I really enjoyed Iron Sky. The film had some mixed reviews but the people behind it knew their audience and, for their audience, they delivered spectacularly. And now there’s a sequel on the way.
Iron Sky the Coming Race takes place 20 years after and takes our heroes from the first film into the Hollow Earth.
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.
As with Iron Sky, The Coming Race will be inspired by pulp science fiction of the early 20th Century. They are promising crazy concepts and an incredible visual world of dinosaurs and aliens but, this time, with a focus more on adventure and discovery.
Imagine Iron Sky meeting Indiana Jones on a safari in Jurassic Park.
I’m sold. Here’s a trailer.
