James Cameron: Answers about Aliens Starlog 1987

James Cameron: Answers about Aliens Starlog 1987

JAMES CAMERON is the writer/director of ALIENS. Previously, he co-wrote (with Gale Anne Hurd) and directed Terminator. His first film as director was Piranha II: The Spawning. Cameron's other filmmaking credits include Rambo: First Blood II (as co-writer), Battle Beyond the Stars (as art director), Escape from New York (as special FX co-supervisor) and Planet of Horrors (as production designer/second unit director). Interviews with Cameron have appeared in STARLOG #89 & 110 and FANGORIA #56. A previously unpublished Cameron interview, conducted after ALIENS' release, appears in THE BLOODY BEST OF FANGORIA f6. This essay, Cameron's reply to readers' letters on ALIENS, was addressed to the Communications department but is published here as part of the ongoing SF professionals' forum, Other Voices.   by James Cameron.

As the writer and director of ALIENS, I naturally prefer the sort of cogent criticism contained in Lisa Snyder's letter (STARLOG #116) stating "ALIENS is perfect!" However, since there were 11 other letters in the same issue containing complaints of flaws in logic, accuracy and aesthetic execution, I thought I would take this opportunity to reply en masse.

I will take them in the order they were printed. First, Peter Briggs, who seems otherwise to be a fairly well-researched student of ALIEN, points out incorrectly that "LV-4ticias a ringed planet." The unnamed planetoid harbouring the alien derelict ship, to which I gave the designation LV-426, was, in fact, a moon of a ringed gas giant, which was occasionally glimpsed in the sky in ALIEN. The gas giant does not appear in ALIENS because the exterior scenes on LV-426 have an unbroken cloud cover or overcast, and the space scenes are handled in a cursory manner, advancing the story without dwelling on the wonders of interstellar travel, which so many other films have done so well, as their primary raison d'etre. You might say we approached LV-426 from the other direction, and the ringed gas giant companion was out of frame.

Briggs' next problem was "Why do the colonists not pick up the derelict SOS?" by which I assume he is referring to the acoustic beacon broadcasting a "warning." As some readers may know, scenes were filmed but cut from the final release version of the film which depicted the discovery of the derelict by a mom-and-pop geological survey (i.e.: prospecting) team. As scripted, they were given the general coordinates of its position by the manager of the colony, on orders from Carter Burke. It is not directly stated, but presumed, that Burke could only have gotten that information from Ripley or from the black-box flight recorder aboard the shuttle Narcissus, which accessed the Nostromo's onboard computer. When the Jorden family, including young Newt, reach the coordinates, they discover the derelict ship. Since we and the Nostromo crew last saw it, it has been damaged by volcanic activity, a lava flow having crushed it against a rock outcropping and ripped open its hull. Aside from considerations of visual interest, this serves as a justification for the acoustic beacon being non-operational.

Briggs' idea that the company had already discovered the derelict is, therefore, unnecessary and would invalidate Carter Burke's motives for attempting to bring back a sample of the organism for study, and using such drastic means to do it.

The missing scenes also provide a more solid connecting link in the process of the colony's infestation. We see Russ Jorden dragged back to their vehicle by his wife with a "facehugger" parasite attached to his face. We see the wife call the colony for a rescue party. It's fairly simple extrapolation to assume that the progress of the organism through the enclosed and isolated population of the colony followed much the same course, on a greater scale, as the life cycle of the original Alien on board Nostromo.

These scenes, as well as four or five others, which would certainly be of interest to fans, will be restored for the ABC airings of the film and, if all goes well, in a "special edition" videocassette, running roughly 12 minutes longer than the release of 137 minutes. No confirmed release date is set for either of these, but stay tuned.

Briggs' next beef is with the Alien Queen, and for several reasons. His contention is that she destroys the original intention of the missing scene in ALIEN. This is perfectly correct, but I find it somewhat irrelevant since as an audience member and as a filmmaker creating a sequel, I can really only be responsible for those elements which actually appeared in the first film and not to its "intentions." ALIEN screenwriter Dan O'Bannon's proposed life cycle, as completed in the unseen scene, would have been too restricting for me as a storyteller and I would assume that few fans of ALIENS would be willing to trade the final cat-fight between the moms for a point of technical accuracy that only a microscopic percentage of ALIEN fans might be aware of.

