SLCC 2014 – Cary Elwes Panel

I’ve finally figured out what I’ve been doing wrong when it comes to conventions over the last couple of years. For some reason I wasn’t have as much fun as others seemed to be having. Turns out I was doing it so horribly wrong. You actually have to attend panels in order to have a […]

If it wasn’t enough for the fandom to languish after the critical failure of Terminator: Salvation, the movie’s production rights were in hell until they were fished out by Skydance Productions by the end of 2012.
