They went to the moon in 1945. In 2018 they're coming back.

Saw the trailer for this on Slashdot a few days ago. Looks like it should be fun. It'll be interesting to see what the Star Wreck guys do with some professional resources.

So the official trailer is up. Pretty bizarre.

It's coming out in 1,5 months or so, right?

Just saw the premiere, I have to say it sometimes missed a common thread, but I liked it. I was especially surprised at the quality of the special effects, considering the budget.
Also surprising was the amount of german spoken, which was a bonus for me (I'm german) because some jokes got lost in the subtitles.

I can only find this movie in German theatres. Not that much of a problem, since my German is probably good enough to understand most of it and I live near the border with Germany, but then many of my friends probably won't go, due to a lack of German proficiency :cry:

Some german theaters show the movie in english, I don't know if they are reasonable close to you, but on the iron sky site is a link to a list of german theaters
with the info which language is shown. I can't post links yet but I hope it's ok if I post the url:

Hmm. Then Munster would be closest. But that's still 75 km. Thanks!

I've been waiting for this film since I saw that teaser trailer years ago. And tonight, I found it for sale on sale on DVD.

That. Was. Epic.

I think for the UK release the distributors could only put it on for 1 day of cinema nationwide, presumably compensating by getting a quick DVD release. The local theatre for where I'm at in Australia had it nearly 2 weeks, with local media seemed to be claiming piece-of-the-pie production bragging rights for the region.

I thought the film would be a lot more straight-up "Nahtsee-killin' bizniss" than it was and it certainly surprised me with a few 'plot twists' that weren't exposed in the trailers.

Film end spoiler:
Spoiler:
Did anyone else notice the 'nuclear missile impact report' tones from the indie sim DEFCON pinging when the Earth powers went at it just before the credits kicked in? Absolutely certain that was the source sound.

Spoiler:
I did notice that, and it was a nice touch. And kind of sad that even after the space Nazis were defeated, the world goes to nuclear war over moon oil.

I also noticed that Asian PR lady's rant near the beginning was a homage to Hitler's meme-tastic rant in Downfall.


All in all, I think that was the most fun I've had watching a film for a long time. My one small niggle is that there was no acknowledgment that the space Nazis should be feeling damned uncomfortable in 6 times the gravity that they're used to once they get to earth. They could at least have hand waved it by saying they had hard physical training on the moon.

I guess a side effect of using vacuum tubes in space is artificial gravity based on how they stroll around the moon base likes its 1 earth standard, NASA should get on this ASAP.

Yet the black guy survived without a scratch after a fall that would have been fatal in Earth gravity.

I just saw this film. A most impressive production indeed! It is far more than camp value. I didn't quite get the ending, though; it's an unusual down note compared to the rollicking nature of the rest of the film. I guess they were going for some sort of Dr. Strangelove vibe?

I thought they couldn't show anything Nazi-related in Germany at all, what with Section 86a and all. Or did that expire?

I thought the ending was pretty good.

Spoiler:
What war against Nazis doesn't end up with someone getting nuked? Anyway I thought it was a pretty powerful note to end on, to contrast the silliness of the rest of the film.

There are exceptions in the law for works of art, science etc. (Fun fact: some judges tried to prohibit the use of crossed out swastikas which were used to symbolize protest against nazism, because a swastika is a swastika, no matter the context)