In my version of the Alien life cycle, the infestation of the colony would proceed like this:

1. Russ Jorden attacked, they radio for rescue.

2. Rescue party investigates ship...several members facehuggered... brought back to base for treatment.

3. Several "chestbursters" free themselves from hosts, escape into ducting, begin to grow.

4. Extrapolating from entomology (ants, termites, etc.), an immature female, one of the first to emerge from hosts, grows to become a new queen, while males become drones or warriors. Subsequent female larvae remain dormant or are killed by males... or biochemically sense that a queen exists and change into males to limit waste. The Queen locates a nesting spot (the warmth of the atmosphere station heat exchanger level being perfect for egg incubation) and becomes sedentary. She is then tended by the males as her abdomen swells into a distended egg sac. The drones and warriors also secrete a resinous building material to line the structure, creating niches in which they may lie dormant when food supplies and/or hosts for further reproduction become depleted (i.e. when all the colonists are used up). They are discovered in this condition by the troopers, but quickly emerge when new hosts present themselves.

Thus, even with the Queen's vast egg laying capacity, the Aliens are still a parasitic form, requiring a host from a different species to create the warrior or Queen stages of the life cycle. Since the warriors are bipedal with two arms (H.R. Giger's original design), it may be inferred that the facehugger is an indifferentiated parasite, which lays an egg inside a host, but that the resulting form (chestburster through adult) has taken on certain biological characteristics of its host. This would account for the degree of anthropomorphism in the design.

One admittedly confusing aspect of this creature's behaviour (which was unclear as well in ALIEN) is the fact that sometimes the warrior will capture prey for a host, and other times, simply kill it. For example, Ferro the dropship pilot is killed outright while Newt, and previously most of the colony members were only captured and cocooned within the walls to aid in the Aliens' reproduction cycle. If we assume the Aliens have intelligence, at least in the central guiding authority of the Queen, then it is possible that these decisions may have a tactical basis. For example, Ferro was a greater threat, piloting the heavily armed dropship, than she was a desirable host for reproduction. Newt, and most of the colonists, were unarmed and relatively helpless, therefore easily captured for hosting.

Please bear in mind the difficulty of communicating a life cycle this complex to a mass audience, which, seven years later, may barely recall that there was an Alien in ALIEN, let alone the specifics of its physical development. I had a great deal of story to tell, and a thorough re-education would have relegated ALIENS to a pedantic reprise of Ridley Scott's film. The audience seems to have a deep-seated faith in the Aliens' basic nastiness and drive to reproduce which requires little logical rationale. That leaves only hardcore fans such as myself and a majority of this readership to ponder the technical specifics and construct a plausible scenario.

Kelly Godel deplores the Aliens as "lame, weak and shameful follow-ups to their predecessor." A careful analysis of both films would show that the adult warrior (my term for the single adult seen in ALIEN) has the same physical powers and capabilities in ALIENS as it did previously. Since the Nostromo crew were unarmed, with the exception of flamethrowers (which we never see actually used against the creature), the relative threat was much greater than it would be to an armed squad of state-of-the- art Marines. One, crazed man with a knife can be the most terrifying thing you can imagine if you happen to be unarmed and locked in a house alone with him. If you're with 10 armed police officers, it's a different story.

We set out to make a different type of film, not just retell the same story in a different way. The Aliens are terrifying in their overwhelming force of numbers. The dramatic situations emerging from characters under stress can work just as well in an Alamo or Zulu Dawn as they can in a Friday the 13th, with its antagonist.

Jim Ficken discusses plot lines for ALIEN III but I can't comment, since Gale Hurd, the producer of ALIENS, and myself have decided to move on to other things and leave a third film to others.

