Nazis from the moon invade North America!

02.15.2012

IRON SKY blew up after the trailer appeared online last week. Five million views in six days means that it was more popular than THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN or BATTLESHIP.

"It feels great to beat these films that have already spent more on marketing that the entire budget of Iron Sky. I see it as a sign of democratisation of entertainment, where the internet means a Finnish film can capture the interest of the viewing public. This is a victory to all European and independent filmmakers, and it's all thanks to our active online community" says director Timo Vuorensola.

It's hysterical to think that Berlin hosted the premiere to a Nazi scifi comedy and they got a standing ovation, but that's exactly what happened. Critics seem mixed on it, but the audience seemed to love it. Now IRON SKY has been grabbing distribution deals left and right. Most recently they're getting it out in Isreal through the country's biggest distributor Shoval (I can see it being a hit there...) and they've also just confirmed a theatrical release in North America through Entertainment One. 

SXSW will see the film's next screening, and then they're going to a tour in Finland. Soon the whole world will fight the Nazi menace.

Because more views than Spider-Man or Battleship trailer counts for something now? I mean, who cares? And if anything, not that I personally care and I don't mean to burst Mr. Iron Sky director but your movie is most likely gonna bomb at the box office... You know that, right?
I mean, it looks like it could be as bad a movie as Sucker Punch was.

This looks awesome, but

Why didn't they get Tina Fey to play Sarah Palin? Did the best impersonation of the Alaskan governor. Too famous I guess? Oh and any movie with Udo Kier as the bad guy is a must watch for me. Those cold sinister eyes.

i have been following it too since the first teaser like 3 years ago it seems, but I am glad this crew is going to get the payoff it deserves. Judging from the webpage they were asking for donations the entire time to help get this made so I am happy for them that they will more than likely bank on this big time.

RE: on Palin

Palin is a spoof of the US president, there is nothing seriously implied using a look-a-like Palin for the US President, it is total Parody. ... kinda like when they Mentioned Ahh-nold Schwarzenegger being President in Demolition Man.

I was actually really excited for this until I started seeing all the Palin-esque comparisons.
Liberal preaching is so exhausting.

Nothing liberal about making fun of Palin. It's called 'comedy'.
