Iron Sky gets a music video

Space Nazi's... I hate these guys... Iron Sky however, looks like it might just be a lot of fun. The sci-fi/action/comedy about a moon-load of bad guys descending on Earth has just posted a brand new music video that is as full of (pretty awesome looking) action as it is tongue-in-cheek humor.

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.

Iron Sky also has a TUGG campaign going at the moment. If you're unfamiliar with the site, TUGG allows people to sign a digital wish list to get screenings of movies (that normally wouldn't have any) in their neck of the woods. It's kind of like a Kickstarter campaign, but just for getting movies into certain theaters. You can check on that (or help out if you like the looks of Iron Sky) by clicking here.
