The man behind legendary science fiction films The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, and Avatar explores the origins of a genre that has morphed from a cult following into a cornerstone of pop culture. Oscar-winning writer, director and producer James Cameron reaches back into sci-fi’s roots to better understand how fans’ favorite films, TV shows, books, and video games were born. Cameron’s journey of discovery includes his interviews with contemporaries — Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Sigourney Weaver and others — who debate the merits, meanings, and impacts of the films and novels that influenced them and discuss where the genre — and our species — might be going in the future.
James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction is a uniquely intimate look at science fiction’s roots, futuristic vision and our fascination with its ideas through interviews by James Cameron with A-list storytellers, stars and other whose careers have defined the field, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith and Sigourney Weaver, among many others. Cameron takes us on a journey of discovery and exploration, helping us understand where science fiction’s ideas came from – and where they’re taking us.
Special features include extended interviews with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Guillermo Del Toro and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
