John Travers is back in space.
The director of the acclaimed 1980s sci-fi space movie Abandoned In Space has said he’s not regretting going to the movies to see The Next Gen, the upcoming sci-Fi sci-fiestur film that he says was “the greatest movie ever made.”
Travers told Deadline he had to be at work on Abandon in Space before it premiered on Friday and had to “re-examine” his relationship with the movie.
“The film was the best thing that ever happened to me,” said Travers, who is no longer working on the upcoming The Next Generation, but still stars in the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery.
“I went to the theater.
I got a ticket to see it.
And I was in the theater for two days.
That was it.”
Traverse said he was “horrified” at the film’s depiction of space, and it became the most successful sci-fx film of all time.
“That was the biggest film I’ve ever made,” he said.
“But I had a lot of reservations about it.
It’s a very complicated film, and I had reservations about what it was going to be like in the future, because it was so much farther away than any of my previous films.”
Traves also said he had “a great time” working on Abydos, a documentary about the first human to venture into space.
“They have to do this, they have to get out of here, and they’re going to do something incredible,” he told Deadline.
“There’s no way I’m not going to go back and do this.
That’s my goal.
It was so fun to make that movie.
But I had to take some time away.”
Travell also said that he didn’t want to revisit Abynos because he felt it would be a waste of time and money.
“It was like I wanted to get it over with and be done with it,” he explained.
“And I don’t regret it at all.
It worked out.
I think it was a good movie, but it didn’t work out.”
Trave has also spoken out against the current state of science fiction.
“This genre is dying, and we’re going in the opposite direction,” he added.
“Science fiction is dying.
I love science fiction and I think there’s some great films out there.
But it’s not what we want.
We want the movies.”
