‘Iron Sky’ is a new sci-fi film due for release next year. Set in 2018 when, having fled into space in 1945 to hide out on the dark side of the moon, the Nazis return to claim the earth.
It’s directed by Finnish director Timo Vuorensola and EMI has teamed up with the producers to sell and distribute the movie’s merchandise around the world. In an innovative move, fans will be invited to submit their own ideas and designs, the best of which will be incorporated into the official range.
Vuorensola’s previous movie was ‘Star Wreck’ which has built up a sizeable following around the world, giving ‘Iron Sky’ a large and active fan base with whom the film’s creators keep in regular touch. As Vurorensola explains: “One of the driving forces of our production is keeping in direct contact with our fans, both in social media and in our collaborative movie creation platform Wreckamovie. Involving the fans in creating our merchandise and fan products is the logical next step.”
