That Invasion from Space Nazis movie, IRON SKY, it is finished AND it is premiering in BERLIN on Feb 11th!

Hey folks, Harry here...  I can't believe that IRON SKY is complete.  I've been hearing and seeing things from this "alleged movie" for eons now it seems.  I love their pre-production trailers and graphics, but I just kind of refused to believe that this would ever be finished.  Well, it has!  Moon Nazis are an official reality!   A swastika shaped moonbase exists...  and it is gonna get all Emmerich up on our asses!

If you happen to be attending the Berlin International Film Festival shortly and you see this - please send in your thoughts.   Oh - and for those of you that follow Yoko, she's quivering in anticipation, since seeing "GLASSING" is in the trailer!  Here's the latest:

    now, about this...

    by eloy

    It should have originally been one of the fake trailers in Grindhouse, for sure; the premise alone could carry this one out but it sorta looks a bit too much like Sky Captain to feel thoroughly optimistic about it. It does look real fun, however.

    Somewhere Kerry Conran weeps

    by digitalcos

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again - Kerry Conran deserves a second chance. 'Sky Captain' was by no means a great movie, it's certainly flawed, but c'mon, you can't tell me that movies like this, 'Sin City', '300', etc don't owe a debt to the pioneering work of Kerry Conran.

    Nazi's, isolated on the moon for 70 year, watching the earth, watching the technological and cultural developments, integrating these observations into their own technological and ideological developments could/would have been WILD sci-fi. Missed opportunity.

    Wow, I've never been so dumbfounded by a trailer before. Spaceballs on PCP? I don't know. I felt like I just saw a preview for a movie from an alternate universe. Space Nazi's sounds funny, like, "Mr.Show-type sketch comedy" funny. But not "spend a fuck load of money to make a huge movie about it" funny.

    Zombot RE: Swastikas in movies

    by DerLanghaarige

    Germany allows them in movies, but in comic books and video games, they are constantly obliterated or edited out. (Although I don't know if this done by law or just a precautionary measure from the respective companies. )

  • Jan. 27, 2012, 2:52 a.m. CST


    by Samson_K

    I remember that there was an Indiana Jones games being developed as a follow up to the Atlantis one and it ended up being canned because of the theme and story. It was called Indiana Jones and the Iron Phoenix - I read the comic book of it years ago but can't remember what it was about. It was canned though because Germany was such a big market for video games and this would never sell due to legislation against making children's entertainment have Nazi symbols etc - or something. Anyway, this looks like it might be cool for about twenty five minutes but then start getting a bit dull - I might be wrong and I love the idea and even the Sky Captain meets Mars Attacks feel looks cool. I just think that it's going to be difficult to sustain a good story.

    by vanchimera

    I was all in, every bit of material I'd seen before this trailer made me feel like this would be something special. Now, after seeing THIS trailer, I feel like it's something special ed. That director is a fucking douche, and the movie seems infinitely more schlock than I ever expected. Disappointed that after really rooting for this thing for what feels like a few years now, any enthusiasm has been suddenly deflated by what looks to be the Tom Six equivalent to comedy sci-fi.

    by DocPazuzu

    I don't actually know what German law says about those things, but what I do know is that a lot of PC game companies often make sanitized versions of their games (no swastikas, green blood instead of red, etc.) for the German market, and then immediately after releasing them post patches on their sites which restore the games to their original state, thus enabling German gamers to enjoy the games as they were meant to be seen.

    I'd Be More Interested If They Didn't Try So Damn Hard

    by Crow3711

    I'm skeptical of anything that has to "meme" itself and actually says "motherfucking space nazis" in its own promotional material. You're supposed to show us something that will make the internet citizens laugh and start screaming "motherfucking space nazis!!!" It just reeks of desperation when you do it yourself. Also, I love swearing, but it really does come off as unprofessional and sad when you do a voiceover with motherfucking in it. You aren't edgy. I'm still interested in the movie....but the promo is so desperate it makes me skeptical.

  • Jan. 27, 2012, 9:47 a.m. CST

    the computer joke is kind of funny- but poorly executed-


    -as i feel the rest of the movie is too. realllllllly cool premise done with too much look and not enough depth, and lots of missed opportunities. perhaps the best description is, it would have been a better first person shooter game than a movie.

  • i'd seen clips, and the movie was in funding hell, but the premise seemed cool- at a predetermined time, operations automatically start up in a secret nazi lab, releasing undead nazi soldiers attached to small weather balloons, depositing them all over the place, as well as a scene of some coming out of the ocean. the effects looked pretty cool, better than dead snow and maybe better than this.

    I did not know that - I did live in Germany for a year in a place called Freiburg and I was pretty impressed by the size of the War Film selection in most of the big shops compared to what it's like in the UK and I remember talking to one girl who had said that when she was being taught history at school it sort of amounted to Germany went through a period of massive growth in the thirties and then in the late forties there was a boom in the building industry. I think it's changing but I think that Germany needs to stop apologizing for something that happened over 50 years ago. And Britain needs to stop making so many fucking documentaries about Hitler. Anyway, that's from my limited perspective.

    Interesting little bit of education there; thanks for that. My initial reaction was that if the symbol was truly not allowed to be shown, then watching Raiders of the Lost Ark in Germany must have been a truly confusing experience indeed. Nice to have the details from our learned colleagues.

    Swastikas in Germany

    by Chariowalda_Barbarossa

    I don't want to bother with the exact law deatails, but the political use of swastikas is forbidden here in Germany, generally speaking everything that glorifies the third reich. IMHO this issue is being handled quite reasonably and the swastika is allowed when it "serves to further civil enlightenment, to avert unconstitutional aims, to promote art or science, research or teaching, reporting about current historical events or similar purposes." (quotet from wikipedia article about the applying Strafgesetzbuch paragraph). Some examples: Of course swastikas are allowed and used in movies all the time. However there's probably huge loads of paperwork to be done before you can legally decorate a street with swastika flags to shoot the movie. Can't use it for advertisemt that easily. The "swastika-o" in german Inglorious Basterts posters, dvd-covers etc. has a bullet hole where the international ones have a swastika. Plastic model kits of german WW2 vehicles or airplanes come without swastika decals. It's not forbidden to import foreign kits though. When I built a Me 262 from a japanese kit as a kid I didn't put those decals on it. That's our built-in guilty conscience.

  • Jan. 27, 2012, 2:35 p.m. CST

    by workshed

    I'd watch another Sky Captain movie as long as they recast the lead. Visually it was a feast and I'm sure everyone is waiting to see what Conran does next. Remember, it was still relatively early days for complete green screen acting and it's an art that is sill being refined. What Kerry created withthe tools at his disposal was nothing short of a miracle. I was hoping he'd be the one to make a Supes movie, not the soulless Snyder.
