Hitler Cloned

In 1970 when the remains were exhumed secret operatives took some of those remains in order to determine Hitler's DNA. His DNA was seperated or so they thought. They were then able to and grew a new adult Hitler with their technological advances and intelligent yet crazy scientists. There were a few hiccups. One being that the DNA was mixed with Eva Braun so although the adult hitler looks like him he has some, female characteristics which his handlers try to hide (boobs) and his uncanny need to smoke, wear makup and sunbath nude. All which were Eva habits which Hitler actually hated.

Lol, neat idea with the mixed up dna.
A cloned Hitler was the theme of an old Wonder Woman episode from the 70's :)

HAHAHHA,

Fantastic idea.

At first I was worried, adding a "clone Hitler" to an already some what cheesy concept might be too much...but this is pretty orginal.

like Girl Hitler from the "Venture Brothers" cartoon

Twinkle Star

This is a scene idea. Possible an opening one:

There is an empty space. Black, some stars. Very peaceful. All you can hear is some well known music. A bit same thing than they used in the 2001 Space Odyssey movie.

This time song is not Strauss but well known kid´s lullaby: Twinkle twinkle little star:

http://open.spotify.com/track/75QzCRUcoAPfH6pPDq8nJy

Soon you can find a small twinkling star on the set. It gets bigger and bigger. It´s a german beer bottle or similar slowly rotating object left behind from Moon nazis. The object gets closer and finally fill the whole screen. Camera follows the object while it fly by and turning reveals something important for the story: A moon, a space ship etc or an satellite which the bottle etc hits.

Love the idea too but there is a lot of space junk left from the american space missions

I liked very much your idea for an opening scene. I imagine it quite dramatic; it has an amazing photographic appealing. My only concern about it is that if I was in charge of the security in such a secret lunar base my rule # 1 would be "nothing gets out of the base". I mean, nothing could be left behind since it could be occasionally detected. On the other hand, "shit happens". Anyway, again, I liked your scene idea.

Thinking of Part 2!

You know, there are still some really Nazi-Fans out there who for sure won´t like that the Nazis in your movie will loose at the end of the movie. So, my idea is that you make a second ending. Let´s say, the first ending could be the normal one (the good guys win like always), but the second ending could be that at least some Nazis escape and so you could make an "open door" for a second part! They could escape, for examle to Mars! What you think?

My second idea is: We all know, that Hitler made suicide. But wait a minute! Until now nobody could find his body. So, why not put Hitler on the moon. Ok, he would be very old now. - Normally. But I researched a little bit and it´s really true that Hitler was working with black magik. So, why not make that possibility that he found the way of never getting older again. At least, if you make part 2, he could appear again! You remember, the Star Wars movie? Darth Vader returned on the next part! Why Hitler not? I know, you finished already filming the first part, but if Hitler doesn´t appear in the first part, let´s do the second part with him! Would be fascinating!

You could always have one get away in the end, after the end credits roll.

Cheesy, but a lot of films these days have an after credit preview.

Lol, I'm remembering an old episode of Wonder Woman where a bunch of neo nazis have cloned Hitler. Wonder Woman kicks their arses.

I had an idea concerning the "really Nazi-Fans" out there, but unfortunately now it's too late to get it into the movie...

Would have been funny, if the very first victim of the invasion of the moon nazis would have been a (typical) german neo-nazi who dies in a bizarre/grotesque situation right in the moment as the one big thing he always dreamt of starts to happen ^^

There is a similar plot in the "hitchhikers guide to the galaxy" - novel (not the film) ..

Carl Voluntaryist February 13, 2011 13:33 Flag

Screw Nazi-fans.
I hope they choke and [cry like little girls] when they see the ending of Iron Sky.

Where's that 'thumbs-down' button when you need one?

As for Hitler's bones, they were hidden on a Soviet base in the GDR until the '70s, then dug up and transported to Moscow.

In the '90s they were found in the archives, and positively identified.

Stalin wanted to keep an enemy-figure alive to inspire the masses. Kind of like Orwell's Goldstein, or the U.S's Bin Laden (whom they seemed to have dropped for Al Awlaki, since Usama apparently died of Kidney-failure back in 2001).

If you want a 'Hitler survived'-type movie, go watch 'They saved Hitler's Brain' or 'The Boys from Brazil' or whatever!

But I'm all for a silver-screen version of 'Rust Sky - Revenge of the Mars Commies'

EDIT: [hate-speech removed] gotta self-censor nowadays, lest they put you away for speaking your mind!

