Russian movie 'The Challenge' is the first to be filmed in space

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with my best movie announcer voice.

(Imitating announcer) In a world where Russia has the first-ever feature film shot in space, an actor and producer joined a real-life cosmonaut on the International Space Station for a film called "The Challenge."

They add this to the first satellite, first dog and first man and woman in space. Technically, it's out of this world, but out next month.
