Entertainment One has provided us with an exclusive featurette from Iron Sky, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD October 2. Timo Vuorensola directs this outlandish comedy about a group of Nazis who have been hiding out on the moon for 70 years, and return to Earth to get their revenge. Go behind-the-scenes with visual effects supervisor Samuli Torssonen to learn how they achieved over 1,000 special effects shots, along with footage from the set.
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 the following 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis constructed a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. Their plan: travel back to Earth and re-colonize the planet. And in the not-too-distant future, mankind's greatest enemy is no longer history as the Reich strikes back in this eagerly-anticipated worldwide box office phenomenon which has enjoyed a U.S. theatrical release in over 75 markets, and makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut October 2 from Entertainment One.
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, so 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.
