As an innovative director and producer, Ridley Scott remains one of the most influential creative minds in sci-fi filmmaking. He has launched enormously successful franchises, like Alien in the late 70s, which are still lauded and carry weight to this day.
Like other successful and cutting-edge directors, Ridley Scott has carved out a niche for himself in his filmmaking capabilities, setting a standard for future movies in the sci-fi genre. Without his novel ideas and design, movies about space and futuristic societies would be an entirely different domain.
But Scott is by no means just a director from the past. The director is still involved in high-profile Hollywood productions, like his critically-acclaimed sci-fi film The Martian.
