FANS TO GET EATEN BY A DINOSAUR IN IRON SKY 2
Iron Sky The Coming Race filmmakers have launched today a new perk to the fans and fan funders – to get eaten on the big screen by a dinosaur. Pioneering a new level of fan involvement, the director Timo Vuorensola and Iron Sky team offers fans a possibility to support the film and choose a way a dinosaur consumes them in the film.
Three different levels are introduced – on the lowest level, fans get to be a part of a mass scene of fleeing humans being killed by a bewildered dinosaur. The second level, fan funders are given a possibility to have a close-up scene of their demise. On the highest level, one lucky fan gets chomped to pieces by a T-Rex in great detail and multiple camera angles. Fans are also offered a role as a Bad Ass Vril and become a lizard people.
“A flashy death scene can be one of the most vivid moments in a film”, director Timo Vuorensola states. “Instead of tossing a great death to random extras, I want to offer this opportunity to the people I’m doing this film together with – our fans.”
Producer Tero Kaukomaa sees this also as a great way for the most enthusiastic fans to show their support on the production and be a visible part of it. “Fans has always been the needed nutrition to keep us going. Its great to get that on the screens.” Kaukomaa says.
Although getting eaten by a dinosaur sounds violent, there’s no real danger involved.
“Our dinosaurs are well-trained, and we assure no fan gets hurt in making the film”, Vuorensola adds.
