In the tradition of Mel Brooks’ Star Wars spoof Spaceballs, Iron Sky is a sci-fi comedy which seems to defy all rational thinking. (Like with so many undoubtedly awesome scripts out there waiting to be greenlit, why do we get handed this?)  But hey, you never know.  This film obviously has a huge budget so at least one person thought it was worth the trouble. It got a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes in the “wants to see” category. As of now, it is in limited release throughout the Netherlands with confirmed but unknown release dates for the US and the rest of the world. I guess I’ll just have to wait until Prometheus comes out to get my sci-fi fix. Here is the synopsis compliments of the film’s official website:

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.

When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act!

Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.
