Two groups are making feature movies at the ISS (International Space Station) this month.

The Russians took off today, and since I am half a world away from the launch site, they are probably already on board the ISS. Tom Cruise is also planning to launch into orbit this month. 

Салют-7. История одного подвига. Документальный фильм
[Salute-7. The story of one feat. Documentary]

I still haven't seen the Russian film about saving the Soviet space station. I should rectify that.

Update two days later. Just realized that the trailer won't play, so I replaced it with the movie, or part of it anyway. Wikipedia says the movie is two hours long, this video is only 40 minutes. It's in Russian, but you can enable the subtitles by clicking on the cc icon in status bar along the bottom. Well, that will give you subtitles, but they will be in Russian. To get the English ones, you need to click on the settings icon (the one that looks like a flower or a swollen asterisk), and then follow the menu a couple of levels down until you get to English.
