OK kids, the guys over at Energia Productions secured a US distribution deal for Iron Sky finally. However, due to the quirky nature of independent cinema, the film will only be shown in theatres where enough presale tickets are sold to justify showing it. So, basically, TNL (well, me) established a dialog with them and the good people at Tugg to bring a showing of the movie to the Miami area.
In a nutshell, Tugg enables anyone to bring the movies they want to see to local theatres. It's like a Kickstarter for cinema buffs and independent filmmakers.
So, basically, here's where we come in. Provided enough presale tickets are sold (41) the film will be shown at the AMC Aventura 24 at 7:30 PM on Thursday August 23rd
Ticket cost: $10.00 - Ten Dollars.

Yes, if we don't meet our funding goal you get your ten dollars back.
OK with that out of the way, about the film:
In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.
When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act!
Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.
