Blind Spot Pictures, the company behind the very interesting and potentially awesome space epic Iron Sky — a story set in an alternate world in which the Nazi’s set up a secret moon base in 1945 and plan to return and invade Earth again in 2018 — have released a bunch of new materials this week, including several new posters, a bunch of images and a teaser trailer. Though I’m almost certain that the trailer has been out for a while. Either way, it strikes me as a wicked idea and from what I’m seeing, it looks like a very cool flick.
First up is a bit of casting news. The project has signed on a few leads, including the previously reported hottie Julia Dietze. In an official release, Blind Spot Pictures has also made us aware that famous German actor Götz Otto will step in the boots of the intelligence officer Klaus Adler, a fanatic Moon Nazi officer devoted on invading the Earth. Otto has previously appeared in numerous feature films and tv-series, including James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, in which he appeared as an evil assassin Stamper.
Next up, a gallery of images from the film (mostly concept art and behind the scenes production photos), including two new posters featuring Dietze and Otto. Click below to enlarge.
And finally we have the film’s teaser trailer, which can be seen below. In addition to the trailer, the folks at Blind Spot have also begun releasing video spots as part of the film’s Cannes Film Festival promotional campaign. Those can be found over on the Iron Sky YouTube Channel.
Iron Sky does not yet have a release date. It is directed by Timo Vuorensola and was writen by Antti Hukkanen, Jarmo Puskala and Johanna Sinisalo.
