laden Resume May Hurt His Chances at Oscar This Year

13 February 2016 2:28 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

39 years ago, an unknown actor named Sylvester Stallone received his first Oscar nominations (best actor, best original screenplay) for the 1977 best picture winning boxing film, Rocky. A series of sequels and a handful of other franchises later, Stallone finds himself nominated once more, this time in the supporting category, for the character who made his career in Creed.

Stallone seems to be the likely front runner in this year’s best supporting actor race, scoring knockout wins at both the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards, however his career has been far from stellar since his last nomination in the original Rocky.

Over the course of his nearly four-decade-long career, Stallone has appeared in a number of movies that have been panned by critics and audiences, alike. In fact, the Golden Raspberry Awards, popularly known as the Razzies, “awards” the worst actor in film »

8 Best Action Movies Of The 1980s

11 January 2016 11:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

If you’re watching a movie with a scene where the indestructible cop hero clings to the roof of a speeding vehicle, it was probably made in the 1980s. In a lot of these films, the driver doesn’t attempt to swerve or hit the brakes, he just holds his hands in front of his face before crashing through a plate glass window.

At Cannon Films, the home of Chuck Norris and Charles Bronson, B-grade action films seemed to roll off the conveyor belt every week as founders Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus sought to fashion new stars in the mould of Arnold Schwarzenegger. These cheapies were cranked out by no-name filmmakers, scored by musically ungifted composers who owned an inordinate number of synthesizers and invariably concluded with freeze-frame endings following the climactic rooftop confrontation.

Elsewhere, Sylvester Stallone was setting the standard for over the top, wildly jingoistic »

Rambo no more; Sylvester Stallone plans to retire iconic role

5 January 2016 3:54 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While it seems like the Rocky franchise will continue onwards, the same unfortunately can't be said for Sylvester Stallone's other iconic role, that of John Rambo. Stallone kicked off the Rambo franchise with First Blood in 1982, which was followed by Rambo: First Blood Part II in '85, Rambo III in '88 and finally, Rambo in '06. Ever since the last film was released... Read More »
