The Story of Iron Sky
Towards the end of World War II the staff of SS officer Hans Kammler made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon.

In space, no one can hear you scream…about Nazis!
If this site hadn’t already posted several articles about the Nazis-from-space flick, and if IMDb didn’t have a page dedicated to it, we might be tempted to call this one an April Fool's gag (which, of course, we can't...since we've reported about it before). Directed by Timo Vuorensola with a screenplay by Johanna Sinisalo, and starring Udo Kier (Blade), Iron Sky dreams up a scenario in which the Nazis went to the moon in 1945; now it’s 2018, and they’re coming back.
If you visit Iron Sky’s photo stream over at Flickr, you can check out the latest interior design artwork for the space Nazis’ scout ship, which got posted today (we have a couple of examples below, too). It’s cool in a retro kind of way—like the lovechild of Fritz Lang and George Lucas. »
The internet phenomenon “Iron Sky”, a Finnish comedic horror film about Nazi’s secretly hiding on the moon and then invading Earth, is slated to finally start production in spring of 2010. The script is by Johanna Sinisalo, with Timo Vuorensola directing the project. A teaser trailer was released last year for the film, which is one of the latest in the production team’s style of collaborative filmmaking process. The production team reached out their online fan community to help contribute to the creative and production process, similar to Vuorrensola’s previous movies, the “Star Wreck” series. Stay tuned to Shockya.com for more on “Iron Sky”. By Costa Koutsoutis (Source: io9) »
