The UK release of Iron Sky took a weird turn a week ago, when Revolver – our local distributor – suddenly released the new plans for their long-anticipated UK cinema release. To the amazement of many – including ourselves – their plan is to put Iron Sky in UK theaters for *just one day*, 23.5., and then never again.
See, when I started to work on Iron Sky, I wanted to make a cinematic experience, a film that works best when you sit in a dark room with 500 other people and watch, experience, laugh and enjoy as the epic story about the Moon Nazis unfolds in front of your eyes. Now, following the UK plan laid out by Revolver, the film is out in cinemas for only one day only (and that’s WEDNESDAY of all days).
I think this is an insult to us, the filmmakers who have been working with this film for six long years. We signed up with Revolver because we wanted to have a wide cinema release, and that’s what they promised us. But more than that, it’s an insult to all the fans, friends, followers, fan investors and everyone out there who’s been waiting all these years to see the Moon Nazi mayhem known as Iron Sky to hit the cinemas.

I think its a marketing scheme. You work years on a movie and only want it to be seen for one day in the theater? Maybe after the one day is up the fans will demand to play it for more then one day and they will "Give in". Or maybe it just really sucks and know that its not going to get seen in the theaters because it sucks. So they release it for one day and then make every one else buy it thus turning a bigger profit. When people see movies in the theater they talk about them....
To close to the truth maybe?

With a trailer like that im suprized anywhere is showing it at all and not just sent straight to DVD/BluRay. It has taken what may have been a semi serious subject and made a complete joke out of it. Maybe thats what they wanted though the old double bluff?. I'm tempted to go watch for the lulz, but to be honest wouldnt waste my hard earned cash on it and instead wait for it to appear streamed online somewhere or as a torrent to DL.
