James Cameron On PROMETHEUS And Ridley Scott's Return To ALIEN Universe

This summer, Ridley Scott returns to Alien universe with the upcoming film Prometheus, which is set 30 years before the original 1979 film. Now, James Cameron, who directed a sequel to Alien, shares some of his thoughts regarding Prometheus (starts at 1:26). He also talks a little bit about Avatar sequels and if we will ever see Terminator films in 3D. Check out the video below:

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus is set to hit theatres on June 8th, 2012.

I did like Avatar, don't care if it was derivative. But yeah Aliens was a brilliant action movie, but I still prefer the original for all out tension and character.

Prometheus will be the best movie of the year. Just not the most anticipated ha

Can't wait for the Avatar sequels. Love that Cameron is as eager to see Prometheus as any.

He was in a sub headed for the lowest point on Earth - the Mariana's Trench, which is pretty ballzy for a guy who's got a lot to lose. The trench is more than 6 miles beneath the ocean. Very dangerous.

'He's got the resume of very memorable movies, not successful movies, MEMORABLE movies, the kind of movie everyone has at least heard about.'
What are you talking about? He directed the most successful movie of all time!TWICE! As well as at least three more of the worlds most loved...how is that more memorable than successful?!?

Uh, hated his last two films (Titanic and Avatar).

Ironic, since T2 is one of my all-time favorites.
fistofthenorthstar - 3/27/2012, 4:06 PM

GreendaleHumanBeing - 3/27/2012, 4:11 PM

Jim, if you're reading this please make this movie!


headlopper - 3/27/2012, 4:45 PM
@batlizard11- That's a stroke of genius! He would be perfect for Aquaman! Good call.
HULK2099 - 3/27/2012, 4:48 PM
James Cameron should direct Promethesus sequel ! And continue the pattern with David Fincher for Promethesus 3 :D
headlopper - 3/27/2012, 4:49 PM
^^^ Definitely!( skrew that show- you're getting the points here!)

I'm not apologizing to anyone, Avatar in IMAX was the $#it! Loved it!
Tevii - 3/27/2012, 5:25 PM
@economics- ummmm Ridley Scott is without a doubt a master storyteller
Tevii - 3/27/2012, 5:25 PM
Cameron always said if Ridley returned to the Alien franchise then he would as well. hopefully Avatar doesnt kill that possibility
superbatspiderman - 3/27/2012, 5:26 PM
As much as I like Alien I think Aliens is a much better movie. The effects and visuals were fantastic for it's time.
LAWLZY96 - 3/27/2012, 5:33 PM
Avatar was good. Haters gonna hate.
NOLANITE - 3/27/2012, 5:33 PM

Credibility Lost.

So whos gonna line up on Re-Opening day for Titanic 3D?!
Not me thats who!
Dude is only trying to up its domestic and worldwide gross...just like a certain film that was Re-Re-Released.
Looking at You EPISODE I!!!

@ironman53 - Is it a good thing or a bad thing that I know who all 4 of those chicks in your gifs are? :p

As far as Cameron goes, from what I hear apparently he's a crazy asshole for the actors to deal with on-set, but dang that guy knows how to make good movies.

And for the record, I don't get all the hate that Avatar gets. Yeah it's basically Dances With Space Wolves, (or any other "Going Native" story that's been done a bazillion times) but who cares? Dances with Wolves was awesome. So if that's the movie you're going to emulate, you're making a good choice
Pahenya - 3/27/2012, 10:14 PM
Cameron and Scott need to team up on a Silver Surfer movie...now that would be EPIC
LoudNoises - 3/27/2012, 10:22 PM
@GrayMatter - I gotta agree with you. I really liked Avatar. Who cares if the story isn't completely original, that's hardly the point. He took a classic story and molded it into a Science Fiction film, and not only did he do an incredible job retelling the story, he gave us some of the most beautiful special effects on a scale not seen before. They created an alien jungle from scratch! Give the guy some credit, even if he is an ass to work with (which I'm sure isn't entirely true). The point is he gets the job done.
Ryguy88 - 3/27/2012, 11:16 PM
It's funny how out of Scott, Cameron and Fincher the one who directed the shittiest Alien movie became the best director.

I couldn't watch anymore after he called his own movie a timeless classic...what a total douche...And the tar sands are as good a place as any to get oil and you don't have to buy it off of terrorists, dumbass!
Kalel219 - 3/28/2012, 2:12 AM

Love that Jayden James gif, reminds of all the times my gf and I watched the full length ;)
Fogs - 3/28/2012, 6:34 AM
He was good back in the day. T2 was really boss.

Actually Avatar isn't terrible. The problem was the forced hype they tried to make.

Nice flick to watch when you have nothing else to do. But I'd watch it 2 or 3 times MAX.
ralfinader - 3/28/2012, 2:19 PM
Not a fan of this guy. Camaron only made two movies worth watching: Aliens and T2. Everything else he has done, except Abyss, which was damn boring, has been a rehash and dumbing down of plotlines from older movies, and Avatar made almost no attempt to seperate it's script from Dances With Wolves.

But hey, if people judge quality and enjoyment from box office takes, then those same people must love them some Twilight!

@Knossis, mbembet, and Monkeyballs - agreed. Although not mad at him for Titanic, just the dumbasses that loved it so much to spend that much money on it.
