The Battle for Earth is Gonna Get… Nazi

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

IRON SKY is apparently finished, and set to premiere, natürlich, at the Berlinale. Here’s the trailer:

I saw Timo Vuorensola in November on a panel at Futures of Entertainment and he spoke at length about how the film has been financed and put together. This was the first time I’ve seen anybody put crowd-funding and crowd-sourcing in a credible business context, and the first time I’ve contemplated the prospect of blockbuster movies being produced in this way. With all the fallout from SOPA/PIPA, I can’t think of a better time to be invading multiplexes with a film pitched as INGLORIOUS BASTARDS meets SIN CITY meets ‘old French movies’. Expect the space hun to be big in 2012.
