Post WW2 Germans on the moon.

I remember seeing a trailer for a CGI film last year that featured WW2 German flying saucers leaving Earth to travel to the moon and then it had a clip of a German soldier on motorcycle riding across the moon surface. Did I imagine this? Is it the result of way too many late nights or has somebody actually made this and more to the point, completed it?

Bob, I think you didn't dry that keyboard properly after taking it out of the dishwasher.

Meurig, do I detect a little note of enthusiasm on your part for this film?



I remember being one of the many who watched Star Wreck. It was a wonderful film so I would be quite willing to watch this one as well.

This movie looks amazing! I can't believe I've never seen this trailer before.

I love these crazy far fetched movie ideas that are actually original and graphically immersive.

I saw a link on io9 today about this. Has anyone else heard about it? I seem to recall hearing about this movie for several years now, and they still seem to be showing the same trailer. It looks cool as hell, but I'm surprised at how long it seems to be taking.

Wreck a Movie site has a ton of these type of films in progress. That's where I saw this originally.
You also get a bit more of the behind the scenes look at them as well.

That's a neat concept. I want to know where they got the flying saucer tech.

Just saw an update of the trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Py_IndUbcxc

OK when I first saw this years back, I thought it was going to be a dark kind of thriller. Now...WTF?!
And then at 0:37...
Is that who I think it's supposed to be?! Crazy stuff

Lot's of impressive CG - anyone know anything else about this?

It premiered at the Berlin festival to..... mixed reviews No real surprise there.

It has its UK cinema release in April and I for one plan to see it. Even if it isn't any good I like seeing independently spirited stuff like this in cinemas and want to support it.

I'm not a really big fan of campy sci-fi. And Sarah Palin jokes have kind of been done to death. I don't know, but it seemed a little too over the top Then again, maybe they make it work

Just saw it today at the preview. Very impressive stuff. You wouldn't believe the budget was 7.5Meur for the entire movie. The software used for modeling was first and foremost Lightwave, I'm not sure which other packages were used.


Now, about the movie... The satire is extremely piercing and unapologetically politically incorrect when it needs to be, not overdoing it tho. The premise and humor are polarizing (the movie received properly mixed reviews), but if you are in for dark and satirical humor, I believe you will enjoy this movie a lot. Good knowledge of popular culture will help.

Despite the huge amount of rubbish and mythology and Nazi secret weapons, they did have designs for circular flying wings.

See volume 10 on this page:
http://www.up-ship.com/drawndoc/rd/rd.htm

And loads of other oddball stuff.

Why, from the Vril obviously! I don't remember "haunebu" was ever mentioned in the film, but it was during development! It's worth to google it The writers did an extensive study into the crackpottiest of all crackpot theories concerning Nazi UFOs.

All the space and aerial battles are LightWave, set extensions were done in Maya and as matte paintings.

I heard on an interview they're expecting the US release in June. It's some sort of marketing/scheduling issue they can't speed up.
