Exclusive Preview: Syfy's Metal Hurlant Chronicles

On Monday, April 14, at 8Pm, Syfy will be premiering its newest series, "Metal Hurlant Chronicles". The show is imported from French company We Productions and follows the sci-fi anthology Metal Hurlant, better known in the United States as Heavy Metal.

We got a sneak peek and will let you know what to expect.

The episode Syfy shared with Dread Central is "King's Crown," based on a bloody tournament being held to determine the new king as the previous ruler is nearing death.

The episode is absolutely loaded with awesome fighting action featuring Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins. The athleticism and choreography displayed in the various dueling scenes is easily worth the price of admission here.

Aside from the fighting, which is obviously the centerpiece of the episode, the acting is okay and the digital effects are very good at times, but not always consistent. There are a few spots

Syfy Releases New Trailer For Pick-Up 'Metal Hurlant Chronicles' Season 1 + Sets April Premiere Date (Michael Jai White Stars)

Syfy Releases New Trailer For Pick-Up 'Metal Hurlant Chronicles' Season 1 + Sets April Premiere Date (Michael Jai White Stars)
A month ago, Syfy announced that it had acquired the first two seasons of French fantasy/action series Metal Hurlant. The series premiered on French television on October 27, 2012 on France 4, and soon after, broadcast rights for various European countries such as Germany, Austria, Luxembourg were bought, but no USA rep. At the time, I fully expected that, with a handful of actors recognizable to American audiences, it would surely be available to USA audiences a lot sooner; but better late than never. Recapping... Announced at the MIPCom (the annual TV and entertainment market held in Cannes in October) in 2011, Michael Jai White co-stars (alongside Rutger Hauer, Scott Adkins, Joe Flanigan and James Marsters) in a live-action TV series adaptation of the Métal Hurlant Chronicles fantasy comics magazine. Eriq Ebouaney (likely best know in the west as the star of Raoul Peck's Patrice Lumumba biopic) is part of the supporting cast.

Syfy Acquires French Fantasy Series 'Métal Hurlant' For USA TV (Michael Jai White Stars)

Syfy Acquires French Fantasy Series 'Métal Hurlant' For USA TV (Michael Jai White Stars)
Likely a perfect fit. I've previously shared that I thought Syfy should pick up the series for American TV, and they now have done so. It hasn't aired in the USA, nor has it been available on any format accessible to USA audiences. In fact, it had previously only released in a select few countries. And now Syfy has acquired the first two seasons of French fantasy/action series Metal Hurlant. The series premiered on French television on October 27, 2012 on France 4, and soon after, broadcast rights for various European countries such as Germany, Austria, Luxembourg were bought, but no USA rep.

Top 100: Greatest sci-fi characters of all time

To mark the launch of its new game, Stratego Sci-Fi has surveyed more than 2,000 Britons to chart the Stratego Sci-Fi 100 – the nation’s top 100 stars of the sci-fi world – as well as a separate poll charting the best sci-fi battles from the silver screen – and has crowned Superman the greatest sci-fi character of all time

Following up the Man of Steel in 2nd place in the Stratego Sci-Fi 100 was Harrison Ford’s gruff but lovable rogue Han Solo, with Frank Oz’s jedi master Yoda coming third, both representing Star Wars in the top three and rounding it out firmly in George Lucas’ favour. Steven Spielberg’s E.T may be one of the most lovable characters of all time, but only made it to fourth in the list, followed by Will Smith’s Agent Jay from the hugely popular Men in Black series at number five.
