Kaikkien aikojen kotimainen scifieepos, vuosia hartaudella työstetty Iron Sky tärähtää elokuvateattereihin 4.4. ja tulevana viikonloppuna tullaan näkemään mitä mielenkiintoisinta leffaväkeä teattereiden auloja kansoittamassa. Varusteleka ja Iron Sky -tiimi kehottavatkin pääsiäisen aikana (3.4.-9.4.) elokuviin marssivan kansan pukeutumaan tilaisuuteen sen vaatimalla arvokkuudella!

Kaivakaa esiin siis kypäränne, koppalakkinne ja muut teemaan sopivat taisteluvarusteenne lähtiessänne tsekkaamaan Iron Sky, valokuvatkaa itsenne Iron Sky -leffan hengessä pukeutuneena elokuvateatterissa ja ladatkaa kuvat Facebook-sivuillemme tai linkittäkää ne tämän blogipostauksen kommentteihin!

Paras puku palkitaan 300€:n lahjakortilla Varustelekaan JA 300€:n lahjakortilla Iron Sky Storeen. Toiseksi tulleelle on tarjolla 100€:n lahjakortit, ja kolmoselle lähetetään laatikollinen Scho-Ka-Kolaa!

Valintaraati koostuu kuunatsiasiantuntijoista, joiden tiedetään arvostavan etenkin itsetuunattuja kaasunaamareita, seksikkäitä univormuja (sekä miehillä että naisilla!), mustia nahkasaappaita, mutta ennen kaikkea omaperäisyyttä!

Voittajat valitaan 10.4.

Raising our Dream Machines into the Sky

March 26th, 2012 by Timo Vuorensola

It is enough to have the strength
and knowledge
to raise our dream machines
into the sky

- Laibach / B-Machine

We started it in Tampere, and we’ll unleash it here as well. Iron Sky Premiere Gala in Tampere is happening today. You can follow us live on Katsomo and almost-live on YouTube. See you Under the Iron Sky.

The first (almost) 5 minutes of Iron Sky!

March 18th, 2012 by Timo Vuorensola

Releasing the first five minutes has been quite a long process that the Sneak Peek supporters have been following from late 2010 on. We’ve been releasing new iterations of the first five minutes (almost) monthly over at Sneak Peek, starting with script, moving on to storyboards, early animatics, first green screen footage and eventually ending up with the finished material now viewable everywhere. Since it sort of got out to the Internet, I think it’s about time for us to release it “officially” – so here we go, the first (almost) five minutes of Iron Sky.

If you want to follow up how we ended up with the finished material, whether out of interest or to study the process, all you need to do is head over to Sneak Peek and follow back to mid November when we begun the process. Sneak Peek has always been a form of support for us – ‘Peekers can decide how much they pay for the access, starting with 1€, and they’ll get access to the Sneak Peek area of Iron Sky pages. There, we’ve released almost monthly a new revision of the first five minutes, but in addition to this, we’ve used it as a test bed for several projects we’ve planned releasing. The first version of our trailer was bombed down by the Sneak Peekers, thank god, and we never released it (rather used the comments for good and re-vamped the trailer to what it ended up being now, and it was good, because so far we’ve reached a staggering 7 million views with it, more than trailers of Battleship and Spider-Man, and other 100+ million Hollywood juggernauts!), the Sneak Peekers got to decided which poster we went forward with, and helped us a lot during the production of the film, not only financially (and to be honest, it wasn’t there for money, the entrance fee being so small, but it was rather a gate so that only those who *really* care enough to dig out their credit card and pay even just one euro, got in – in that way we were able to keep it for HC followers only), but also artistically and marketing-wise.

Our initial idea when we started Sneak Peek was to release the first five minutes at one point, and – well, now is as good time as any. Hope you enjoyed it! And great big thanks to all the Sneak Peekers who’ve been with us along these years, hope you’ve had as much fun as we’ve had.

Iron Sky‘s release is nearing! It’s hitting theaters 4.4. in Finland and during April in many places around the world (more info here)! We’ve been screening the film in Berlin, Norway and Texas, USA, and the feedback has been absolutely awesome. We’ve had great reviews (Mark Kermode, Screen International, Wired to mention a few) and the audience loves the film. Right now we are doing a big tour around Finland (20 cities!), the ultimate bad-ass huge international gala premiere of Iron Sky is on 26.3. in the home town of Iron Sky, Tampere, Finland, topped with Laibach show, and then we’ll go to Germany, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Australia… giving the film a grand and glorious final push!

For Finnish audience, you can head over to Finnkino’s site and get your tickets for the 4.4. opening here!

Iron Sky Publicity Stunt

March 14th, 2012 by Timo Vuorensola

Here’s challenge to you all: come up with the best publicity stunt for Iron Sky, film it, release on YouTube and let us know about it – we’ll pick the best public stunt and reward it by hauling your and your 1 friend’s ass to Finland for Iron Sky Gala Premiere in Tampere 26.3.2012, Finland (officially the best city in the world and if you disagree, I hate you), with all the stars and the filmmakers present, topped with a Laibach live show. No matter where you are, if we like your stunt, we’ll fly you and your friend / lover / fuck buddy / mother in and get you a hotel room for 2 nights.

Here’s how it works:

1) Come up with a cool way to spread the word of Iron Sky. The message is: “IRON SKY IN THEATERS 4.4.” – everything else is up to you.

2) Film the publicity stunt – it needs to be something that takes place somewhere in public space.

3) Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do – i.e. *don’t* get yourself hurt & *don’t* do any racist / stupid / offensive / idiotic / retarded shit. This is supposed to be fun.

4) Release the video on YouTube and publish it on our Facebook Wall. The title of the video needs to contain the words IRON SKY PUBLICITY STUNT.

We’ll pick the best video on 21.3., submissions are acceptable ’till 21.3. MIDNIGHT FINNISH TIME, after that no more of that stuff will be taken in.

Go crazy, but – again – don’t do anything stupid!
