That is how you make a trailer.

The fact that it is triple funded means we should see it.

Brendan (mistershine) | 930 comments Ha, I remember seeing this when their kickstarter launched, glad they got funded.

I was trying to remember where I saw this before.

It was on one of Tom Merritt's other podcasts that I watch.

He, Brian Brushwood & guest Fraser Cain were as excited to see this as we are. (Skip to 29 minutes)

Trike | 8291 comments I had forgotten about this. Still funny. Looks like the Iron Sky guys have taken the "riding a T. rex" bit for their sequel. I just looked at the Kung Fury website and they have a recent update stating they're still working on it.

The old maxim is true: "You can have it done right, done fast or done cheap. Pick any two."

It will be finished later this month (February) and be out in March.
So it's not far away.
Here is an update video with some cool "making of" scenes and a bit more action.

Tamahome | 6186 comments I don't know. All the CG reminds me of the 2nd Charlie's Angels movie.

Yeah, but you live in the future. It's still January here.

That's why I put February in brackets. For you people who live in the past ;-)

Sky | 665 comments Sweet...that is the full length movie?

Rob (robzak) | 6740 comments Mod
30 minutes..but yeah, it's the full thing.


message 18: by Sky (new)

Sky | 665 comments It looks awesome. But they raised $630k on kickstarter, so $21k/minute?

The first two minutes alone are worth all that money.

I wish I had backed them.


message 21: by Tamahome (new)

Tamahome | 6186 comments It's up to 1.9 million views. That's almost as many dollars as John Scalzi makes.

Serendi | 829 comments Talk about action-packed! Whee!

AndrewP (andrewca) | 2469 comments Did anyone else watch the entire movie last night? Only 45 min long. Fun but a bit of a disappointment as, like a lot of movies, most of the best bits were in the trailer. Good for a fan made movie though.


message 27: by Rob, Roberator (new)

Rob (robzak) | 6740 comments Mod
Best bits in the trailer? None of my favorite moments (just off the top of my head) were in the trailer.

(view spoiler)

Also 45 minutes? I thought it was only 30? Is there a longer version?

Personally I was not disappointed in the least, and found the bits from the trailer just as entertaining as the first time.

Aaron Nagy | 379 comments I would add to that list Rob.

1) Hacking back in time, which was in the trailer and

Probably only 30 minutes of actual film. It was a total of 45mins (7:30 - 8:15pm) in my area, including the intro and making of clips from the creator.

Rob (robzak) | 6740 comments Mod
Haha. Yeah I liked your #2 as well Aaron. That was a pleasant surprise.

I'd have put hacking the top up at the top of my list of things in the trailer, but it sort of fell down the list with other stuff.

Maybe that kind of proves Andrew's point a little though. I maybe didn't like that as much the second time because I had seen it already.

Ah well, as far as trailers go it didn't spoil too much, especially for something so short. At least IMHO.

Tassie Dave | 3506 comments Mod
I loved it. Any longer than 30 minutes and it might have over stayed it's welcome. Those crazy Swedes :-)

Your No.2 scene Rob, was my highlight moment.


message 32: by Rob, Roberator (new)

Rob (robzak) | 6740 comments Mod
Totally agree. 30 minutes was the perfect length.


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1861 comments Agreed, it was just the right size, and the right amount of ridiculous (lots) for maximum enjoyment. :D

Reiner | 2 comments "Struck by lightning and bitten by a cobra". Priceless.


message 35: by Trike (new)

Trike | 8291 comments It gets better: they've made a 1990s sidescroller game.

AndrewP (andrewca) | 2469 comments One of my favorite moments.. "Don't hassle the Hof !"


message 39: by Alison (new)

Alison | 1 comments It was awesome, my favourite quote: "Tank you..."

I thought it was really well done and just the right amount of time although ntaurally I'll be hapyp with any more production :)


message 40: by Bernardo (new)

Bernardo | 28 comments yeah...that's my bicep


message 41: by Trike (new)

Trike | 8291 comments BTW, if you like this, I highly recommend Black Dynamite. It's an equally hilarious send-up of 1970s blaxploitation films.

One of the best movies of all time. I would even say more hilarious, not just equally.

There are multiple different edits of this movie as well. I think the Netflix one might of been my favorite edit?


message 43: by Trike (new)

Trike | 8291 comments Another movie I'm watching on Netflix right now which is solidly in this genre: Bounty Killer.

It's not a good movie, but at times it's a freaking GREAT movie.
