Space Nazis!

In 1945 the Nazis went to the moon. In 2018 they are coming back.

So goes the tag line of Iron Sky, an as-yet-unreleased feature-length science fiction comedy, from the creators of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning. The story is described on the site (which also has a MySpace page):

Towards the end of World War II, in 1945, the SS officer Hans Kammler’s staff made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ’45, and they founded the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the so-called dark side of the Moon. The purpose of this base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.

It is the year 2018. The Nazis are about to return to an unsuspecting Earth – but the homeworld has problems of its own. Frustrated people hunger for anything inspiring, shocking, strange or surprising, like a lightning bolt out of the blue. They’re going to get it – more so than they’ve ever hoped! And they’re going to love it!

Mmmm…space Nazis…. If we could just slam time-traveling zombies in there, it’d be a certified hit.
