Battle Beyond the Stars is an American 1980 science fiction film directed by Jimmy T. Murakami and produced by Roger Corman. The film, intended as a “Magnificent Seven in outer space,” is a pastiche of The Magnificent Seven, the Western remake of Akira Kurosawa’s film Seven Samurai. The screenplay was written by John Sayles, the score was composed by James Horner, and the special effects were directed by James Cameron. Several of the effects shots and clips were re-used for other films throughout the 1980s, including Bachelor Party, while the spaceship model was re-used in the film Space Raiders. The film was later picked up by Shout! Factory, who released it on DVD and Blu-ray in 2011 as part of the “Roger Corman’s Cult Classics” series. Roger Corman hired James Cameron as a model maker in his studio, and after the original art director for the film had been fired, Cameron became responsible for the special effects in Battle Beyond the Stars, or, as Cameron later put it, “production design and art direction.” This was Cameron’s first “big break” in the entertainment industry, and it helped propel his career. He was recommended by Gale Anne Hurd who was then working for Corman. While Cameron initially worked on camera rigging, he soon started working on special effects, and designed spaceship’s corridors, for instance, out of spray-painted McDonald’s containers. Cameron paid great attention to detail, and hardly slept for weeks while working on the film; however, his hard work paid off, opening the door for his later success.