Ben Smith asks where the Aliens originated. In dialogue, I have Ripley specifically telling a member of the inquiry board, "I already told you, it was not indigenous, it was a derelict spacecraft, an alien ship, it was not from there." That seems clear enough. Don't ask me where it was from... there are some things man was not meant to know. Presumably, the derelict pilot (space jockey, big dental patient, etc.) became infected en route to somewhere and set down on the barren planetoid to isolate the dangerous creatures, setting up the warning beacon as his last act. What happened to the creature that emerged from him? Ask Ridley. As to the purpose of the Alien... I think that's clear. They're just trying to make a living, same as us. It's not their fault that they happen to be disgusting parasitical predators, any more than a black widow spider or a cobra can be blamed for its biological nature.

David R. Larson makes some interesting comments and yes, the design of the "warrior" adult was altered slightly. His rationale for this is as good as mine (that the individual in ALIEN never reached maturity).

Daniel Line asks more questions about the derelict which, as a writer, I could provide plausible answers for, but they're no more valid than anyone else's. Clearly, the dental patient was a sole crew member on a one-man ship. Perhaps his homeworld did know of his demise but felt it was pointless to rescue a doomed person. Perhaps he was a volunteer or a draftee on the hazardous mission of bio-isolating these organisms. Perhaps he was a military pilot, delivering the alien eggs as a bio-weapon in some ancient interstellar war humans know nothing of, and got infected inadvertently. "How could the man who went onto the derelict not know something was wrong when he saw the dead gunner?" Well, Dallas, Kane and Lambert saw the dead gunner and that didn't stop them. Human curiosity is a powerful force. As for the equipment left behind by the Nostromo crew being a deterrent, this requires that Jorden and the other colonists enter the derelict through the Freudian main door. In ALIENS gong version), they enter through a large rent in the hull caused by damage from the lava flow, going directly into the egg chamber level.

Abbas Rezvi takes exception to Ripley's ease of adjustment to 57 years of technological change. First of all, ask yourself if an intelligent and willful person from 1930 could or could not adapt to the technology of 1987, given a few months of training. They had automobiles (including traffic jams), machine guns and aeroplanes then, only the specifics are different now. Conversely, however, who could have dreamed of the impact of computers and video on our current environment? A second point is that there have been 57-year periods in history where little or no social or technological change took place, due to religious repression, war, plague or other factors. Perhaps technology had topped out or plateaued before the Nostromo's flight, and the changes upon Ripley's return were not great. You decide. It doesn't bother Ripley, and it doesn't bother me. I hope this answers a few of your readers' concerns. I would like to thank STARLOG for its support of our film through articles ("Viva Vasquez"), movie books, etc. We'll keep you posted on upcoming projects, several of which are science fiction.

By the way, it's not in the goddam cat and it's not in Newt, either. I would never be that cruel.

How many Atmosphere Processing Plants do you need to make a 12,201 km breathable?

I'd think you'd need 50-100? Maybe more?  I can't imagine just 1 APP doing the job? LV426 is nearly the size of Earth!

And how convenient that they happened to build the only APP on the moon/planet within driving distance(within FAMILY driving distance lol) of the Derelict. LV426 is 178 million Square Miles. Not any oceans, so you can build your APP anywhere.

Now....If there were hundreds of these APP's dotted on the surface...Then I might see one being placed near the derelict(100 miles).

Maybe the colonists of Hadley's Hope travels out to these APP's every couple of months for maintenance(in a drop ship!)...I could envision one of these trips is how they encountered the derelict.

LV-426 has a diameter of 1200km.  The Aliens script has Burke mention "thirty or so" APs, and while this is never mentioned in the film, the 'River of Pain' novel mentions more than one AP.

@xeno_alpha - Has it ever been established if the Pete Briggs in the Starlog letters column is THE Pete Briggs?  It has to be right?

MonsterZeroAug-11-2016 5:28 PM

Cool. Thanks S.M

Clears up a lot. (of course the surface gravity of such a small world would be 1/10(or near that) of Earth's and they would float around..but that's another comment)

S.MAug-11-2016 5:46 PM

Yeah that's always been a little contentious.  A 1200km diameter planet with 0.86 gravity (probably why LBW multiplied it by 10 for the Colonial Marines Tech Manual.  For the Weyland Yutani Report we went back to the source material as written and quoted in the Alien : Directors Cut).

Alan Dean Foster hints at an explanation in the Alien novelisation where Dallas (I think) tells Kane and Ash not to tell Parker and Brett about the planet's composition otherwise they'll go off prospecting for heavy metals instead of doing the repairs.

