Filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to his roots with Prometheus, a pseudo prequel to the director’s classic 1979 sci-fi horror film Alien. Scott isn’t finished mining his past for new films, with an announced sequel to his 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner, tentatively scheduled for a 2014 release.
Here are the highlights from his oeuvre:
The Duellists (1977)
Blade Runner (1982)
Thelma & Louise (1991)
Black Hawk Down (2001)
American Gangster (2007)
Also worth noting: Scott directed the landmark 1984 Super Bowl commercial for Apple’s first Macintosh computer launched in 1984.
