Rate-a-Trailer: Iron Sky

Nobody likes Nazis, not even in the future. This is why directors love having the Third Reich in their film: they embody a timeless evil that everyone can agree to hate. Simply by slapping a swastika onto a soldier’s uniform, the wing of a plane, or having an entire space station built in the image of one on the moon, viewers can instantly recognize the bad guys.

The Finnish film Iron Sky is described as a science-fiction comedy, which, with nothing but the trailer to go on, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to us at the moment. All we know is that near the end of the clip, the words “SEND US YOUR MONEY” are seen flying through space amongst fighter jets as the sun starts to emerge behind some unidentifiable planet. That’s because the project is being funded entirely through crowdsourcing.

Iron Sky (Finnish: Rautataivas) is an upcoming Finnish feature-length comedy science fiction film from the makers of the Star Wreck series, directed by Timo Vuorensola and produced by Samuli Torssonen as their next project after the success of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning.[3][4][5] Aboard as screenwriter for Iron Sky is the award-winning Finnish author Johanna Sinisalo.[6][7] The film is being created by the Energia Productions, Blind Spot Pictures and Cinet production companies. It is estimated to be released in cinemas early 2011.

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).[3] 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.[3][5]
