    The film "Pilot" will be presented at MAKS-2021, 09.07.2021.

    On July 23, at the MAKS-2021 air show, a presentation of a new film by Renat Davletyarov "Pilot" will take place, dedicated to the feat of Soviet pilots during the Great Patriotic War. The presentation of the film will take place in the pavilion of the aviation developer - the Sukhoi company.

    The protagonist of the film is pilot Nikolai Komlev, who miraculously survived the crash of an aircraft shot down in the enemy's rear. Nikolai will have to break through from the enemy's rear to his own, overcoming severe frost and hunger, defending himself from a pack of wolves and a special Wehrmacht detachment, thrown in search of a Soviet pilot.

    The film is based on the exploits of nine Soviet pilots who went through similar tests. The most widely known story is the story of Alexei Petrovich Maresyev, who returned to the aviation, despite the amputation of his legs due to a serious injury. When creating the film, the authors paid tribute to all nine heroes, their names and stories can be found in the final credits of the film.

    “The feat of Maresyev is superbly described in the story of Polevoy. For many Russian people, including me, this is one of the most important books that has formed a basic understanding of what is resilience, overcoming, the desire to live, love for the Motherland. I really want such stories not to be forgotten, multiplied, filmed. This film is a dedication to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War, who overcame countless trials and won, ”said Ekaterina Baranova, Rostec Communications Director. - The main roles in the film were played by Pyotr Fedorov and Anna Peskova. The film will be released on November 4 and will be of interest to both a wide audience and people who are in love with aviation".

    The film presentation is attended by the leading actors - Pyotr Fedorov and Anna Peskova, the film producers - Dmitry Pristanskov and Vlad Ryashin. Another famous guest of the presentation is test pilot Vladimir Barsuk, who piloted the original Il-2 attack aircraft during the war, restored at SibNIA, which was used in flight scenes. The director of the institute and the attack aircraft have been the constant guests of MAKS in recent years, the IL-2 is demonstrated both in the flight program of the air show and as part of the static exposition.

    The film was created by the film companies "Interfest", StarMedia, "DAProduction" with the support of the Cinema Foundation, the Russian Military-Historical Society, a strategic partner - the State Corporation Rostec, official partners - the holding "Ruselectronics", Bank PSB.

    German Bild: Russia will wipe the nose of the United States in the space film race, 03/10/2021.

    Already on October 5, a film crew from Russia will travel to the ISS to create the first feature film, tentatively titled Challenge, Bild reports. Thus, she will "rub his nose" with Hollywood actor Tom Cruise, who intended to do it in the spring. It seems that the pain of the Russians due to the fact that they were not the first to be on the moon has not subsided, the German publication believes.

    The first satellite in space, the first dog, the first man, and now the first feature film - it looks like the Russians will once again " wipe the nose " of the Americans, writes Bild. Already on October 5, a film crew from Russia will go on a Soyuz rocket to the international orbital station and thus overtake American actor Tom Cruise, who in the spring announced his plans to make a movie in an airless space. “ It seems that the pain because they were not the first to be on the moon did not subside, ” the German newspaper said.

    Actress Yulia Peresild, director Klim Shipenko and cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov will take part in the new space race. The plot of the film, tentatively titled The Challenge, is as follows: on board the space station, a crew member falls ill and loses consciousness. He will not be able to survive the return to Earth. To save him, a female doctor is sent into orbit. She will have to undergo heart surgery in zero gravity. 35 minutes of timing will be filmed in space, explains the German edition.

    The " propaganda machine " of the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, " works like clockwork ." Federal channels showed how Peresild and Shipenko are preparing for the flight. Like other astronauts, they had to go through tough training. They will stay on the ISS for 12 days, and then return to Earth, that is, even before the German astronaut Matthias Maurer arrives at the station. He himself really wanted to meet in space with Tom Cruise. But it seems that nothing will come of it, since no specific dates in Hollywood have yet been announced and many are sure that filming will not begin before 2022.

    Soviet film industry can be considered good only if you are really into depressing arthouse nonsense

    Russian film industry is larger which means that it can afford to make some stinkers here and there because they know that in entertainment you have to have variety (something Soviets never understood, not in film and not in anything else which is why they are no longer around)



    As for this particular Roskosmos publicity stunt they better have a damn good script ready otherwise they will make laughing stock of themselves again (which is opposite of intended goal here)

    Secret playlist, space traditions and a kilogram of personal belongings: what is known about the flight of Peresild and Shipenko into space, by Victoria Belikova and Daria Dudko for Russian RT News. 04/10/2021.

