How the failed Dune movie you never saw gave birth to Prometheus

Today we're happy to introduce our new digital series, BlastrTV.

Hosted by Andrea Feczko, BlastrTV will stream to you here, as well as on Syfy's XBox Live app and on the Blastr mobile and tablet apps. This first episode tells the crazy, almost unbelievable story of how if it weren't for Alejandro Jodorowsky's insane attempt to make a feature film based on Frank Herbert's Dune in the 1970s we wouldn't have the Alien franchise ... or Prometheus.

As you'll see, it's a rather twisty tale.


And if you'd like your very own copy of the Prometheus Family Tree, it's yours for the taking here:


Let us know what you think in the comments, and stay tuned for more episodes in the coming weeks.
