"In 1945 the Nazis went to the Moon. In 2018 they're coming back." That's the original tag line that ran in a 2008 movie trailer for a fan-funded Nazi sci-fi comedy called Iron Sky, and that trailer kicked ass. The new 2010 trailer for Iron Sky kicks significantly more ass, and we can say with utter certainty that it's the best "hidden Nazis on the moon" trailer you can see now or ever will see in your life. Watch:
Are we right? You don't even need to answer, we know we're right. You can find out more about the movie here, including how you can help them make it. Here are some details:
"Do you want to take part in a new way to make movies, something the large studios are only now starting to notice and react to after such hits as Paranormal Activity?
In 1945 the Nazis went to the Moon - and in 2018 they are coming back! This is the premise of the dark sci-fi comedy Iron Sky, the next project by the creators of the Internet hit Star Wreck that has to date reached over eight million viewers around the globe. Star Wreck was a forerunner in utilising the Internet for publicity and distribution, and Iron Sky will build on that - this time as an international co-production with a budget of 6.5 million euros, big name actors, and aimed at a worldwide theatrical release in 2011.
Iron Sky is on the forefront of a new wave of indie movies, where the filmmakers are in direct contact with the audience even before the movie is out, using the power of communities in both creating the movie and also to a degree in funding it. The creators of Star Wreck and Iron Sky founded the acclaimed communal filmmaking platform Wreckamovie in 2007, something the large studios are only now slowly starting to explore. Iron Sky has a large and active fanbase that is already fervently waiting to see the movie, more than a year before the designated release date.
This is your chance to take part in this groundbreaking movie project. We have been successful in financing 86% of the budget, and to cover the missing 900,000 euros we are looking for individuals and companies to invest and share the possible profits from Iron Sky. We have created various equity investment packages from 1,000 € and 5,000 € all the way up to 20,000 € and more, which include different additional advantages for the investors. These range from a guaranteed ticket to the premiere through a
private screening to an associate producer credit - and everything in between."
