Nazis? Check. Space? Check. Sci-Fi action? Check. An utterly absurd movie premise that actually works pretty well? Check and check.
To what amazing movie are we referring? Well, brace yourself for the Nazi invasion from the moon as Iron Sky comes to Blu-ray, DVD, PPV and more next month. Here’s all you need to know:
In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During the following 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis constructed a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. Their plan: travel back to Earth and re-colonize the planet.
When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act, so two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.
Yep. Check out the trailer for Iron Sky after the break. Look for the movie in a theater near you and on Blu-ray, DVD and more on October 2.
