I have to admit that the trailer for Iron Sky got me excited, but for some reason or another I have never actually seen the film. The concept looked so ridiculously fun and pulpy, with the Nazis setting up a secret base on the dark side of the moon in 1945 where they hide out and built a space fleet to return in 2018 and conquer Earth. But it doesn’t seem like I missed much as the 2012 Finnish-Australian-German film was not liked by both critics and moviegoers alike (6.0 user rating on IMDb and 36% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes). But the film was an international cult hit, spawning a comic book prequel (Iron Sky: Bad Moon Rising), a video game (Iron Sky: Invasion), a board game (Iron Sky: The Board Game), and a feature film sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race.
And now like the original film, the filmmakers have released the Iron Sky The Coming Race trailer, a promo trailer for a film which doesn’t yet exist. The sequel is hoping to film in 2015 with a budget of $15 million (about $5 million more than the first film) and the project is currently on Indiegogo trying to raise the $500,000 they need for pre-production. So you can now “make history” and pre-buy the 2016 movie now and help it get made.
The Iron Sky: The Coming Race trailer promises that “Nazis on the moon was just scraping the surface” and “the ugly truth about mankind is about to be revealed”. What could this truth world be? Set twenty years after World War III, the survivors must fight against Adolf Hitler & his army of dinosaurs. Thats right, Hitler rides his own Tyrannosaurus Rex into battle in the new film. Watch the Iron Sky The Coming Race trailer now embedded after the jump.

Iron Sky, the jokey movie in which Earth is invaded by a Nazi colony that hid for decades on the dark side fo the moon, is finally out in the wild. Or in nature preserves, at least: it premiered at the Berlin Film festival, and then played SXSW in the past week. Reviews haven’t been great so far, with The Guardian delivering a real blow: “not terrible, by any means: just not nearly as funny or cruel as its killer premise suggests.” For a film based on an outrageous premise and with the promise of real lunacy, that’s not a good note.
We’ve seen trailers and small clips, and now the first four minutes have been released online. The scenes show how a lunar expedition stumbles across a Nazi mining effort on the moon, and leads into the introduction of the massive Nazi base. Check out the clip below to get a better idea of what the movie looks like. Read More »
Be it Sundance, Toronto or South by Southwest, some of the most exciting films to play in any film festival these days are part of the midnight line up. That’s where festivals feel comfortable playing the over the top genre stuff and, last year, SXSW’s midnight schedule included films like Attack the Block, Insidious and Kill List. Now the 2012 schedule has been announced.
The main schedule is already cool enough, featuring the world premieres of fantastic films like The Cabin in the Woods and 21 Jump Street, but at midnight, they’re adding to that with the world premieres of [REC] 3: Genesis, Girls Against Boys and The Tall Man with Jessica Biel. They’ll also screen the awesome anthology V/H/S, John Dies at the End and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Intruders with Clive Owen, just to name a few.

Germany isn’t all that keen on movies that could possible promote Nazi sensibility. While the tongue-in-cheek sci-fi war movie Iron Sky, in which Nazis attack Earth from a secret base housed on the dark side of the moon, can’t possibly be construed as a pro-Nazi movie, it is still a bit remarkable that the film will premiere next month at the Berlin Film Festival.
Iron Sky is a partially crowd-funded indie that has been really big on web-based PR over the past couple years. But the film is finished, and the teaser trailers that have been released over the last year or so are now complimented by a full trailer, which also trumpets the Berlin premiere. Check it out below.

We haven’t covered Iron Sky much, despite the fact that it is a sci-fi comedy about Nazis attacking Earth from their base on the moon. We haven’t done a lot of coverage because there hasn’t been much to cover besides a pre-production teaser and the basic concept itself. But now the production has shot some footage for the film, which is being financed piecemeal. A teaser has been assembled so you can get an idea of what to expect from the very high-concept flick. Check it out after the break. Read More »
