Hollywood isn’t a place awash with honesty. It’s a business. So a lot of business calculations go everything people say. But in a rare moment of (possibly accidental) candor, Ridley Scott revealed he’s never seen Alien vs. Predator. The comment came on the Friday edition of the Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode Film Program. Ridley was discussing the fact that the “space jockey” mystery had never been dealt with in any sequels. He was discussing the fact that he’s seen all the films, when he added:
Then I watched …. couldn’t really watch Alien vs. Predator.
It was a refreshing moment. Perhaps not that brave when you’re attempting to launch a new Alien related franchise. But still refreshing.