    On Tuesday, October 5, the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft will launch from Baikonur, with director Klim Shipenko and actress Yulia Peresild on board. During the flight, filming will take place for the film Challenge, the first Russian game project, part of which will take place on the ISS. During a press conference on October 4, the artists told what became the most difficult for them in preparing for the flight, what space traditions they observe and what they will take with them on board.

    On Tuesday, October 5, a part of the film crew of the film "Challenge" will leave the Baikonur cosmodrome for the ISS. The main crew includes the director and scriptwriter of the project Klim Shipenko, the leading role Yulia Peresild and cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov. The backup crew included cameraman Alexei Dudin, actress Alyona Mordovina and cosmonaut Oleg Artemiev.

    The flight start, scheduled for 11:55 Moscow time, will be broadcast on television and on the network, and filming will begin after the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft separates from the launch vehicle.

    During a press conference held on the eve of the flight, Klim Shipenko said that the filmmakers underwent a training course for four months, including both theoretical and practical lessons. According to the director, this process was different from the training of professional astronauts.

    "It is quite a feasible task - not to become an astronaut at the level of Anton (Shkaplerov. - RT ) ... namely, to prepare as a participant in a space flight", - explained Shipenko.

    As Yulia Peresild noted, first of all it was difficult for her to “accept the system”, to reorganize to work in a fundamentally new format. According to the actress, in a creative environment, everything rests on emotions and relationships, indulgences in discipline are allowed. In astronautics, the situation is different: "Everything is in minutes, discipline." The actors also did not develop a warm relationship with the astronauts right away.

    In addition, Julia admitted that it was difficult for her to master the theoretical part - the design and layout of the spacecraft. Without this knowledge, flight would have been impossible. But the practical training made an indelible impression on her.

    “For me, one of the emotional, wonderful shocks was our weightless flights. Unfortunately, it was only once, but 20 slides at once, with refueling. It was wonderful ... Man flies! Let it be 23 seconds, but you're flying! " - Peresild remembered.

    An important part of the training was the communication between filmmakers and astronauts. As the director specified, they were given a lot of valuable advice and recommendations, which will soon be tested in practice. So, now the members of the film crew know how to sleep, drink, use the toilet in space, what to do if they feel dizzy, and so on.

    One of the roles in the film will be performed by Shkaplerov, who will try himself as an actor for the first time. Other astronauts will also appear in the frame. According to Shipenko, the script of the picture changed taking into account the characters of the newly-minted artists.

    “We change their characters a little, of course, and they don't always say the things that we wrote ... We wrote the script to make it easier for them,” the director explained.

    Despite the unusual composition, the crew of the spacecraft follows the traditions of space flights established at Baikonur. Thus, the training program included watching the film "White Sun of the Desert", which since the 1980s has been considered an integral part of preparation for space travel.

    All team members have prepared a list of five to seven songs that will sound before the flight. Although Shkaplerov chose to leave the final composition of the playlist a surprise, it is known that the composition from the cartoon "Antoshka" will play first.

    Paying tribute to other traditions of prelaunch preparation, the crew visited the Baikonur museum complex and Sergey Korolev's house. Peresild admitted that, although four months were not enough for her to fully immerse herself in the past of Russian cosmonautics, visiting iconic places, communicating with pilots and specialists still allowed her to touch the history of flights.

    The press conference also raised the topic of the responsibility of the film crew, which is implementing a project in space for the first time. Noting the importance of the Challenge for the popularization of astronautics and its study, Klim Shipenko stressed that he was not afraid of the task assigned to him: “I feel, as much as I can prepare in the given conditions, ready”.

    It also became known that the crew members will take with them on board. Pointing to the one-kilogram limit, the astronauts said they prefer memorabilia and photographs. So, from Peresild, children's drawings and an indicator of weightlessness will fly into space - a symbol of her charitable foundation "Galchonok", and from Shipenko - a commemorative T-shirt in which he begins filming all his films.

    For the first time in history

    The plans of Russian filmmakers to shoot a feature film in space became known in September 2020. The production involves the studio Yellow, Black and White, the Roscosmos corporation and Channel One. Producers include Bakur Bakuradze (Salyut-7) and Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin.

