Heavy Metal Magazine

So, anyway, the movie is based upon a comic magazine, called Heavy Metal, which was based upon a French version, called Metal Hurlant. Well, I just learned that Heavy Metal magazine sold, to relaunch as bigger brand. Click the link to read all about it.
To me, this is very exciting news. Heavy Metal magazine redefined art, and what was acceptable, and what was exceptional. It was more a movement than a magazine, spawning two movies in its time, and launching the careers of some if the greatest film makers, and graphic artists there are in recent years.

I can't even believe season one is over, because it still hasn't made its way to America, even though it was filmed in English, and has some big North American stars, like Michael Jai White, Joe Flanigan and Matt Mullins, also including the likes of Rutger Hauer, Michelle Ryan and Kelly Brooke.
To read more about it, as well as see the trailer, check out the productions companies website, WE Productions. Or, check out Metal Hurlant Chronicles on Facebook.
Game of Thrones
On top of all that, if you're a Game of Thrones fan, and why wouldn't you be, season four begins, on April 6, on HBO, and you can see the Game of Thrones Season 4 Trailer, here. It looks like it's going to be another epic season.

Polypore, An Independent Film
I also wanted to give a heads up on an independent science fiction thriller, called Polypore that I just stumbled upon. You can find out more about it on the Polypore homepage, as well as take a look at the trailer. The home page and the trailer don't give away too much, other than that it's a science fiction thriller, with deep characters, with telepathy and teleportation, but it looks interesting none-the-less. You can rent the entire film for $1.99.
