Ridley Scott On ALIEN – AFI Interview


Ridley Scott’s new film Prometheus will be in theaters in about 3 weeks, it marks the Director’s return to the ALIEN cinematic universe he helped to create thirty-three years ago back in 1979. This is one of the films I’ve been excited about, going so far as to avoid seeing too many trailers or much of the Viral marketing that have been hitting the internet lately.

Presented below are two interviews with the Director conducted by the American Film Institute where he briefly discusses the three stages of the ALIEN and the elements of the original film’s production that made it such a classic Horror/Sci-Fi film.
