The cast of Aliens assembled at Comic-Con to celebrate the iconic science fiction film s 30th anniversary, and all agreed that James Cameron s script is a key part of what makes the film a classic.
But woven into that strong storytelling are also some of cinema s most memorable one-liners, as stars Bill Paxton and Sigourney Weaver recalled.
Paxton recalled the origin of his famous Game Over!
The stuff I improvised was stuff that wasn t in the script, but it was stuff that I d thrown at Jim Cameron in a rehearsal.
Jim s mind is like a steel trap — he d remember something I d said when we were rehearsing in a scene we were shooting two months later.
He d say, You said something about the express elevator to hell ... yeah, put that in here!
