I assume it's true. It'd be pretty darn irresponsible for a website to report the death of someone so big.

Pretty sad news. His work was remarkable and he really was the best at what he did.

The year's not even half way over, but all these greats keep passing. :frowning:

Oh man.... it seems like AICN is the first to report. I have been looking at all the major sites and nothing is coming up.

RIP.......................

I'm not 100% convinced yet. Until it shows up on Yahoo or some other major news site. Then I will believe this.

Wikipedia says:

Stan Winston died on June 15, 2008, in Los Angeles, California, of cancer.

That is too bad. R.I.P. Mr. Winston.

Edit: Ooops, Michael beat me to it.

Call me cynical, but I'll wait until a real source of news reports it.:frowning:

Though we don't really think about it that often, he really was one of the single most influential persons on modern cinema. A true legend.

You'll be sorely missed Mr. Winston.

Wow, that really sucks. I had no idea he had cancer.

Along with Rick Baker and Rob Bottin, Stan's been one of my behind-the-scenes heroes for years. Hopefully, his studios will continue with the amazing work he pioneered.

RIP, Stan.

Associated Press has now picked it up.

You leave us much too soon, Mr. Winston.
(this seems to be happening a lot lately) :frowning:

Very sad news. He left behind a nice body of work that amazed audiences and inspired others to create cinematic magic and wonder to push the filmmaking envelope.

RIP, Mr. Winston.

He recently built the real-world Iron Man armors. Very cool stuff. He really made the Adi Granov designs come to life.
