Kung Fury: Arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop.
What do you do if you have started work on an over-the-top action comedy featuring arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants, but need money to finish the project? You turn to Kickstarter, of course.
That’s exactly the situation David Sandberg found himself in late 2013. He had started work on a project called Kung Fury, spent $5,000 out of his own pocket, but was running out of money. On Kickstarter, he asked for $200,000 to finish a 30 minutes version of the movie, but the internet decided they really wanted to see a movie about the super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, and threw well over $600,000 at Sandberg.
Now it looks like he has actually delivered on his promises. The movie was released yesterday, and it has already racked over 3 million views on YouTube. Enjoy:
There’s also a Kung Fury game available on Steam: Kung Fury: Street Rage.
