Heavy Metal Magazine inspired more airbrushed murals on vans in the 70’s and was the first animated film I watched that I shouldn’t have. I say I shouldn’t have because I was 10. It aired on the Canadian Movie Channel “First Choice” and I was stunned and struck with awe at the imagery and …. well boobies.
This movie spent the better part of the next decade BANNED in Canada. Animation was too easily mistaken as a children’s program and our negligent parents just let us watch anything that was animated. This broke the rules. When it was unbanned, it immediately joined my VHS (now DVD) collection and continued to inspire my sci-fi creativeness (and music) through the 90s.
The film will consist of eight or nine individual animated segments, each of which will be directed by a different director.
Fincher will direct one of the segments; Kevin Eastman, the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” co-creator who is now owner and publisher of Heavy Metal, will direct another. So will Tim Miller, whose Blur Studios will handle the animation for what is being conceived as an R-rated, adult-themed feature.
Doug will be disappointed that this is not tentacle porn, but dammit it is about time for another Heavy Metal Movie. I need me some racy violent animation dammit!!
Nearly 20 years after the first another Heavy Metal movie was made, but this one revolved around a single storyline unlike its predecessor which featured a number of shorts tied through narrative as one film.
It looks like we wont have to wait for another 20th anniversary to get another one, and thankfully they are returning to what made the first film a success. Emulating the Magazine.
I look forward to seeing what they come up with this time.
User comment: By: HaoleI agree that the first one is classic, but the second just didn't have the magic or humor.
