Iron Sky TrailerCheck out this bit of imported coolness. A new trailer was recently released for Iron Sky, a science fiction comedy that has been in the oven for several years but appears to finally be on its way to getting a release. Though it hasn't yet secured a U.S. distributor, Timo Vuorensola says his space Nazi film will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 11th of this year.

Filmed in Germany and Australia back in 2010 and 2011, Iron Sky will officially open in Finland on April 4th and then other countries after that. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this thing gets a substantial U.S. distribution as it looks to be a very cool retro piece with many flavors of originality we've not seen in the States in quite some time.

An interesting tidbit about the film is the wide ranging collaboration the filmmakers had with fans and the community who were involved in creating ideas and content for the movie, and then generating the film's publicity by sharing information online. Collaborate, Demand, Support, Share, and Invest became the production's battle cry as it was being developed. So, if this looks interesting to you, be sure to get involved by visiting the Iron Sky web site to see how you can help. Start by watching the trailer below (Don't miss the Sarah Palin knock-off at about the 2-minute mark):

Iron Sky synopsis:
Towards the end of World War II the Nazi scientists made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.

Now it’s 2018, and it’s the time for the first American Moon landing since the 70?s. Meanwhile the Nazi invasion, that has been over 70 years in the making, is on its way, and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom. The three main characters of the story are Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), Klaus Adler (Götz Otto), and James Washington (Christopher Kirby).
