The Russian team that went to shoot the first movie in space has returned to Earth. The three landed on Earth after a 12-day mission to the space station. Actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko traveled to space for the first time in history to shoot the film ‘Challenge’.

The trio returned from Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft with Yulia Peresild, director Klim Shipenko, 38, and astronaut and crew commander Anton Skapelerov.

Challenge is a space themed film. Yulia plays the role of Dr. Shenya, a cardiac surgeon who comes to treat Ivanov, a spacecraft orbiting the Earth, when he suddenly falls ill and is in critical condition. The theme of the film is cardiac surgery performed in space.

Yulia, 37, with Estonian roots, has been in the film / theater industry since 2006. Her notable films include Fogg (2012) and Battle for Sevastopol (2015). Director Shipenko selected Yulia for the challenge from a list of 20 people who were invited to audition. The film stars Olig Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov, the station’s Russian cosmonauts.

The film is produced by Channel One, a state-owned channel in Russia. Insiders say the space shooting was in the special interest of Dmitry Rogos, head of the Russian space agency Roskomos. It was widely criticized by Roscomos and the Russian media.

Rogosin did not back down, though critics argued that the space industry and the International Space Station were not venues for entertainment and travel, but for promoting research and knowledge. He saw space shooting as an opportunity to show Russia’s space power to the world. The script of the film was edited by Rogosin to match the space realities.

NASA’s first plan to shoot a film in space. NASA officials have been in talks with Tom Cruise for this. Elon Musk, owner of SpaceX, the US space agency, was also involved. The producer, Doug Leeman, came forward willing to pay for the film. It was a full-fledged space adventure film in everyone’s mind. Tom Cruise was preparing for this.

He also held talks with four astronauts who have lived in space for a long time. In the old days, the Cold War between Russia’s ancestral Soviet Union and the US was in space, as it was in all regions. The Soviet Union was defeated by the Vostok 1 mission, the US goal of first crossing space. Yuri Gagarin became the first Russian man to reach space.

Hollywood’s dream of shooting for the first time in space has been shattered by Russian cinema. If Cruz had any desire left to be the first actor to go into space, that wouldn’t be possible either. William Shatner, who played the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the popular sci-fi movie series Star Trek, will also be released into space this month. The 90-year-old Shatuner will travel on the Blue Origin’s Blue Shepard. With this, Shatner also holds the record for being the oldest person to reach space.
