This past weekend the Calagary Expo hosted an event celebrating ALIENS

I just happened on this today...else I would have posted it in the convention news.

Here is an article about it in the Calagary Sun

if i wouldnt love the Alien serie i would say it smells like desperation when 50-80yrs actors come to an event like this. well you have to raise money in some ways

I thought it was great, very funny. Made me laugh when Ron Perlman in his message said he killed the franchise.

When you're organising an event like this, you take what props you can get.

Naaah... I guess most of them (I am talking of those who never made conventions) have become less picky with age. The fact is maybe they thought they owed it to the fans somehow... and also saw this as an opportunity to see peers they did not for several years. I don't think is a money thing. You get older, you realise you won't last forever, so better reunite before bitting the dust (remember Egon from Ghostbusters). Besides, an extra income does not hurt.

BTW... Lance Henriksen posted a link in his facebook page to tons of photos from the event... check it out! ;D

Oh yeah, meant to post since I was there haha.  It was a lot of fun.  We saw the panel with Rolston and Goldstein the day before along with the Spotlight on Bill Paxton.  Ricco Ross, Frost, was on our flight!  Loved the EXPOsed event besides the chairs being too close together.  Biehn and Paxton were just great together, they should be in something again soon.  Wonder if a role in Paxton's new mini-series has come up...Moderator Garrett Wang fanboy'd out over Paxton though and didn't give much love to Biehn.  Henriksen looked way bored to be there for the first part of it as Wang only asked him one direct question when he came out, focusing on Reiser instead.  Organizer said all the stage props were made by a local house so maybe that explains the Resurrection appearance.
