NAZIS ON THE MOON? A LOOK AT THE 2012 MOVIE “IRON SKY”

The Moon's seen giant robots, flies, and clones visit on screen as of late, but this year's visitors may top them all: Nazis!

Yes, Nazis. Invading space Nazis, even.

The movie we'll be seeing them in is “Iron Sky”, a slick sci-fi comedy out of Finland that's sure to have the sci-fi community up in a furor.

Set in 2018, an American astronaut discovers that some Nazis escaped to space in 1945; built a giant moon fortress; and are now chilling on the dark side of the Moon. After this contact, the Nazis decide it's finally time to come back.

Moon Nazis have arrived.

The flick is pretty unique in that it was actually crowd-sourced; not only was a big chunk of the 7.5 million-euro budget (~$9.75 million) crowd-financed from donations, but fans could contribute to the creative process, as well.

This comic gem of Moon Nazi madness has a Finland release date of April 4th, with a U.S. run (invasion?) to follow. Here's my favorite of the teasers, which shows off some of the pretty impressive effects (whuch are not unlike fellow low-budget gems like Moon and “Trollhunter”):
