Indie Teaser Sunday: New Promo for Nazi Sci-Fi Film Iron Sky
In 1945 The Nazis Went To The Moon. In 2018 They Are Coming Back. Yes, that is the actual tagline for this crazy new sci-fi film from Finland, of all places, called Iron Sky. You've probably heard about it before, as we wrote a story last year reporting that it had received enough funding to start shooting. This isn't really an indie trailer more than it is an awesome, unique, fun foreign teaser trailer, but that's exactly why I wanted to feature it today anyway. This early promo comes from Quiet Earth and although the video alludes otherwise, they assure us that all of this is real footage that will appear in the movie in the end. Can't wait to see this!
Watch the promo teaser trailer for Timo Vuorensola's Iron Sky:
The Nazis set up a secret base on the moon in 1945 where they hide out and plan a return to power in 2018.
Iron Sky is directed by Finnish filmmaker Timo Vuorensola, of only Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning, and who is also the lead singer in Finnish black metal band Älymystö. The screenplay for this was written by Johanna Sinisalo and is based on a story by Antti Hukkanen & Jarmo Puskala. This is apparently shooting in Finland as we speak, so expect to hear a bit more later in the year. This doesn't have a US distributor yet, but we'll be following it closely, so we'll let you know when it picks up one! Anyone else kind of excited to see this?

JTMoney on May 16, 2010
wow...........i'm not sure what to think - but it has nazis in it...........from space?...............and that's a pretty good start. LOL i'm sure i'll see it on netflix but i'd have to see more before i'd buy theatre tickets for it.

The last part with all the ships coming toward earth was fracking awesome. A full scale invasion similar to independence day but with Nazis...can't wait.
akumared on May 16, 2010
That looks fairly amusing Love the swastika base! I wont go see this in any theater but it does look interesting
Jimmy Love on May 16, 2010

