Whether it’s Star Wars, Star Trek, Interstellar, Gravity, or The Martian, all great space movies and series have one thing in common: They’re shot from the first scene to the last scene on Earth. That will change next week. Then an actress and producer/photographer go into space. They stay for about two weeks at the ISS, to shoot a movie there, 400 kilometers above Earth. It is the first extraterrestrial movie ever shot. For Russia, which sells the flight, the mission is a welcome source of income.
The astronaut gets sick
Actress Julia Peresild is 37 years old. She plays the main role in the movie Vizov (The Challenge). In the movie, an astronaut becomes ill. He can’t return to Earth, so the surgeon played by Peresild goes to space to operate on him and save his life. The camera in the new film was done by Klim Sjipenko, who will accompany him to the International Space Station.
On their way to the International Space Station, Peresild and Sypenko were joined by experienced cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov. They will launch together on Tuesday morning around 10.55am Dutch time. After a little more than three hours in flight, they arrived at the International Space Station.

There are actually three Americans, two Russians, a Japanese and a Frenchman living on the International Space Station. On the night of October 16-17, Peresild and Sypenko should return to Earth.