@SM - Not too sure, to be honest.  I've never really looked into seeing whether it's THE Briggs or not.  Might have to do some digging if I can. 

BigDaveAug-12-2016 6:38 AM

SM as always great factual answer....

While Alien shows one, Burke hints to many and the book does state so... and so just because we see the one in the movie does not mean there is just one.

Also yes LV-426 is a small Moon, i think its about nearly a 3rd size of our Moon well 10X smaller than Earth.

As far as "And how convenient that they happened to build the only APP on the moon/planet within driving distance(within FAMILY driving distance lol) of the Derelict. LV426 is 178 million Square Miles. Not any oceans, so you can build your APP anywhere."

Its just coinsidence.... thats needed to drive the Plot as if the Derelict was located further away then we would maybe not have had Aliens movie... (but potential is for further exploration on the world to find the Derelict).

But in general yes, its supposed to be to allow the Plot to run along nicely.... we could ask the same with Prometheus in that what are the chances by Luck that the set down the Ship right in the Valley of those Temples.

But nice article and agree with the OP totally, nice ways to explain some gripes/plot holes that some may have wit the Movie.

Cameron sounded a little arrogant, defensive and bitchy in his replies to me.  As if, this is really obvious but I'll explain it to you morons.  And, this is what I decided, so who are you to question it.  A little condescending if you ask me. 

I don't buy his explanations.  For instance, the Aliens themselves were watered-down versions of the Giger original.  I'm sure this was to mass-produced them for his swarm type concepts.  The concept of the queen, explained in earth "entomology" doesn't cut it with me.  This isn't some giant insect you can just throw wild-ass guesses at.  The queen has no bearing on the Prometheus fall from grace theory, and detracts from the over-all story, IMHO. 

In fact, Cameron lamely states that no one knows from whence they came, like no one cares as well.  I think Prometheus disproves that theory.  In fact, I think Prometheus will prove to be the central focus of the whole saga.

I think it illustrates what these hollywood types are all about.  He cared nothing for continuity of the story; rather he wanted to go off in another direction to showcase his talents and brilliance.  He shows disdain for the hard core fans and states he's basically pandering to the lowest common denominator.

In fact this is the same problem we had with A:3 and A:R; the producer/directors wanted to place their own mark on the story, versus giving us any kind of continuity to it. 

The ONLY thing he got right was finally sending some pipe-hitters into outer space to deal with this thing.  But making them Viet-Nam era caricatures of grunts only dates him and Hollywood's disdain for the military from this era.

Thank god Ridley has returned to develop/re-shape the story these other directors took in such crappy directions.

I got the LV426 moon info from http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Acheron_(LV-426)

States the moon is

Diameter

12,201 km

I'll stop using the internet to get facts! lol

Prometheus coming from orbit and just happening upon the temples on LV223 is also insane! That's not going to happen....But I give them slack cause they state: they found some anomalies or something just before they start their search ...probably saw some surface scans and heading in the general direction?

Its great to be reminded 30 years later how James Cameron positioned the movie.

I recall enjoying Aliens and I do not recall continuity issues "popping". At some point I do remember thinking the only way to take this forward is to go back and look at why the derelict and the jockey. I think for JC to make the film the way he did ignoring a mythos direction and simply enlarging the problematic nature of the creature worked well and there were enough unique story telling points.

With the Queen he went "bigger and better" except for me that entire section with the discovery of the hive even back then represented artistic jeopardy and for me  is only saved by Ripley's pre occupations and "performance".

@Diz Your concern about the routine solution for the Eggs vis a vis the rich tapestry which has begun with Prometheus actually reminds me of how Ridley has been so successful in repositioning what had become a fairly routine franchise operation which in artistic terms was suffering the law of diminishing returns.

"The concept of the queen, explained in earth "entomology" doesn't cut it with me.  This isn't some giant insect you can just throw wild-ass guesses at. "

They were influenced by insects on the first film.  It's okay for them, but not for Cameron?

"In fact, Cameron lamely states that no one knows from whence they came, like no one cares as well.  I think Prometheus disproves that theory.  In fact, I think Prometheus will prove to be the central focus of the whole saga."

