Autocadded needs to be an adjective.

What can Russia contribute? Soviet era rockets and a vast uninhabited mass of land for capsules to crash into?

By 2030 China and Russia will be at war after China decides that Siberia has more water than it needs

As if China gives a shiat where it's capsules land.

Moonwater vodak would be cool to try.

By 2035 we'll have 500 people on Mars.  Yawn.

The last time they tried that, the US told them to not make it come over there.  With nukes.

Meh, possibly just mutual cock stroking to strengthen ties to help with the Ukrainian takeover.

If Russia and China were able to cooperate politically and economically, the result would be a formidable adversary. Let's hope it never happens.

Came for Iron Sky reference, leaving satisfied. But before I go I have to say that the Awesomeness-Suck disparity for the original Iron Sky trailer and the movie is truly staggering. There are plenty of movies that have had good trailers and ended up being horrible, but for Iron Sky it really is staggering how absolutely brilliant the trailer is and how completely and utterly schittastic the movie ended up being.

Ah yes, two paranoid military super powers right next door to each other gunna cooperate on a moon base. OK then, guess we'll see how that goes.

Russia will "cooperate" with China in that they will tag along for the ride and contribute next to nothing except political points because their domestic space program is an absolute clown show.

Well, paying attention to trailers at all is your first mistake.

And, although I nitpick the hell out of things that matter to me, I give Iron Sky the hugest of passes... like the size of a ping pong table... for being made by Europeans about Nazis and for being strange, goofy, cynical, and edgy... but, well, non-threatening. I just can't hate it. Just like Starship Troopers, don't take it or any of its sequels too seriously and just sit back and let the WTF flow.

Rhetorical question: How COULD Iron Sky have been good? And knowing that, and knowing that they made it anyway is a freaking miracle in itself.

One of these days, I am going to watch the Iron Sky sequel. I have low expectations, and that is how I want it.

And as if that is not enough editorializing, might as well say that "technical" film making has gotten so good that just plain ol entertainment and weirdness will be making a comeback one of these days.

And yes, this is on topic because... because... this is being reported in THE STAR, which means that it is a trial balloon for an Iron Sky III plot.

That show could have been so good, if only they'd made it watchable.

The only attention I pay to trailers is as stand alone mini-movies. In other words, if I see a trailer like that for Iron Sky and think that it is really awesome I never assume that the movie will be equally awesome or even good. But, after I have seen both I do compare my enjoyment of them.

In the long run, they both have more interests that conflict with each other than they do with us.

I liked the first season.  The second was not good.  I expect the third to be terrible.
