Russian crew arrives at the ISS to film first movie in space

Description

Russian actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko arrive at the International Space Station (ISS) in a bid to best the United States and film the first movie in orbit. Peresild, 37, Shipenko, 38, took off from the Russia-leased Baikonur Cosmodrome in ex-Soviet Kazakhstan as scheduled, but they belatedly docked at the ISS at 1222 GMT after veteran cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov switched to manual control. The Russian crew is set to beat a Hollywood project that was announced last year by "Mission Impossible" star Tom Cruise together with NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX. IMAGES