It wasn't in his remit to tell us where they came from though.  nd I'm not sure I'm following - are you suggesting Cameron should've been guided by a film that wouldn't be conceived for another 25 years?

AortaAug-12-2016 2:55 PM

It's easy for some (like me) to be derisive of JC, his attitude and stance can read as arrogance, and in this case it's especially off putting given he put his personal stamp on a beloved property.

I applaud him for taking the time to engage his public, but I can see how some of his comments seem dismissive of the source material. He was also politely dismissive of Prometheus, when given his obvious powers of articulation he could have been neutral and left it at that.

This is magnified by his recent hands down praise of Blomkamp's script, which, given the very shaky premise, has got to be a-freakin-mazing to earn such kudos from a world class film maker. Or does it? It's hard to imagine that it is, time will tell.

Yes, the insect world was referenced in Alien. I think the complaint here is that JC's referencing was a tad more literal and robbed the biology of its mystery. Plus, there is the camp that prefers war films and that that does not, and for them Aliens is less adult and more predictable.

DizAug-13-2016 2:52 PM

Aorta said it better than me.  Yeah, I'm a fan of Ridley Scott.  And yeah, I don't like JC's interpretation/development of the story.

That being said, I think JC pushed the bug thing too far with the queen concept.  We had "eggs", that from deleted scenes were cacooned victims waiting to be rendered down.  These turned into facehuggers which needed to deposit a seed of some sort down a victims throat in order to develop.  Now all of a sudden you have a "queen" that develops egg sacs with facehuggers in them? Why wouldn't they just be creatures that developed in their own egg sac? That whole line is too closely tied to our bugs, as Aorta stated, instead of the alien life cycle of a zeno.  So although both Ridley and JC may have used bug biology as a basis, adding the queen was step too far, IMHO. 

As to his being in-step, or not, with current theory, vis-a-vis Prometheus.  That's a self-licking ice cream cone.  If he hadn't gone off on a tangent about the queen angle, then he wouldn't be out of step with what Ridley is trying to do now with Prometheus and A:C.  Whether he could see that or not 25 years later is not the issue.  It is the fact that he chose to go in such a different direction with Aliens that it no longer ties in with what Ridley was originally doing, and trying resurrect, after JC and others went off into the weeds.

So no, maybe it wasn't his remit to explain origins of engineers, space jockeys, et al, but, maybe he could have stayed closer to the original story of the alien life cycle. 

And I find it interesting that he basically is dissing Ridely with his Prometheus comments, and pimping up Blomkamp's work.  That kinda tells me what he thinks of Ridley and his original story.  And pretty much proves what I've been trying to say.  JC had no respect for the original story and went off on a tangent to make this Mom-vs-Mom smack down event, because making a big movie and probably showing up Ridley was the goal.   

S.MAug-13-2016 3:04 PM

And yet, the Foreward to Aliens - The Illustrated Screenplay has paragraph after paragraph of gushing about Ridley and Aliens, written by Cameron.  'All the Alien sequels - mine included - stood on the back of a giant'.

He set out to do homage to the original but still be a piece of entertainment in its own right, and judging from the reception, was very successful.

The fact he pimps up Blomkamps script is a no brainer.

DizAug-13-2016 3:05 PM

10

Also to Aorta's comment about introducing the mil-spec angle.  Yeah, I get it, some folks abhor violence, the military, etc.  BUT I think in this case it was probably the best thing JC did in this movie.  The concept was sound; the execution a little sketchy.  That they resembled Hollywood's version of a bunch of Viet-Nam era draftees, instead of professional grade contractors, yeah that's on him.  But again to some folks there's no difference.  I beg to differ, but that's another subject.    

S.MAug-13-2016 3:18 PM

From memory he admitted the Vietnam draftee vs professional thing on the commentary track, considering Aliens had Vietnam allegory in it anyway.

DizAug-14-2016 5:26 AM

10

Yeah I think these guys reserve the right to praise or MF each other, as friendships/alliances shift in tinsel town.  Probably depends on what's best for them at the moment.

And yeah the Viet-nam thing.  All through the 80's you saw these movies drawing their inspiration from the images of that conflict.  It wasn't until the "Battle of the Black Sea" aka "Blackhawk Down" that we saw the beginning of the modern era and the GWOT. 

