The brain-bending, eye-bulging animated mindbomb Fantastic Planet is the ultimate sci-fi head trip to another world. Set on the futuristic planet of Ygam, a humanoid race rebels against their giant blue oppressors. René Laloux’s surreal counterculture classic is unlike anything before or since, combining jaw-dropping (and laborious) cut-out animation by Roland Topor and a psychedelic score by Alain Goraguer to create a strange, spellbinding masterwork that will flip your lid.

Buckle up for a cult movie rite of passage, an animated anthology that beautifully expands the boundaries of science fiction and fantasy while gratuitously pushing the limits of sex, violence and rock ‘n roll! From the dystopian NYC of 2031 to the outer limits of space, following warrior maidens, hulking barbarians, glowing orbs and more, Heavy Metal is stoned, funky, funny and far out with a raging soundtrack, pitch-perfect voice acting, tons of cartoon nudity, graphic gore, drugs and profanity. We guarantee it’s as loud and nasty as ever!
