I was switched on to Iron Sky a while back, but haven’t got round to blogging on it.
However there is only so long any science fiction blog can go without putting stuff up on a film about space Nazis from the moon eager to kick some ass in third Reich-style flying saucers.
The story goes that they blasted off from a secret site in the Antartic in 1945 and founded the Black Sun space base on the dark side of the moon.
Now (in 2018, when the film is set) they are returning to reclaim the Earth in a fleet of flying saucers. Sound awesome enough for you?
It is 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, with filming beginning in October. It has already had some major social media heat after Gizmodo compared the inside of one of the saucers to what the inside of Darth Vader’s mask would look like, if he was controlled by mice.
Here’s the first teaser trailer and then the second trailer too, both of which are awesome. You can also find their excellent website here, with details of how you can support the film by spreading the word, buying merchandise or asking for it to be shown near you.
