It was a crazy idea -- but somehow independent flick "Iron Sky" managed to make a secret Nazi base on the dark side of the moon work: both as an entertaining romp and an interesting commentary on political motivations.
"Iron Sky: The Coming Race" -- seeking funding on Indiegogo -- is upping the ante with conspiracy theories and dinosaurs.
"Twenty years after the events of "Iron Sky", the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity -- or destroy it once and for all," the film's description reads.
In a brief teaser for the film, we see the return of the Sarah Palin-esque president -- looking very much as though she hasn't aged a day, let alone 20 years, explained when it's revealed she actually belongs to a race of shape-shifting reptilians (as per the Hollow Earth hypothesis), and the return of Hitler riding a T.rex named Blondi (Tyrannosaurus Reich, anyone?). The Eye of Providence even makes a brief appearance.
"The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth," the team wrote. "To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shape-shifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs."
On board are director of photography Mika Orasmaa, who performed the same role on "Iron Sky"; band Laibach, who scored the first film; and SFX studio Pixomondo, creator of Daenerys' dragons for "Game of Thrones". The film will also see the return of Udo Kier (Moon Führer Kortzfleisch), Julia Dietze (Renate Richter) and the introduction of Tom Green in the role of a cult leader on the moon.
You can reserve yourself a copy of the film for just $20 on Indiegogo, with other rewards including a steelbook Blu-ray edition, director's cut, t-shirts, storyboards, a set visit and a role as Executive Producer.
