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.
Towards the end of World War II the Nazi scientists made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.
Now it’s 2018, and it’s the time for the first American Moon landing since the 70?s. Meanwhile the Nazi invasion, that has been over 70 years in the making, is on its way, and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom. The three main characters of the story are Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), Klaus Adler (Götz Otto), and James Washington (Christopher Kirby).
