First, confession: I did not look too much to see if anyone else has been here.
Second, statement: From what I have been able to gather, the sci fi 'Iron Sky' will NOT be widely available in the USA. I contacted Carmike Cinemas
(they own the local screens) and they couldn't even say they had heard of it.
Kind of sad... in this globalist world, a small studio creates a great hoot and the largest nation of potential viewers has declined to screen it.
You shouldn't really be surprised by this. How often do you see foreign movies at your theater? It looks like the movie might be in English, so that
helps. Unless you live in a big city or a college town you usually won't get movies like this and even then it's still iffy. This sounds like kind
of goofy, sci-f so it's niche. When "Attack the Block"came out the nearest theater that was showing it was an hour away.
It sucks, but it kind of makes sense. Small studio releases from America often get limited releases, so ones from other countries are going to get
even less attention. Also, it just came out. It takes time to get over here. This isn't a huge, multi-country release.
At any rate, it'll get a DVD release.
