In an interview with Vulture, director James Cameron said that the “Alien” franchise has “wandered all over the map.” Cameron said, “I don’t think it’s worked out terribly well. I think we’ve moved on beyond it. It’s like, okay, we’ve got it, we’ve got the whole Freudian biomechanoid meme. I’ve seen it in 100 horror films since.” Let’s not forget Cameron is giving us four Avatar sequels. Hmmm. Cameron directed the 1986 “Alien” sequel “Aliens.” “Alien: Covenant,” from original “Alien” director Ridley Scott, is due out in May.
