Iron Sky Movie Trailer

The Local, an English-language web site covering Germany, reports in "Space Nazis colonize moon in fan-funded film" that the movie Iron Sky has completed filming and is being shopped around to distributors.

The film posits an escape from Earth to the moon by the Nazis at the end of the second world war. They establish a lunar homeland, from which they apparently return to earth in the year 2018. So your average Merchant-Ivory storyline. (Am I the only one who thinks of Norman Spinrad's novel Iron Dream upon hearing about this film?)

The film is a Finnish-German-Australian coproduction and was made for just €6.8 million, including funding kicked in by the fan community.

Think of it as a Teutonic Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
