    • Synopsis
    • Iron Sky, the science fiction comedy about the Nazis from the Dark Side of the Moon, goes forth with an amazingly epic sequel. Iron Sky 2 – The Coming Race takes the audience to a journey into the Centre of the Earth. There the Vril, an alien race that came to Earth millions of years ago, are preparing their return to power.

      We learn very soon that most of the maniacs of history – tyrants, inventors, serial killers and religious fanatics – have actually been Vril agents in disguise, on a mission to destroy mankind. It was only after The President of the United States of America – a Vril herself, with some passing resemblance to a certain Sarah Palin – managed to ignite a full-scale nuclear war that nearly wiped out every living being from the surface of the Earth, that they are ready to overtake and destroy what’s left of the humankind.

      Never has man been in such a dire need for a savior, and the last hope lies within the offspring of the local Moon Nazi population and a small group of refugees who fled to the Moon 30 years ago just before the nuclear war begun.

      A hero arises among the people – the daughter of Renate Richter and James Washington – who takes the lead in saving the Eearth, accompanied by the ex-Moon Führer Kortzfleisch, also a Vril. The greatest battle of mankind awaits!

      The movie satirizes both history and capitalism. The people who managed to flee to the Moon are of course the 1% of mankind who actually had a chance to obtain the hundred-million-a-pop tickets. Thus, quite naturally, the society that has formed on the Moon adheres to their wishes. The ruling capitalistic Überelite has reinstated religion – and replaced the icons of old, Jesus and Muhammed with new patron saints: Gates, Branson and Jobs.

      Former grand narrative science fiction films, like Prometheus and Avatar, act as inspiration and guideline for Iron Sky 2 – The Coming Race, a film where comedy – both sane and insane – meets huge, effect-driven action set pieces, and where at stake is nothing less than the survival of mankind.