I could go on about that but suffice it to say, the overall quality of soldier as depicted from the VN era is very low.  To use that snapshot in time as a basis for future warriors is lazy at best, and wildly inaccurate at worst.

Suffice it to say, I don't like JC's work in this case, although it was a wildly successful movie.  So yeah, he's laughing all the way to the bank and couldn't give a shite what I think.

So, yeah, SM cheers mate.

"One admittedly confusing aspect of this creature's behaviour (which was unclear as well in ALIEN) is the fact that sometimes the warrior will capture prey for a host, and other times, simply kill it."

Dear Mr. Cameron,

As the Directors Cut of A L I E N clearly shows, it doesn't matter if the victim is alive [Dallas], or dead [Brett], they are both considered viable hosts and the outcome = egg-morph!

LoneAug-14-2016 9:11 AM

39

A L I E N S should actually have been called BUGS!

Cameron's insect-creatures, and indeed the military-this-time-it's-war-plot, has more in common with Gordon Douglas' 1954 classic, THEM!, than with Ridley Scott's A L I E N.

A L I E N S creatures were devoid of that Fear of The Unknown factor, which made the MORB so terrifying. Cameron made the lifecycle too familiar with that of Earthbound insects. They are not MORBS, they are Bugs!

S.MAug-14-2016 3:13 PM

0

Mid-Ocean-Ridge Basalt?  How do you make it 'fear of the unknown' when everyone saw exactly what the Alien looked like at the end of the first film? Besides Cameron used different camera, performance and editing techniques to keep us from ever really getting a good look at the creatures, beyond close ups of teeth.

"As the Directors Cut of A L I E N clearly shows, it doesn't matter if the victim is alive [Dallas], or dead [Brett], they are both considered viable hosts and the outcome = egg-morph!"

So not only is he beholden to concepts that didn't appear on screen - he is beholden to a different version of the film released 17 years later.

"I don't like JC's work in this case"

You hide it well. :)

LoneAug-14-2016 3:27 PM

Don't pretend that you don't understand my use of MORB!

Yes, we saw what it looked like, but it remained mysterious, we didn't know exactly what it was, nor what it was capable of. It was scary, unlike the bugs in Aliens!

So, if it's OK for Cameron to refer to his Special Edition by way of explanation, and he does many times in the interview. Then why can't I refer to the Alien Director's Cut?

 

LoneAug-14-2016 3:31 PM

39

I'm pretty sure James Cameron would have known of the existence of the deleted scene long before we did!

S.MAug-14-2016 5:33 PM

Of course he did.  Many fans would've been aware of it too from reading the novelisation.  Most punters however, didn't.  And that was his audience.

"So, if it's OK for Cameron to refer to his Special Edition by way of explanation, and he does many times in the interview. Then why can't I refer to the Alien Director's Cut?"

It not really comparing apples with apples.  You don't need Special Edition material for Aliens to work as a complete entity, so him clearing up background details is really neither here nor there.

Referring to a Directors Cut that Cameron had no way of knowing would be released and neither Fox nor Brandywine cared if deleted material was referenced or not, doesn't make for a strong argument.  It's like saying he should've predicted and allowed for Prometheus.

Egg morphing versus the queen:

 

I think that it would have been interesting to see egg morphing in Aliens but I might understand why they chose what they did. Making the queen a part of alien were maybe an easier path to take? Perhaps there is something close to egg morphing in nature, not that I am aware of something like it but it seems interesting. The queen isn't a disaster but they could have made it more interesting but at least it has something that you can compare it to in nature.

 

Perhaps it was a bad idea to have a queen since it makes it more familiar and removes some of the mystery about it. They could probably have made a better alternative compared to what became the final result.

 

As far as the scare factor goes between Alien and Aliens I think that they could have used more of it in Aliens since it was mostly an action movie. 1 and 2 belong in different categories if you ask me.

 

Perhaps they could use some egg morphing in Alien Covenant. I am not sure how the development from egg morphing to a queen would develop but what ever.

Simple solution - hosts morphed into eggs produce facehuggers that implant Queens.
