How long does it take for a movie about Space Hitler and dinosaurs to make it to the big screen? Too long, it seems. Iron Sky: The Coming Race has been in the works for two years and had already released a trailer last year, but finally (blissfully), this baffling sequel will go on to theaters. Kind of.

Iron Sky, which followed two American astronauts who land on the moon only to find it occupied by the descendants of Nazis who escaped in 1945, was a movie that existed. And now, a sequel to the 2012 cult hit is going to be released. With more space Nazis. Oh, and dinosaurs this time.

Update: A new promo teaser has been released for the Iron Sky sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race. While the first Iron Sky The Coming Race trailer showed Adolf Hitler riding a T-Rex, the new promo teaser shows a zombie jesus breaking free from the cross and going on a machine gun rampage. Seems like the filmmakers behind Iron Sky are selling the movie on fun ridiculous politically incorrect imagery not for the easily offend-able, and I’m fine with that. Watch both clips 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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