Real World Reference

Don't know if it already came up:
Maybe you could manage to get fully built ISS as a digital model to get destroyed during the invasion as a reference to real life since it should be finished in 2011 and be operated until 2020 it would still be "around".
Since there will be a bunch of announcements over ISS if it gets finished by December 2011 it you could get it as a cultural reference - if you manage to get Iron Sky finished by that time.

Making of IronSky book

I am not sure, if anyone has suggested that before, but after watching the progress of the film in "Directors Diary" clips and seeing something about different phases of it in media and here on wreckamovie and on websites seeing the wonderful photos from Frankfurt and Australia shooting and reading about the adventures, it would be nice to read a book telling the story of "Making of IronSky". memoirs of director, actors and other crew as they saw it happen.

I think it would also be a really good idea for a special edition of the bluRay/DVD (as Rammstein did with the "Völkerball" DVD) - to add a book which contains for example the diary and photos - (so that is not too much work to do it).

A complete "Making of Iron Sky" - starting from the idea (and at best including Laibachs Making of the soundtrack !) sure would be something really great too...

Kalle Max Hofmann January 13, 2011 13:40 Flag

Or you could make it a fan-funding item in the style of George Lucas' "Frames" book - imagine, he's making over 3 million dollars with these! (given that they all sell, but I guess this will happen in a matter of minutes after release)

Minimal electro techno Horst Wessel

Hi everyone, great concept for a movie and love the fact Laibach are involved too.

I've created a techno version of the "infamous" Horst Wessel song.

I know you guys have decided on a moon national anthem already, but seeing as this was the actual anthem for the 3rd reich maybe it could also be a part of the 4th?

Here it is:

cheers

Yes you have a point, just seems silly that a piece of music would cause such a furore.

Actually told Ivan from Laibach about this and he found it amusing.

Dirk Mengel January 09, 2011 02:06 Flag

it depends on the context - it is no legal problem to use it in an educational/artistic context, as for example laibach does on volk with the complete german hymn.
You can play this song in exhibitions, discussions, art etc., but not in a movie where moon nazis attack the earth... for me this is no form of fascism - I think it shows respect for the victims not to hear the hymn of their torturers in the media.

Shane Peterson January 08, 2011 23:46 Flag

Yes, it's a grey area.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Fahne_hoch

Imo the fact a piece of music being banned outright within a country though is a form of fascism itself.

Dirk Mengel January 08, 2011 20:13 Flag

the use in the movie would surely cause legal problems -it is forbidden to play/sing this song in germany (it was a hymn for The SA, the NSDAP and later the 3rd Reich), so I would strictly not recommend to use it...

Timing

What would be the best time for an attack? That question has been on my mind. Weekends and holidays are the traditional time because that's when people, military and civilian, are out of town or at home.

But there is another time that would lend itself beautifully to comedy. April 1. April Fool's Day, which happens to fall on a Sunday in 2018.

Imagine it's April Fool's Day and the Pentagon calls an emergency press conference. They announce the appearance of mysterious objects in the sky coming from the moon. They show a satellite photograph of a saucer bearing a Nazi swastika. The press treat it as a joke and refuse to believe it. It even becomes the butt of late night TV jokes. It inspires countless Youtube parodies. In the morning, the president and his cabinet have breakfast in the White House and a very frustrated general is trying to convince them it wasn't a joke. As the president says that the joke has gone on long enough and starts to dress down the general, saucers appear in the window behind him, filling the sky. Or you could have a bunch of astronomers discover the oncoming Nazis and again everyone thinks it's just an April Fool's joke.

The Nazis are not alone on the moon

Whats happen, if the nazis are not alone on the moon? Imagine, there are for example "natives" or local partisans (i.e. communist sons/daughters of the nazi-parents), who want them also kick away :)

This could be create:
- second war front for the nazis in the movie (-> more action, diversification, chance for black humor.)
- for the us-president a chance to cut the nazi-supply/logistics on the moon

i like it, more complex storyline. although the new furherer might already have ways to suppress rebellion. "intellectual clubs" with private libraries?

Greenscreen patches as merch/ltd.edition item..

As I've seen the large greenscreens on the picture today, I remembered the blog video where you were testing cheap materials to use them for this purpose.
Small patches of originally used greenscreen (maybe signed/limited) might be a suitable item for merchandising or as a goodie for the ltd. edition dvd/bluRay. Especially the making of IronSky depends so much on it...

great marketing idea

Daniel Mooney January 08, 2011 01:38 Flag

I like it. I mean many Limited Edition stuff have nothing more then like a statue or a maybe a poster at best, stuff you put up on your wall and forget about. A piece of green screen would be a great conversation starter to have hanging on your wall or anywhere else.
