Iron Sky is a partially crowd-funded indie (technically, isn’t anything produced by a corporation ‘crowd-funded’?) that recently released a trailer in advance of its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. Not only does it have space Nazis, it was directed by a Finnish guy, and as I think we’ve already seen from Grotesco and Creed Shreds, Scandinavians make the best parodies.
Towards the end of World War II the Nazi scientists made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.
Now it’s 2018, and it’s the time for the first American Moon landing since the 70?s. Meanwhile the Nazi invasion, that has been over 70 years in the making, is on its way, and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom. The three main characters of the story are Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), Klaus Adler (Götz Otto), and James Washington (Christopher Kirby). [via /Film]
I enjoy that the voiceover guy pronounces it “drawring” but also says “whilst,” but other than that, it was pretty light on odd translations. Which is a shame, because in my opinion, minor translation errors make anything at least fifty percent funnier. Like, the other day I saw these two Russian ladies arguing over a parking space. Or they were both trying to speak English, so maybe one of them was Polish, or Croation or something, but all I remember was one jabbing her finger in the other’s chest and shouting “You are BEEG BEETCH!” And that made it so much better than you’re normal parking space fight. This was a good story, wasn’t it.
