IRON SKY Finally Gets a Trailer, Sets Premiere Date at Berlin International Film Festival

Iron Sky Teaser Poster

Official Synopsis

As World War II comes to an end in 1945, Hans Kammler and other German scientists make a breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base in the Antarctic, Nazi spaceships are sent to the “dark side” of the Moon to establish the military base “Schwarze Sonne”.[3] Their plan is to build a powerful fleet and return to conquer Earth. The film is set in the year 2018 when their descendants finally return.

What We Learned: The Nazis weren’t wiped off the face of the planet in 1945 they went TO THE MOON! And holy crap the calendar day they’ve set to return to this great Earth is 2018. Wait, did that Space Nazi scientist just poo-poo Steve Jobs technology?

Why We’ll Watch: The gears for IRON SKY began turning in 2006. It took six years to put this absurd, fantastic idea onto film and deliver it to the unsuspecting masses. We’ve had an eye on it ever since the first teaser was shared in 2008 via Internet Demigod, Warren Ellis. Blind Spot Pictures, the production company responsible for this admirable determination, has another science fiction, comedy film called STAR WRECK:THE PIRKINING(2005) under its belt. We have not seen the Star Wreck film nor have we heard much about it. Thus we can’t make a judgment from their previous work. We can say the trailer has piqued our interest and we’re determined to know how these motherhumping Space Nazis get their butts kicked back to the dark side of the moon or beyond.

When’s it coming? It debuts at the Berlin International Film Festival or Berlinale on February 11, 2012. We gotta say that BLind Spot Productions has great brass ones releasing a film about Nazis in Berlin.

The second teaser announces a movie launch date of April 4, 2012.
