Announcement: "Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning" movie
« on: October 06, 2005, 08:57:57 am »

If you are a sci-fi fan check this free full-length indie movie. It is great fun and has good quality for a practically zero-budget project.

From: Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning
Quote
"An epic film about the emperor of the world in the far reaches of the galaxy."

The first Finnish full-length sci-fi parody is made from astounding special effects, action and loads of dark humor. It is the product of a core group of five Finns and many people who've helped us during the seven years it has been in the making. You can download the entire movie by clicking here. For free, of course.

This internet launch has generated a huge amount of interest:
http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=%22star+wreck%22&ie=UTF-8&scoring=d

I guess the main server is congested. There has been over 600,000 downloads already after the first of October. That's why they are now offering the Bittorrent P2P links in the first place.

I got the HQ XviD version from the ftp.funet.fi mirror in 30 minutes.

You could try one of these mirrors:

Is "Pirkinning" a sly complement to Pirk or Pirx (in Tales of Pirx the Pilot, by Stanislaw Lem)? Or is it a finnish word?

The word has no meaning in Finnish. I quess it is just a play on words and an inside joke.

The main character is Captain (later Emperor) James B. Pirk (almost like Kirk) and one of the Babylon 5 TV movies is "Babylon 5: In the Beginning". Probably those guys have read Lem's Pirx the Pilot books too.
