‘Iron Sky’ is Finally Here


Six years in the making, Iron Sky — a near-future film that puts nazis on the moon — will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival this weekend.

About the film:

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.

When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act!

Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities

Here’s the official trailer for Iron Sky

    If only that had been the Captain America movie!

  2. Hunh. I never thought they would finish this movie…

  3. I keep thinking this is Charles Stross’s Iron Sunrise.

  4. Not sure which is more frightening: Lunar Nazis or President Palin.

  5. I’m surprised this is being shown in Berlin. I thought that displaying the insignia, etc., of a certain dark past was still verboten.

  6. Concept is good, but the film is apparently not.
