Beware of Moon Nazis: Official Trailer for IRON SKY

     February 8, 2012


Iron Sky has one of those nutty premises I absolutely love.  The story is that Nazis landed on the moon 70 years ago and have been biding their time to launch an invasion.  They decide they’ve been waiting long enough, take to their fleet of flying saucers, and begin a full scale attack of Earth.  Not wacky enough? There’s also a Sarah Palin parody as the U.S. President, and the film takes place six years from now.  Also, the movie co-stars Udo Kier.  But in the end: moon Nazis.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with a press release about the film’s upcoming premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.  Iron Sky is set to hit theaters on April 4th.

Hat tip to Brad for giving me a heads-up on this movie before the official trailer was released.

Iron Sky Trailer Released, Berlinale Instantly Sold Out

The Finnish Scifi Spectacle Gears Up for World Domination by Releasing the Official Theatrical Trailer

The Fenno-Austro-German Iron Sky, a dark scifi comedy about the invasion of Nazis from the Dark Side of the Moon, celebrates its upcoming premiere at Berlin International Film Festival by releasing the very official theatrical trailer, showcasing what the dark horse of the Berlinale has to offer.

The trailer establishes that the Nazis in exile have been watching Earth for 70 years, constructing a huge fleet of flying saucers. When the Nazis decide that they have bided their time long enough and launch a full scale assault against the Earth, they find that Earth is the easy prey they sought to conquer. The massive top notch visuals alone speak volumes about the uniqueness of the movie.

“It was extremely difficult to make a movie like this. Honestly, it’s amazing we ever finished the film,” says Timo Vuorensola, the director of Iron Sky. “The many hardships and all the trouble we went through to make an indie product like this was staggering, but we pulled it through. We’re proud of our accomplishments, and the theatrical trailer gives a powerful glimpse into the world of Iron Sky.”

“The concept of Iron Sky is strong, and the movie both looks and sounds awesome. We really believe it can compete against the big Hollywood blockbusters ten times our budget,” says producer Tero Kaukomaa. “We aim to give these giants a good run for their money, and show what power a community like ours really wields. We are encouraging our fans to grab the trailer and spread it through the Internet like it was the end of the world. We want more views for our trailer than these blockbusters, and with our dedicated fan base, we know we can do it!”

Iron Sky‘s fan base has been steadily growing since the production started in 2006. The movie’s Facebook page alone has 100,000 fans, with millions of views on all three teasers, and unparalleled amounts of international attention. The production is in fact coproduced by the community – the fans have brought almost million dollars to the production budget through fan investments and funding.

Six years in the making, the 7.5 million euro production will have it’s world premiere at Berlin international Film Festival as part of the Panorama special selection. The tickets were sold out in an hour, overshadowing both Werner Herzog and Angelina Jolie’s newest productions. The theatrical release date for Iron Sky is April 4th 2012, and it has been sold to over 30 territories worldwide.

    I don’t know what’s more frightening…a Nazi space invasion..or Sarah Palin as president. Probably the latter.

    • Northern Star

      Considering how totalitarian and intolerant the Left are, I’m not surprised you feel that way… and don’t even pretend that you were joking about that comment, liberals were falling over themselves about the Nazis in the 1930′s, and thought they were the cat’s meow! If Sarah Palin scares you, it means she’s doing something right…

    • ManWithThePlan

      So you think a conservative democratically-elected female Governor is more frightening than a totalitarian, genocidal regime? Only in the twisted mind of a so-called ‘liberal’, I suppose…

      Little too much hate-orade this morning Mars?

  • jarvis3205

    Campy as hell…poorly acted…low budgeted or not…I’m still dying to see this damned movie!!!

    As a full blown history buff on the 3rd Reich…here’s to hoping they’ve tossed all rime & reason out the window.

    Been waiting anxiously since the dawn of the original trailer back in 2008. I love the cycle & sidecar from the OT. Gravity’s a bitch.

  • jarvis3205

    @ Mars… definitely & definitively Sara EFin Palin as president.

    • Sojourner

      You know what’s scarier? A country filled with communists like yourself trying to change the US into what Russia was/is.

      • James Hoffa

        You must be a Moon Nazi

  • Stinky

    Either I heard about this flick years ago… or I have been abducted by Moon Nazi’s…

    • Aurora Vampiris

      Yeah. It’s been in development for four years or so.

  • Aaron

    I can’t tell what the tone of this movie is going to be. Is it a spoof movie, or comedy. Or is just plain cheesy like a SyFy channel movie? I’ll see it either way.

    • Aurora Vampiris

      It’s a “dark sci-fi comedy” according to the film synopsis.

    Did they change the tagline? The world is sick and we are the doctor. Wasn’t it, the world is sick and we are the cure?

  • DE

    Brilliantly bonkers. I love saucers, I love space, I love idiotic female presidential wannabees and most of all, I love Nazis. Ok that last one was a joke. Movie looks verrrry interesting.

    This is what the ‘Judge Dredd’ movie should have been like – funny, satirical, visually awesome, and relatively low/mid budget – don’t know about the Sarah Palin jab though, give the woman a break, don’tcha think her and her family have been attacked and smeared enough, bad form there…

    Shouldn’t be A Comedy.

    I agree. They should have played the movie straight. It would still be funny and might get some cult status quality. This way..dont know.

  • happy1

    I was really really excited to see this movie. However the officical trailer looks horrible.

    It seems that they are going for the lowest common denominator now. What could have been a very cool concept is now stupid humor with a tired hollywood feel good motif.

    The image of the USA with a space superweapon sets my teeth on edge.

    I’m an american, yet im sick of seeing all this “look at us, we are smarter, better and we will save the world mentality.” for once i’d like to see our American asses kicked because we deserve it.

    Our leaders are pathetic and weak. Our schools barely teach students read beyond facebook posts. Our science has been abandoned in favor of saving polar bears. Our culture wallows in misguided conceit, fashioning the likes of american idol and dancing with the stars. We can’t even win a war against a 3rd world country now let alone the 3rd reich.

    Yes, I know that it is supposed to be a comedy. I just wish that they would have followed through with making it a dark comedy instead of another mindless go at the masses.
