The classic pulp comics mag Heavy Metal is finally getting its own TV show... in France. Behold the first sex and violence-stuffed trailer for the new series. Syfy, it's time to stop production on Lake Placid 8 and pony up the cash to air this in the US of A!

Officially titled Metal Hurlant Chronicles the show includes Rutger Hauer and James Marsters, so score one for French Metal-heads. Also expect storylines from past contributors such as Moebius, Geoff Johns and Alejandro Jodorowsky — which is straight-up awesome. Fingers crossed this gets picked up for U.S. airing at some point.
