‘Iron Sky’ Clip: Here Comes the Meteor Blitzkrieg!

Published 3 years ago by

A few years have passed since we first got word of the Finnish sci-fi comedy Iron Sky. Since then, we’ve seen the opening of the film – in which a team of Nazis stationed on the moon launch an attack on Earth – as well as its poster and trailer.

Now, courtesy of Collider, we have the above glimpse at the film, whocasing the Moon Nazis’ initial strike on New York City.

The video doesn’t offer much insight into how the overtly silly premise will play out, but it does give us an idea of the cool visual effects that we can expect, including the destruction (yes, again) of the Statue of Liberty. Depending on how committed the filmmakers are to embracing the inherent campiness, Iron Sky could potentially be a lot of fun and a goofy parody of disaster films in general.

In development since 2006, Iron Sky – from director Timo Vuorensola (Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning) – initially faced some difficulty securing financing, but finally completed principal photography in early 2011.

See the official synopsis of the film below, from the film’s official site:

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 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.

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!

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.

Iron Sky is currently in limited release across the United States. Visit the film’s official website for information on how you can bring it to your city.

      Think your average Mel Brooks or Zucker movie (Airplane 1 & 2 etc.) but worse and with bad actors. It has its moments but all in all I can’t really recommend it in good conscience.

  2. f*** you nazis. wolverine hugh jackman need in captain america the winter soldier movie.

  3. already saw the movie its a cool flick, its how nazi from the moon wanne take over the earth :)

  4. I got this film the other week…it was only £7 !! Best £7 I’ve spent In a while……The story is utter nonsense, the fx considering the budget are very crisp and the acting was very well done (for this type of film)

    Although not the greatest film ever made its still brilliant to see films like this which aren’t re-makes or standard Hollywood crap getting put out there.

    Well worth a watch (well it made me chuckle anyway)

  5. Avengers Assemble?!

    • Lol…

  6. Isn’t this the same Iron Sky released for one day in the UK before being sold on DVD? That also had Nazi’s from the moon..

  7. I’ve seen it. It’s woeful. It’s so bad its just awful.

  8. Saw this movie a while back and sucked ass big time. The FX are ok but the rest is just garbage.

    • So many piraters…. :/

      • as in ‘Piraters’ of the Caribbean?

      • Never assume. Iron Sky had its run in the theaters three months ago in Germany and other European countries. It’s not our fault that you are late to the party. 😉

  9. why “bring it to your city”? you can just buy it off Amazon and the mailman will bring it right to your house.

    and for some odd reason, the Bluray is cheaper than the DVD.

  10. Is it all ‘dubbed’ and subtitled?

  11. Picked it up from the Amazon UK Store (I live in the US) for about $15 total after conversion, it was good for a chuckle, special effects were good, acting was ok, and there’s a significant portion of it in English while some of it is in German and subtitled, well worth a watch

  12. I am kind of getting tired of our national monuments being blown up in the movies. Sure, the concept was an interesting one in “Planet of the Apes” and “ID4″, but I think its getting kind of old and offensive.
