The long wait for the newest Iron Sky film: The Coming Race is almost on us. Produced by Iron Sky and Jeridoo Universe, the film will have an exclusive release in Helsinki on January 16th 2019 before a wider release across Europe and the United States. The sequel has been heavily anticipated ever since it was announced in 2012, shortly after the first film was released –seven years ago.
The Iron Sky and Jeridoo joint production has gone against the usual American studio system by being using non-traditional funding methods. More than 7,000 fans from 75 different countries have helped raise money to complete the project on Indigogo. Part of the fundraising effort was giving fans roles in the film including extras or the chance to be eaten by a dinosaur. The fundraising alone raised over a million dollars while the rest of the $15 million budget came from more traditional sources.