    The heroine of the upcoming tape is a doctor. According to the plot, she will have to prepare for a flight into space in a month and go to the ISS to provide assistance to the wounded astronaut.

    To find an actress for the main role, an open competition was organized in which everyone could take part, regardless of their type of activity. The results of the competition were summed up in May 2021. According to Klim Shipenko, the performers of the remaining roles will be approved after the completion of the space block of filming. It is possible that Alena Mordovina will appear on the screen.

    The Challenge will be the first Russian feature film, part of which will be filmed at the International Space Station. Foreign filmmakers are also preparing for filming in space. The Hollywood project will be directed by Doug Lyman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) and starred by Tom Cruise. Elon Musk's SpaceX company participates in the production.

    1) Parody only works if it's made by the same people who also made the work they are parodying (Naked Gun made by Russia wouldn't work at all)

    2) Rogozin is too fat to fit in Soyuz

    3) I am again noticing a certain disconnect between your stated location and constant derision of alternative lifestyles which are universally accepted in the West (lifestyles which also have nothing to do with this particular publicity stunt)

    This Russian movie is being filmed just before a tom cruise movie also set in space... you can bet your ass the tc movie will have black and transgender people and of course lots of women in important positions of power, and the Russians in the film will be alcoholics trying to destroy the world with some secret plan involving nuclear weapons.

    Parodies only work if they are NOT made by the people who created the original... the British who make james bond movies couldn't make johhny english movies... or austin powers movies.

    Of course it does not always work that third Ghostbusters movie made with an all woman cast was supposed to be a parody... I have no intention of watching it so I don't know whether it was any good or not...


    1) Parody only works if it's made by the same people who also made the work they are parodying (Naked Gun made by Russia wouldn't work at all)

    3) I am again noticing a certain disconnect between your stated location and constant derision of alternative lifestyles which are universally accepted in the West (lifestyles which also have nothing to do with this particular publicity stunt)

    What an awesome post from you there PD... you start by saying Russia can't make parodies, you manage to slip your boyfriend Rogozin in there and then you end with a plea for me to shut up and just drink the Kool Aide and get with the programme

    Sour and bitter on all counts there mate.

    There are good script writers everywhere, but in the US and the west these days all the power is in the producers and producers are woke and have a woke agenda to push... good script writers can either adapt and conform, or they wont get their films made... and most script writers tell a story... a story that is generally ruined by woke producers... so those stories are not going to get told for a while.

    Our only hope could be other film producing countries step up and fill the gap... you say for Russia it is impossible... I say let them try.

    Bollywood is already bigger than Hollywood... but focused on a very different audience... it seems Hollywood is shifting its audience to a minority of the western world and the virtue signalling try hards that try to be with it and cool by supporting them no matter what... you know... people with Penises and people with Vaginas and also people without either.

    Maybe if the only Soviet films you are aware of are limited to Solaris and Battleship Potemkin

    It was actually only the depressing arthouse stuff that was ever brought over to the West from the USSR, and the propaganda intention here was clear. They never brought over the animations and cartoons either, which were some of the best and that tells you something as well.

    In fact the Soviet movie scene was hugely varied - comedies, dramas, war movies, horror.
    And on average better quality and more authentic than the copying Hollywood trend of Russian cinema today that started in the mid-2000s.

    Funny because American bullshit films that look like they have potential and then end the way a child would write them make me feel like killing US movie makers.

    Obviously I don't act on it.

    And on average better quality and more authentic than the copying Hollywood trend of Russian cinema today that started in the mid-2000s.

    Most of the masses are not interested in intelligent movies... they don't want to have to think about it afterwards and talk to their friends about it...

    To be honest western entertainment has been gradually going more woke all the time... old staples like Dr Who have always had anti gun messages, so social control suggestions about how things should be... yet in computer games the first few desperate minutes of the game is normally scrambling to acquire a decent weapon like the crowbar or knife or whatever in Half Life...

    This Russian movie sounds like it revolves around a medical emergency in space where a surgeon has to be sent up to deal with a problem the patient can't be returned home for it to be performed.

    The woke west will love that because the doctor is a woman which is exactly how they would write it, but actually it is perfectly normal for a doctor in Russia to be a woman, so it is just normal that the person they send would be a woman.

    It has potential to be interesting....
