The curators at MoPOP were honored to act as consultants on AMC's new show AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, airing Mondays 10/9c starting April 30.
The show is an in-depth look at the many places, creatures, and philosophies that make up the genre, but it's not the only new release coming out. A companion book of the same name hits stores May 1.
AMC has graciously given us an advanced copy, and we want to give it to you! This book, filled with interviews with genre heavy-weights like Ridley Scott, Guillermo del Toro, and George Lucas, takes a deeper dive into the show's themes of alien life, time travel, and more.
One of our favorite debates around the MoPOP offices comes from talking about sci-fi characters, storylines, and plots. Are you team Janeway or Picard? Would you wield a lightsaber or keep a blaster at your side?
But for this contest, we're talking Terminators.
If you ran Skynet, would you go with the classic T-800 or take the updated T-1000? Choose between the cyborg assassin and his shape-shifting mimetic polyalloy update. The winner will be randomly selected May 1!
