On Memorial Day, the West is getting wilder than ever!

In an exclusive new First Look trailer for History's Texas Rising, cast members Bill Paxton, Ray Liotta and Brendan Fraser get roped into plenty of action, including a steamy bathtub encounter!

From the same producers of the network's 2012 hit Hatfields and McCoys, the eight-hour miniseries (premiering May 25) details the Texas revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers.

On August 5, 1994, the world was introduced to The Lone Rangers, a band of heavy-metal misfits who just wanted their band to get heard, via Airheads.

Now that "The Mummy" has secured star status for its leading man, Brendan Fraser, Warner Bros. wants the actor to star as Phileas Fogg in yet another remake of the Jules Verne adventure story "Around the World in 80 Days." (The story served as the basis for the 1956 Best Picture Oscar-winner, starring David Niven, and for a TV mini-series a few years ago, starring Pierce Brosnan.) Warners wants "Mummy" director Stephen Sommers to direct the new picture, says Variety. Meanwhile, Fraser and Sommers may also reteam for a sequel to "The Mummy." Fraser will soon be seen as the title character in "Dudley Do-Right," a live-action version of the '60s cartoon.
