Above is the latest teaser trailer for Finnish film director Timmo Vuorensola’s Nazi sci-fi movie Iron Sky.
You read that right. Nazis from space is probably another way to describe this film which, judging by the trailer, looks a lot like Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow..except less shit. Why less shit? Nazis in space, we rest our case.
As a dark science fiction that plays with Finland’s history of being oppressed by Russia, Iron Sky is a deliberate thematic throwback, a modern implementation of once-popular science fiction tropes that have fallen into disuse, such as Nazis in space.
As World War II comes to an end in 1945, Hans Kammler and other German scientists make a breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base in the Antarctic, Nazi spaceships are sent to the “dark side” of the Moon to establish the military base “Schwarze Sonne” (Black Sun). Their plan is to build a powerful fleet and return to conquer Earth. The film is set in the year 2018 when their descendants finally return.
Plus it’s got the same token German actor, (Udo Kier), Hollywood have been using in movies as a villain for the last 20 years.
