"Avatar" director James Cameron's latest project takes audiences back to the humble beginnings of science fiction movies, long before films like "Star Wars" sold billions of dollars worth of tickets and dominated popular culture. In a six-part documentary series that debuts on U.S. cable network AMC Monday, Cameron explores the B-movies of the 1950s, space and alien films of the 1960s, and post-apocalyptic thrillers of the 1970s.Everything changed with "Star Wars" in 1977, which became the highest-grossing domestic film in history at the time and sent film studios scrambling to imitate it.Today, movies grounded in science fiction are among the biggest box office draws.Cameron argued that science fiction is now more relevant than ever as humans become more dependent on machines.
