James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction teases big questions
AMC has released a series of new teasers for its upcoming documentary series, James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, which is teasing the discussion of “big questions” in the science fiction genre.
The series, which was greenlit by AMC at the 2017 Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour, will consist of six one-hour episodes in which the titular director will sit down with guests to discuss the evolution of the genre from small-time following to the blockbusters it has spawned in the past few decades.
Cameron is considered one of the most prolific directors of the genre, delivering major box office and critical hits in it, including the first two entries in The Terminator franchise, the more action-driven Aliens, which is often cited as superior to its predecessor, and the 2009 Avatar, of which Cameron is currently filming the first and second sequels to while the fourth and fifth films will film shortly after the first two wrap.
The 63-year-old director will sit down with various other stars and directors known for the genre, including Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Christopher Nolan (Inception), Steven Spielberg (Ready Player One), Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), George Lucas (Star Wars), Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop) and Zoe Saldana (Avatar).
The series will debut on AMC Monday, April 30 at 10/9c.
