Born into a military family in the North of England in 1937, Ridley Scott worked his way into the film industry via an apprenticeship at the BBC and a successful commercials company that he founded with his brother Tony. After making his feature film debut with The Duellists in 1977, his unique vision transformed a B-movie project into the seminal sci-fi opus Alien in 1979, and he followed that with the futuristic Blade Runner in 1982, from a short story by Philip K Dick. Since then, his films have been many and varied, from the commercial failures of Legend (1985) and Conquest of Paradise (1992) to the Oscar-winning Thelma and Louise (1991) and box-office hit Gladiator (2000). Along the way, he has produced as well as directed, and he remains to this day the most prolific filmmaker in Britain; among his latest ventures are Alien: Covenant and All the Money in the World, an account of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III. Ridley Scott: Promethean is an exhaustive study of the man and his films, which brings the Scott story bang up to date.
