You might have come across the trailer for writer-director-actor David Sandberg’s 80s action extravaganza Kung Fury yesterday, but it’s so damn good that we had to feature it in our Indie Spotlight. The plot features an over-the-top kung fu cop who travels back in time to take out “the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer.” Things don’t go quite as planned and the title character is flung into ancient times where he is joined by some unexpected allies.
Sandberg and his production team, Laser Unicorns, have started a Kickstarter page in order to fund a 30-minute short, with the hopes of turning Kung Fury into a feature film. You can get in on the wacky action for as little as $5 and as much as $10,000 for a major role in the film (sorry, that one’s already gone, but still up for grabs is Thor’s hammer and helmet). Hit the jump for much more on Kung Fury.
Check out the trailer for Kung Fury below, and pop over to their Kickstarter page to help fund the feature-length film and get yourself some swag!
Kung Fury is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.
During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assasinated [sic] by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has it’s foundation in 80s cop movies.
