Half a decade in the making, a sequel to the 2012 film Iron Sky was funded on Indiegogo back in 2015, and we've learned today that Timo Vuorensola’s Iron Sky 2: The Coming Race is finally coming to the States this year, with Vertical Entertainment picking up the U.S. rights.
Deadline reports that “Vertical plans a July 19 theatrical and digital release in the U.S.”
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.”
"Iron Sky 2: The Coming Race already has tremendous following established by the first film, while ratcheting up the insanity and fun,” said Rich Goldberg, co-president of Vertical. “Driven by impressive visual effects and a story that continues to grow more and more unpredictable as it unfolds, we can’t wait for audiences to experience this wild ride. We’re confident that this sequel will build an even bigger following."
The film stars Lara Rossi, Tom Green, Vladimir Burlakov, Kit Dale and Udo Kier.
