Cameron hopes sequels flop
Movie-maker James Cameron treats his fellow directors as fierce competition - even when they are working on a sequel to one of his films.
The Titanic director has seen several rivals take on follow-ups to his movies, including Jonathan Mostow and McG - who directed Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation respectively - as well as David Fincher, who stepped behind the camera for Alien 3.
But Cameron admits he finds it hard to root for his rivals - and often hopes their efforts to extend his original movies fail.
He tells ShortList magazine, "You definitely want to see them not do as well. With Terminator 3 and 4, because Arnold (Schwarzenegger) and Sam (Worthington) were in them, I wanted them to do well, but just not that well!
"With Alien 3, I love David Fincher, but I thought killing off the characters that people had rooted for in the second (movie) wasn't a wise decision."
