    Another vote for “Keep us informed; if it’s at least as good as the trailer I want a copy.:

  2. mego says:

    I thought it looked cool. Better than another overpriced super hero sequel.

    Star Wreck started as a bunch of friends making home movie-Star Trek ripoffs, and they have quite a nerd following in Finland & elsewhere. People have been waiting for this movie to come out for years, and it’s nice to see they’re getting closer. It will be the biggest Nazi-Kalevala-Moon pic ever.

    “tiny moments of scatological comic relief inserted into hours of fascist steampunk porn”

    Sounds good to me.

    As for more apposite music, how about Nazi UFO Commander?

  5. syntaxerr0r says:

    I just hope it’ll take less time to make than Star-Wreck, which was freakin’ awesome but took over 7 years!

    Perrrrrkele!

    I see what you did there.

    You’re a clever boy aren’t you? Yes you are. A clever, clever little boy. Oh yes you is, oh yes you is.

    Who’s a clever boy? Who’s a clever boy? Yes, it’s you! Yes you are!

    The trailer looked interesting. However, I took a look at the Star Wreck trailer in the link and that looked god awful.

    I can never seem to get BoingBoing to accept my login.

    I went to the Iron Sky site, and I see that Johanna Sinisalo, author of Not Before Sundown, has signed on to write the script, so it should be– dare I say it?– awesome.

    So much for my drinking game tonight. Only six ‘awesome’s, so only six drinks. What a bust. Hell, I usually spill that much.

    Nores, lay off the alcohol for a while, m’kay, sweetie?

  12. Antiglobalism says:

    I stopped caring for these “return of the…” when “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!” came out. Gosh!

  13. MrsBug says:

    Can someone fill me in on who the singer was? I liked it. I checked the site, but didn’t see anything.

  14. drblack says:

    These guys better give some credit to Heinlein since the plot is exactly the plot of Rocket ship Galileo.
    It was one of Heinlein’s young adult books, so it involved Teenagers going to the Moon and finding that the Nazis had escaped to the Moon to keep up their plan for world domination.
    It wasn’t one of his better books.

  15. LeonBlank says:

    The singer is Kaiti Kink, a Finnish female voice, and the music is written by Tapani Siirtola and Joonas Naskali from Adamantium Studios.

  16. the_boy says:

    As a fan of speculative fiction and historical what-ifs, that was absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to see the film, and for there to be classic 1940s style propaganda posters for it.

  17. Sputnik says:

    Well, you don’t get much more awesome than that.

  18. mujadaddy says:

    That’s ridiculous–everyone knows the Americans liberated the Moon from the Nazis in ’44.

    Still, looks gorgeous.

  19. dargaud says:

    Very neat… but the music… arghhh !

  20. Kieran O'Neill says:

    I just have to:

    On the moon,ep 1,ep 2

    “If you don’t get yourself dubbed, Moon Hitler, I shall simply ignore you.”

    Drinking game! Drinking game! I’m taking a shot each time someone says ‘awesome.’ I should be drunk on my ass by midnight.

    The first half sounds an awful lot like Billy Holiday’s version of “Gloomy Sunday” (which is an incredible song – about a woman committing suicide, after the death of her lover – for those who have never heard it)

    Link to wikipedia article on Gloomy Sunday‘s very interesting history. Note the addition of the 3rd verse in the Holiday version, added to make the record more ‘sellable’ (and slightly to it’s detriment on a purely artistic level).

  23. Santos says:

    Nazis on the moon wasn’t original with Heinlein. Wil Eisner and Wally Wood did it with the Spirit on the Moon, and Wally returned to it several times.

  24. eniksleestack says:

    Meh. Is it just me, or does this just seem like a really elaborate opening montage from a video game?

    It’s hard to derive much of plot from scenes of masked Moon Nazis riding around on Zundapps and Robotech-type flying machines. The bird pooping part was nice — but does that suggest anything more than tiny moments of scatological comic relief inserted into hours of fascist steampunk porn? I dunno.

    On the other hand, “French Revolutionaries on Mars,” now that would be a movie.

  25. the_boy says:

    It reminded me a lot of the trailer for Fallout three: (http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/downloads/videos.html)
    which I guess puts it somewhere between fascist steampunk porn and fascist post-apocalyptic porn.

    And if it was a game, it’d be fantastic

  26. Elysianartist says:

    okay…a couple of things. First of all the “nazis” never really left as anyone who has followed US politics for the last 7 years can tell you. the yellow lines on the road? WTF. and the motorcycle? again, WTF. other than that, looks pretty awesome….. and I thought the music was perfect.

  27. Cowicide says:

    Kick ass trailer. Very different from hollywood trailers everyone is used to (and brainwashed into thinking should be some kind of standard format you have to follow). Kudos for breaking the mold. (I’m sure the pigeon shit ending and the music confused the hell out of the sheep, LOL.)

  28. Will Shetterly says:

    Best moon Nazi trailer ever!

  29. holtt says:

    Wooo, that would make one hell of a game.

    It reminds me of Man Conquers Space (http://manconquersspace.com/)

  30. coldspell says:

    Looks awesome, but the trailer could be tightened up a bit and needs some more drama. The music for the first half worked well, but was a little too upbeat for the second half.

    The bird poop seemed out of place (unless the rest of the film is comedic, but that is not implied at all by this trailer).
