Check this teaser for the film Iron Sky:
In 1945 the Nazis went to the moon. In 2018 they are coming back.
That right there is one sweet, sweet premise.

How could you imply that the Nazi’s coming back is “sweet”. I expected more from you.
Let’s be clear here: I don’t like Nazis. I loathe and abhor Nazis both past and present. Anyone who actually knows me also knows the idea of me sympathizing or (looking at our pal Ben Conover now) actually being a Nazi is beyond offensive.
But let’s face it: Nazis make perfect villains. There’s no moral ambiguity, and no matter how human you try to make them, it always comes down to ‘But you’re a Nazi’.
So yes, the idea of space Nazis for a film is indeed sweet. It’s patently ridiculous (not to mention very Hellboy), and the idea that we’d be attacked from space not by alien invaders, but by the remnants of humanity’s worst is exceptionally clever.