Xerxex on May 16, 2010

k-ile on May 16, 2010
Actually #10 that was the moonbase if you didnt notice...whats funny is those flying UFO like disks were actually a failed nazi prototype.....as for this. I dont really know what to think, it looks simultaneously awesome and horrible. Also "send us your money" wtf?!
Cody w on May 16, 2010
I am speechless. Something about this feels off, like they turned a music video for Muse into a full length feature.
Traveler on May 16, 2010
Nazi's from space need your money
DoomCanoe on May 16, 2010
one word: YES!!!
taylor on May 16, 2010
OMG this looks insane. I love kick nazi ass movies. I gots to see this. And the American remake in 5 years, hahahaha.
Zantorian on May 16, 2010
lol who remembers seeing the preview for Jews in space at the end of History of the world Part I by Mel Brooks. This reminds me of that. However Hitler on Ice was too funny to watch as well.
werdnafaz on May 16, 2010
Dayum this looks like a SCIFI special. Looks like a DVD rental and that is pushing it!
dee on May 16, 2010
#18, that's exactly what I was thinking. Like #23 said it looks like a DVD rental at best.
Hattori Hanzo on May 17, 2010
Haha, great that you cover a trailer about this. Its pretty pop in Finland 🙂 The first movie which they made (Star Wreck) was just a homage-to-star-trek-etc-and-do-it-yourself-with-friends-movie and they put it for free on the net and its been downloaded from their website ~9million times... I'm sure it wont be amazing, but its always nice to see movies from Finland, made in English.. The story sounds pretty crazy(!), but also pretty funny and interesting. I respect Finnish indie film makers, so i'm definitely going to see this in the theaters when it premiers, and you should too! (Well, if you can call 5mill€-budget movie an indie film.. Because its one of the "biggest" budgets in Finnish cinema 😀 Premiere in January 2011 by the way at least in Finland...).
coswell on May 17, 2010
Walt Disney Finland is part this movie lol if this becomes a sleeper hit you wait Hollywood will do a remake of it asap
tazz on May 17, 2010
"Shall we get some coffee?" "Well we could, but the cafeteria is in swastika base arm #2." "But I can see it so clearly from the windowwww!" "Sorry, you'll have to go back to the hub and work your way around like everybody else." I know space nazis shouldn't be nitpicked, but a swastika base would be ****ing horrible.
dRailer on May 17, 2010
FRICKING A. Space + Nazis + Invasion = AWESOME WIN. Has this got a distributor though?
dude... on May 17, 2010
this has the same feel as Mutant Chronicles [which btw sucked]...trailer is decieving...space nazis or not, this is not gonna be good...not even "it's so bad, it's funny"
chilin on May 17, 2010
WTF... Sign me up, where do I send the money !!!!!
tester on May 17, 2010
These are the same guys who made that independent satire "Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning" or something similar. It's the funniest (ok, the _only_) crossover film between Star Trek and Babylon 5 that I've ever seen. Of course, we're missing a lot of jokes since they're finnish-based puns, but still it's a fun film. I'm guessing this film will be less of a parody and more of an action / "B-movie" flick.
Luis M on May 17, 2010
I can't freaking wait. This looks so bizarrely different from any of the same old Hollywood crap. Will it be "District 9" big? Probably not, but I'm looking forward to seeing it. @ #27 dRailer, when I saw the shape of the base, I thought something very similar "That would be like trying to navigate Philadelphia International"(or whatever its called, I wasn't there long). Just a nightmare of being so close but so distant from where you want to be.
Scotty97 on May 17, 2010
1. Drop that operatic train wreck of sound at the end of the trailer 2. Release this in as many theaters as possible 3. Profit
bozo on May 17, 2010
Yeeeeeeehhhhaaaa!!! A good old boy movie where them dang Nazi boys blows everything up!
Cletus the Slack Jawed Skinhead on May 17, 2010
I hope this movie is free as their first movie (Star Wreck)!
mr. Fin on May 17, 2010
maybe this won't be the best movie ever but it looks interesting and something to watch as long as its action oriented, not love or comedy within what should be an action movie (i.e. "Stealth" and "Inglorious Bastards" respectively). Another great thing about this movie is that it's fresh...it's a new idea and not a remake or very similar to any other story...as far as i kno nazis in space is a pretty fresh idea

Indie film or Indy 5?
Nick on May 19, 2010
If the Nazis had this technology wouldn't they have won WWII?
Yum Yum Khao on May 20, 2010
#27: They might have tunnels on the underground, they'd probably just want the surface structure to remain more "symbolic". #43: But maybe this was their plan all along..
matt on May 20, 2010
@38 Mel Brooks was ahead of his time. "The Jews are in space...trudging along defending the Hebrew race"
James on May 22, 2010
Walt Disney Finland??? Does Walt Disney even know they have a division in Finland?? Nazis attack from the dark side of the Moon... There is another trailer here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KEueJnsu80
Right Turn Clyde on May 23, 2010
Space Hymies-V-Space Nazi's???? Can't wait.....
Max on May 25, 2010
Yeah, anything about this trailer that would insist the Nazis are going to get their ass kicked. All I see is a bunch of guys with better technology coming to the world's ass. Maybe its just me, also the "send us your money" thing, perhaps a mistake in translation. If not, then piss off, were not a charity organization, Finland.
AB on May 27, 2010
Whats really interesting is there has been some talk in conspiracy circles that since it was Nazi scientists that built the means to actually go to the moon thanks to the V2 rocket technology, when man first went to the moon, it was to find some strange artifacts. Most moon landings appear to be on April 20th, which is Hitlers B-day and 420 for all you stoners out there. 😛 If any of you did a little digging you might find some interesting facts regarding all this, even if you don't buy in to most of it.
Bauzer on May 31, 2010
#48 Damn straight. If I am sending my hard earned to Finland to help finance this oscure Indie flick then I want a featured role in return. But they are not going to do this in Finland are they? Won't they be doing this in Australia? Yes, Australia. Not Austria.
Max on May 31, 2010
Gee, let me see, Sam Worthington as the Nazi Space General or something. For God's sake.
