The 2012 cult oddity Iron Sky has spawned a feverish fan base that is set only to be quenched by the incoming sequel Iron Sky: The Coming Race. Director Timo Vuorensola and his team have finally unleashed the first teaser trailer for this follow-up, which promises an even weirder experience than the first!
20 years ago Earth was ruined in a nuclear apocalypse. What's left of humanity is trapped on the Moon, which is now falling apart as well. Mankind's only hope is to send a small team into the Center of the Earth to retrieve the mythical Holy Grail. All that stands in their way is an ancient race of reptilian humanoids and an army of dinosaurs. How hard could it be to survive? Find out in this first »
The Moon Nazis, it would appear, are looking inward. No, not in the emotional touchy-feely sense. That's not their style. They're looking inward literally, as in to the center of the earth, in this new promo for Timo Vuorensola's Iron Sky: The Coming Race.Freshly released at the Afm is a new promo for the film, one that isn't a trailer so much as it is a bridge piece meant to fill the gap between the original Iron Sky and what is coming in the sequel. And what is coming is a major shift, clearly, one that involves lizard people at the center of the earth. Check it out below!...

A teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race has been released.
The sequel to the 2012 film reveals Nazis living underground in the 'Hollow Earth'.
Set 20 years after the first film, it sees the last survivors of humanity living in the Nazis' formerly secret moon base.
With resources running out, they set their sights on the promise of the Hollow Earth.
The filmmakers are seeking to crowdfund the project.
This time last year, Timo Vuorensola promised us "Hitler riding a dinosaur in the centre of the Earth" in his forthcoming Iron Sky sequel The Coming Race. Twelve months later he's already blown his money shot in this promo, just unveiled at Helsinki's Night Visions festival and the American Film Market. "Yeah, but that's a money shot worth blowing," Vuorensola grins.Not intended to be part of the film itself, the promo serves as a bridge between the end of Iron Sky and the start of the new movie, set 20 years later. Following a holocaust, "All that’s left of humanity survives in the Moon Fortress," Vuorensola explained to Empire last week. "It’s the survival of mankind: a small group of ex-Nazis, kids, old women... basically anyone who didn't leave for the war, plus those who were rich enough to get off Earth with their private space shuttle tickets. »
After giving us a poster and teaser last week, we now have the first full trailer for Iron Sky: The Coming Race, director Timo Vuorensola’s crowd-funded sequel to his cult 2012 ‘Nazis on the Moon’ flick Iron Sky, and of course it looks completely bonkers. Check it out below… Twenty years after the events of […]

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. But it's nonetheless rare to see a fictional universe with a woman in one of the nation's top three positions of political power. (Yep, even in fake realities, politics is a man's game.) And historically speaking, Hollywood has played it as a joke more often than not. So which fictional female presidents, vice presidents »

Dead Again: Wirkola Outstays Welcome of Outlandish Gimmick
For those that were generally amused by Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola’s breakout festival hit Dead Snow (2009), in which a group of skiers were accosted by a gaggle of Nazi zombies, then avoiding its sequel, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead may be in order if you wish to retain your pleasant memories of the first chapter. Suffering from a rampage of defiant narrative mistakes often administered in unnecessary sequels, this rehash is laconic, unenthusiastic and inherently routine. Now, the motivation of these zombie zealots has to be rationalized and explained to some degree, which only kills the slightly amusing idiocy of the first film—a feeling akin to the difference between joking about an easy target like Christian Scientologists, and then, say, being forced to attend an eight hour seminar that seriously teaches its religious tenets.

German thesp Udo Kier will be honored by the Munich Film Festival with its CineMerit Award, given to an actor whose career spans Europe and the U.S.
Kier’s career is full of daring choices, and he’s worked with such icons as Andy Warhol (“Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein”), Rainer Werner Fassbinder (“Lili Marleen,” “Lola” and “Berlin Alexanderplatz”) and Lars von Trier (nine films including both volumes of “Nymphomaniac”).
“Udo Kier is an actor who leaves a lasting impression, no matter what the role,” said festival director Diana Iljine in a statement. “He is an actor who is not afraid to take chances. And many of them have paid off. Udo Kier himself is a work of art.”

The best actor award for Charlie.s Country.s David Gulpilil in Certain Regard and a standing ovation for David Michôd's thriller The Rover capped off a memorable Cannes Film Festival and market for Australian cinema.
It was that rare combination of critical acclaim for the Aussie films that screened in the festival and a solid volume of deal-making for films that were sold at the market.
.We had consistent feedback from sales agents and buyers on the calibre of Australian talent and projects, which they are tracking with real interest,. Screen Australia head of marketing Kathleen Drumm tells If.
.Producers reported fewer but quality meetings as momentum around Australia continues to enable good marketplace access. However it remains hard to raise finance without high profile cast, directorial talent, demonstrable marketing hooks, clarity on audience and a budget that matches a project's commerciality.
.Sales for Australian films were solid despite the reported soft marketplace, »

Exclusive: Sequel will be directed by Timo Vuorensola and will see several of the original cast return.
Earlier this month the film-makers behind the project began raising equity crowdfunding for Iron Sky Universe Ltd, the company owning the Iron Sky franchise. A second sequel is being planned as is a prequel – and a special promo has already been shot.

Cult hit Iron Sky has crowdfunded over $200,000 for a sequel and further development of the brand, including other films, video games and a TV series based on the Nazis-on-the-moon original.
The Finnish production company behind the film are now pitching the sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race, to buyers at Cannes Film Festival.
Iron Sky’s campaign is unique in that instead of simply accepting donations from fans, as did the recent Veronica Mars crowdfunding effort, the producers are actually selling shares in Iron Sky Universe, the company that owns the Iron Sky brand.
The crowdfunding campaign itself has been extended until Tuesday, 20th May, with plans to carry out a second round of funding in the works for later this year.
The original Iron Sky film was a riot, and definitely on the better end of the ‘they-know-they’re-shit B-movies’ spectrum, so hopefully the sequel will get picked up at Cannes. »

You would never guess from the level of international co-productions heading toward Poland that the country remains one of the few in this corner of Europe without cash-back incentives.
Agnieszka Odorowicz, topper at the Polish Film Institute, is justifiably bullish on the rising number of such joint projects — currently at around 40 per year — but has said the lack of sweeteners is an issue that needs to be addressed. But even without them, the institute’s work is clearly reaping rewards.
Since 2005, some 130 production companies have set up shop in Poland, many of them capitalizing on financial support from the Pfi, which administers a film fund created through a tax on television, exhibitors and distribs passed a decade ago. More and more of these new players, the recipients of more than 500 film grants, are partnering with foreigners to the benefit of both parties. In 2014, the institute’s budget was $42 million for development, »
