The filmmakers behind the scifi comedy IRON SKY are turning once again to crowdfunding to get their sequel off the ground. Titled IRON SKY: THE COMING RACE, the launch is taking place on Indiegogo.

So far, Iron Sky is the most successfully crowdfunded film in the world that has been released, raising $1.5 million from the crowd. The total budget of the film was $10 million. They say the aim with the sequel is to crush crowdfunding records with help from their growing community of fans (though with Veronica Mars' recent win, we'll see how they fair.)




From the team:
"Because Iron Sky had its genesis online and our funding model rose from those origins, people assumed we would follow an alternative distribution route, but we in fact raised other monies that put us on a more traditional path. With the sequel we want to return to our roots and see what new paths we can forge in online and alternative distribution. One of the things we learned with Iron Sky, was the power of our internet community" says producer Tero Kaukomaa. "With their help we believe we can build a working distribution model for such a fan driven film, a model where the film will be available day and date and world wide. We welcome our distributors to join, but our goal is not to be dependant on any entity but our fans."

I really wished the 1st Iron Sky was better. I'd had high hopes for it, but sadly, it was a farce, rather than a comedy

Agreed. The attempts at satire came off as offensive and stereotypically juvenile.

And although I can't stand Sara Palin there's a much bigger trove of irony to be found in New Nixon.
