Iron Sky: The Coming Race – the first trailer

11 May 2017 10:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 12, 2017

Hitler is on a dinosaur in the first trailer for Iron Sky 2…

The first Iron Sky movie arrived in 2012, off the back of a six year development period. It was fuelled heavily by fandom, with the makers of the film working closely with its potential audience through the making of the movie. Eventually, it reached the finish line, although its UK release spluttered, off the back of the decision to give it just one day in British cinemas. It took a fan backlash to do something about that.

Still, it’s a movie firmly classed as a cult one, with reviews not on the happy side generally. But still, it did enough business to warrant a sequel. Which is what brings us all together today.

Iron Sky: The Coming Race has been in the works officially since 2013, and this time, the movie has been crowdfunded too. Its »

Hitler rides a T-Rex in poster and trailer for Iron Sky: The Coming Race

11 May 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a long while since we got the first teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race, the sequel to the 2012 crowd-funded hit Iron Sky, but now we have a brand new poster and trailer for the film, which are both as bonkers as you’d expect them to be. Check them out here…

Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity – or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race, and their army of dinosaurs.

Insane Iron Sky 2 Trailer Has Hitler Riding an Angry T-Rex

9 May 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2012's absolutely bizarre cult hit Iron Sky is finally getting a sequel next year and, it may not be a great movie, but it just got an insane new trailer. The teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race has finally arrived online, and it is way more bizarre than any of us could have possibly imagined. If the idea of space Nazis wasn't enough for you, how about Hitler riding a T-Rex like a horse? Because that definitely happens in this latest footage.

The Iron Sky: The Coming Race teaser was recently uploaded to the official Iron Sky YouTube channel, and it was worth the wait. The movie may not ultimately be worth a six-year wait, but even if that is the case, this trailer is definitely worth a few minutes of your time. There are spaceship battles that almost look worthy of Star Wars, a Nazi base at the center of the Earth and, »

Walerian Borowczyk's Theater of the Body

6 April 2017 2:52 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Mubi's retrospective The Many Sins of Walerian Borowczyk is showing February 12 - June 18, 2017 in the United States and in many other countries around the world.The late 1970s marks a stylistic departure for Walerian Borowczyk, as the Polish director moved away from a controlled, painterly style and toward a ‘corporeal’ style, wherein changes in aesthetic choices allowed him to explore the human body in greater depth than in his previous films. While the liberal portrayal of sex and sexuality (lending itself to the liberal portrayal of bodies, human or otherwise) is present in Borowczyk’s live-action films as early as his anthology Immoral Tales from 1973, the preoccupation with the body specifically comes to the fore with the films Behind Convent Walls  (1978), Immoral Women (1979), L’armoire (1979), Lulu (1980), and The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Miss Osbourne (1981). It is in this four-year period that the viewer will notice Borowczyk's moving away »
