We've lost the great Bill Paxton, at the age of just 61...
Don't even know where to start. Perhaps with the basics: the brilliant Bill Paxton has died, his family has confirmed. He was just 61 years old.

Paxton passed away following complications from surgery. He leaves behind a body of work that’s as broad as it is brilliant. Inevitably, we gravitate towards his roles in Aliens and The Terminator (he was one of the few who could time after time stand the rigours of a James Cameron production, and come out eager for the next), but Paxton’s resume is full of favourites. Twister, Trespass and Big Love, for instance. Plus his character work in the likes of Apollo 13, Tombstone, Predator 2, Near Dark and Edge Of Tomorrow is memorable too.
"It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery," a representative for the family said in a statement to Rolling Stone.
"A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as
Tributes have already started to flood in from the Hollywood community.
Bill Paxton was, simply, a wonderful man. A wonderful man… Hanx.

Bill Paxton was open, kind and talented. He had an engaging and engrossing charisma. So very sad that he is gone.

Johnny Mnemonic celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, and while it may not necessarily be a film many sci-fi fans celebrate, it’s always held a special place in my heart, undoubtedly being one of the coolest films I saw that year and one that also revitalized the cyberpunk film movement (yes, even before The Matrix came along and did it a bit more effectively).
For the uninitiated, Johnny Mnemonic transports us to the year 2021; in the opening text crawl, we learn that corporations have taken over
For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated Apd detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.
Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has
The Irish-German actor is in negotiations to play Chad Cutler, a man who wants to get away from his family's criminal lifestyle, reports Variety.
The gangster film is said to be "infused with action, crime and a strong sense of humour".
Trespass Against Us will be the debut film for British director Adam Scott, who will be shooting the movie in the UK next year.
The Chemical Brothers, who have worked with Scott on their music videos, will provide the soundtrack. The band will write and perform the original score for the film.
Fassbender can be seen in two films this year - 12 Years a Slave and The Counsellor.
Earlier this week, Fassbender confessed that he didn't think of himself as good-looking.
"I think of myself as, you know, alright," he said. "I used to have bad acne as a teenager,
Despite his successes – and films that are so beloved and recognized that they’re always on the verge of being remade – Hill’s output has slowed down. It’s a shame, as his films are exactly the kind of character driven, mature, and efficient action that moviegoers are craving. “A Bullet to the Head” is Hill’s first big screen production since 2002, and hopefully is a sign of a career resurgence
Also starring Jason Momoa, Christian Slater, Sarah Shahi and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Bullet to the Head is scheduled for a release in February – look out for our review in a couple of weeks, but in
There have been a number of cases over the years when consideration for public opinion has led distributors to postpone the release of movies. In the last weeks of the second world war the morale-boosting Hollywood picture Objective Burma! was withdrawn from British cinemas shortly after it opened (and shelved for seven years) because of protests against the slighting of our "Forgotten Army" in Burma. In 1963 Dr Strangelove was postponed due to the Kennedy assassination, and a jokey reference to Dallas was changed to Vegas, thus puzzling lip-readers. The 1992 Los Angeles riots following the acquittal of Rodney King's assailants led to Walter Hill's Looters being cancelled; it appeared later, renamed Trespass. Many movies were anxiously re-edited after 9/11, and more recently the British release of Ben Affleck's kidnapping thriller Gone Baby Gone

The remake is being written and directed by Walter Hill and produced and financed by Lakeshore Entertainment. I just don't see how they are going to be able to catch that same level of insane creepy charm that the original had. They can't, so I don't see the point of the remake.
Hill has worked on a ton of films over the years that include Last Man Standing, Trespass, Red Heat, 48 Hours, Another 48 Hours, Brewster's Millions, The Warriors and more.
The story is set in an old decaying Hollywood mansion where Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister Blanche, a movie queen from the ’30s, are forced into retirement after a crippling accident.
Directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors, Trespass), Bullet to the Head sees Stallone play Jimmy Bobo, a hitman who teams with a young NYPD detective (Sung Kang) in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of New Orleans. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.
