Iron Sky Trailer: Earth Vs. The Moon Nazis

Submitted by on February 16, 2012 – 11:03 amNo Comment

Moon Nazis? Yep, Moon Nazis. Finally, the world is getting the quality historical-revisionist science fiction it demands with Finnish director Timo Vuorensola‘s dark comedy, Iron Sky. The first full trailer arrived recently, and audiences can barely wait for the rest.

It seems a few of Adolf’s cronies hightailed it to the far side of the moon in 1945, where they set up a swastika-shaped lunar base and slowly ploted their revenge. In 2018, they return to Earth to settle the score.

Apparently, they encounter some resistance in the form of a lone wolf cowboy of an American space solider (Christopher Kirby). And you probably couldn’t miss that familiar-looking female American president with the updo and Tina Fey glasses. (The Mama Grizzly’s influence may have faded, but the international community will never forget.)

The cast comprises mainly unknowns, but I immediately recognized one steely-eyed German: Udo Kier. Don’t know the name? You’ll definitely know the face. His IMDB page lists 200 acting credits (!), including everything from Blade to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated.

Vuorensola claims that the film had a budget of €10 million (about $13,000,000), 1 million of which was funded by individual internet donations.

What do you think? Will Iron Sky live up to the hype?
