Special effects guru Stan Winston, who worked most recently on Iron Man and the new Terminator, has died following a seven-year battle with cancer. From the LA Times:
The Oscar-winning visual effects artist died at his home Sunday evening surrounded by family after a seven-year struggle with multiple myeloma, according to a representative from Stan Winston Studio.
Winston won visual effects Oscars for 1986's "Aliens, "1992's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and 1993's "Jurassic Park."
Tonight I shall watch his work on Monster Squad in tribute. (Thanks for the tip, Louie.)
