[News Bites] Rob Zombie’s Big H Team, New Album Details; ‘Snow Piercer’ Gets Expensive; ‘Iron Sky’ Trailer

First, above we’ve posted the trailer premiere for the Nazis in space sci-fi pic Iron Sky, another Tugg project. Directed by Timo Vuorensola, “In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers…and now they’re coming back to claim Earth for their own. Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end, when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.

Twitch reports via Naver (in Korean) that, due to some reported problems with funding, South Korean media giant CJ Entertainment is set to invest 45 billion won (or $40 million) into the global co-production Snow Piercer. The film, which is CJ’s biggest investment to date, is currently in production at the famed Barrandov studios in Prague and set for release next year. The French graphic novel follows a group of people on a train without a final destination, struggling to survive after the end of the world brings on a cataclysmic ice age. The Host‘s Bong Joon-ho directs.

And in the world of Rob Zombie comes the announcement of his new remix album Mondo Sex Head, which unsurprisingly features his wife Sheri Moon as part of the art. Speaking of Sheri, Zombie has also shared a look at the “Big H Radio Team” from his forthcoming The Lords of Salem. The below art is a faux magazine “Dig Boston” featuring Herman Jackson (Ken Foree), Heidi LaRoc (Sheri Moon Zombie) & Herman Salvador (Jeff Daniel Phillips). “Salem’s #1 radio show does it again,” said the rocker.
