HOLLYWOOD SPY SPOTLIGHT ON SF EPIC "IRON SKY" IN WHICH THE NAZIS INVADE EARTH FROM THEIR SECRET BASE ON THE MOON!

One of the most interesting projects which has been trying to finish its production for some time now, has apparently finally found enough money to finish shooting thanks to a very wise marketing campaign in which the trailer for the unfinished film has attracted the attention of millions of people around the net and the film will now finally premier at Berlin Film Festival. It's a Finnish film shot in English called IRON SKY a mix of visually spectacular sf action with elements of comedy, which brings up an idea that Nazis had escaped to Moon where they've built up their space station and are now planning to invade us again.

IRON SKY STORY
Here's the official plot: 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.
IRON SKY TIDBITS
The film already has almost 100,000 followers at Facebook and it is interesting that they've gathered half a million euros from fans and followers to finish the last stage of the production. The three main characters of the story are Renate Richter (Julia Dietze),Klaus Adler
(Götz Otto from SCHINDLER'S LIST, TOMORROW NEVER DIES, SKYFALL), and James Washington (Christopher Kirby from THE MATRIX). Music for the film is composed by Slovenian industrial metal band Laibach. IRON SKY is a science fiction comedy being
produced by Blind Spot Pictures and Energia Productions in Finland, and co-produced by 27 Films in Germany and New Holland Pictures in Australia. It was shot in Germany and Australia. There's also a comic book based on the Moon Nazi movie.

    3. I'm not sure how much of a comedy this will be, I thought it would be a serious sf film until I saw the blond bimbo in the trailer.

    2. he he :)
      I also had a thought if making a film with Nazis, but a fun one, is a right thing. It could hurt all those who lost so many and so much in the war :( I'd personally never do it if I was a director.

  7. Nice how they actually got the money to finish it, not having to sell their soul to some crappy studio. Interesting premise too, definitely original.
