Sci-fi comedy Iron Sky finds distributor for Nordics
The sequel to the outlandish Finnish-German sci-fi cult film, Iron Sky, will world premiere in Finland next Valentine’s Day. Iron Sky: The Coming Race will be the second release in the Iron Sky trilogy.
The Valentine’s Day release for Iron Sky: The Coming Race was announced after Iron Sky Universe and SF Studios signed a distribution contract for the Nordic countries. A release in Berlin will also soon follow the world premiere in Finland.
“The Iron Sky Universe team have such passion and frenzy for moviemaking, that it’s an honour to get to distribute their new movie,” says Timo Räisänen, head of Theatrical Distribution at SF Studios in the press release. “Our goal is to bring the charming dark humour of Iron Sky into the attention of a wide audience. It’s good that there are films made in Finland, where even the sky is not the limit.”
In the first Iron Sky film, Nazis were found hiding out on the dark side of the moon planning an invasion.
In Iron Sky: The Coming Race, the world has been devastated by a nuclear war and the survivors are sheltering on the Moon. Then, they embark on a survival journey into the hollow Earth, where an ancient shapeshifting lizard species resides.
Finnish director Timo Vuorensola is at the helms again and the cast includes Lara Rossi (Crossing Lines), Vladimir Burlakov (Deutchland 83) and Udo Kier (Blade, Armageddon). The budget for the film is 17 million euros.
